Summer Season Figures
55% of capacity was reached in summer. Not all the same in the regions of Andalusia: rural area and mountainous area the tourism figures have been excellent. Other areas inland have had 80% of occupation. The coast has had 65% or even 35%.
Some of the regions for the decrease has been the reduction of flights
Good results from domestic and national tourism: mainly inland/rural
Bad results on coast since it is dependent on international tourism: Malaga etc
Situation to the coast become worst at the end of the summer when more cancellations occurred from northern Europe
Measures to revert situation
