Cheap Flights - Cheap Tourists?

With Spain's economic woes continuing - they had to pay 5.8% on today's Bond Market to raise 2.5 billion Euros - you might imagine that as tourism forms such a large part of their GDP the country would be happy to see tourists arriving and spending their money in shops, bars and restaurants, as well as staying in hotels or villas.

Every tourist that arrives is new money for the Spanish economy.

But one tourist official made a remark last summer, which he quickly retracted, that low cost airlines bring in low spending tourists.

While the remark was retracted, it is interesting to see that point of view, however briefly, surface from the tourism industry.

One travel blog which specialises in the Spanish weather including the weather in Lanzarote points out a few truths about why the budget airlines are a force of good.

Will Climate Change Hit Tourist Island Economies?

In the UK this Easter the two big questions to do with the climate was why was it so awful during the four day break, and for gardeners getting used to a hose pipe ban.

But for islands like Cyprus who depend heavily on tourism climate change is a much more serious issue.

Some scientists claim that in a few years time the summer will simply be too hot for tourists.

In response tourism officials are looking at ways of making Cyprus a year round destination, and with the weather predicted to be warmer in the winter, a little like the weather in Tenerife, they're making plans just in case what they are being told is right.
