Humidity Fog in Mallorca - 15.03.2012
Cala Millor Humidity Fog in March
The extremely high air temperatures together with the cool sea temperatures over the last few days have resulted in a thick humidity fog in many areas of Mallorca. You can see the band of fog here in Cala Millor.
Low Cost Airlines
20% of people flying to Spain on low-cost airlines, flew into Palma airport.
According to recent Tourism statistics, tourist arrivals to Mallorca from June-August rose by 12.5% from last years figures.
The number of Cruise Ships which visited Majorca has increased greatly over the last few years with 1.4 million passengers during 2011, an increase of 6% on the previous year. Although a further rise in passengers was predicted for 2012, the loss of the Costa Concordia will have an impact, in fact it is estimated that Palma has lost 2.9 million in revenue so far. The replacement ship Costa neoRomantica will begin in March 2012 although this could be replaced in May by the Costa Magica which has a much larger capacity. Cruise Ships have greatly increased tourism in Palma de Mallorca and from April 2012 some shops in Palma de Mallorca will be open on Sundays. This will be of great benefit to visiting Tourists!
