The Canary Islands lead the Spanish tourism prospects for the last quarter of 2023, as reflected in the latest Exceltur tourism outlook report, which places the archipelago at the head of the rest of the national territory driven by the increase in demand and air connectivity. 

The Minister of Tourism and Employment, Jéssica de León, said that this data “corroborates our forecasts for the end of the year with a record turnover of 19.4 billion euros,” she highlighted.

The report states that the Canary Islands leads the expected dynamism of its sales for the fourth quarter of 2023 and highlights a good start to the high season, with an intense improvement in air connectivity, estimated at a 32% increase compared to normal pre-pandemic levels. 

In this sense, the Minister of Tourism and Employment emphasizes that "despite all the socioeconomic conditions, the recovery of demand for travel to the Canary Islands continues to evolve at a very positive pace, with the best summer in recent years, which is at a growth of 3.7% compared to 2022 and 5.1 percent compared to 2019.”

In addition, de León advanced the prospects for the winter season that runs from November 2023 until March 2024, “where we see significant growth in the number of tourists since airlines have scheduled around 9.5 million air seats to the Canary Islands, which is 6.6% more than last winter and translates into 593,000 more places.”
