FLIGHT sales to Catalunya have dropped drastically following the referendum fallout.
According to ForwardKeys, international air bookings for the Spanish region fell by 22% since the beginning of October compared to the same period last year.
Chief Executive Olivier Jager, said: “Domestic political unrest almost always deters visitors and that is what we are seeing now – a 22% collapse in international flight bookings for Catalunya.
“This will also have a knock-on to other parts of Spain because many visitors arriving in Catalunya will travel around the country.
“If the political crisis worsens, I fear we will see a further decline in bookings. This trend will be of great concern because travel and tourism represents such a large proportion of the Spanish economy, over 14% of GDP.”
