AENA foresees an increase of 8.5% in operations between March 22 and April 1 compared to the previous year, while revenues are also at a record high.

The Tourism Board advances good tourism forecasts for Fuerteventura during Easter, which will exceed 82% occupancy in regulated establishments according to the data provided by the Travel Agencies (OTAs) and Tour Operators by virtue of the contracts already made, a data that is complemented by those provided by AENA regarding the forecast of operations, which grew by 8.5%. 

The Tourism Counselor of the Fuerteventura Council, Marlene Figueroa, has indicated that the final global count will exceed 85% since every day more tourists book flights and accommodation directly without going through agencies or intermediaries.

According to the information provided by AENA, Fuerteventura Airport will receive an increased number of arrivals and departures by 8.5% compared to the same period of the previous year, with a total of 1,659 operations scheduled between March 22 and next Monday, April 1st. The day with the highest number of scheduled flights will be Saturday, March 30.

The latest data published by the National Institute of Statistics (INE) last week reflects a year-on-year growth in general hotel prices of 7.7% in February, which in the case of Fuerteventura translates into an increase in turnover between 5% and 10% compared to the previous year.

The increase in demand tends to raise prices to historical highs, allowing the accommodation offer and Fuerteventura as a whole in terms of tourist destination to improve its income, explained Marlene Figueroa, who emphasizes that the commitment in the coming months is to consolidate the indicators and good forecasts, also for summer and autumn and to continue working on the quality of the island's touristic offer.
