Canaries added to UK and German safe travel list - How safe is it to fly?

Its been a tough few months here on the islands, but yesterday we finally got the news we'd been waiting for.. The Canary Islands have now been added to UK and German safe travel list.

Corralejo - Fuerteventura

This means visitors will no longer need to quarantine on their return home.

Fuerteventura is extremely popular for winter holidaymakers, with fabulous weather in November, December and beyond. For the time being at least, visitors to the Canaries will simply have to fill in passenger locator forms and will face no restrictions on entry.

Many flight companies will now resume their services to the Canaries with the first flights departing to Fuerteventura and Lanzarote this weekend.

Still worried about flying? It's safer than you think!

According to a report by the IATA (International Air Transport Association) catching coronavirus on a flight is less likely than being struck by lighting.

They said that between January and July this year, there have been just 44 cases where coronavirus is thought to have been transmitted during a flight. This number includes confirmed, probable and potential cases.

They also stated that 1.2 billion passengers have travelled by air, representing a one in 27 million probability of catching Covid-19 on a flight.
