a global crisis we won't be reaching the capacity we had expected we will try to get to 50 to 60 percent. i think when. many associate the costa del sol with mass tourism every base of the coastline has been built up you need a lot of tourists to fill the hotels and restaurants here. present around a 3rd of hotels are open. this promotional video is part of a response from the tourist board. the hope is that stunning footage like this will draw more visitors to the costa del sol. is a solid destination and luckily we have the molokai province so we'll slowly recover i can't say how long it will take that would be very risky we have a. change of location now to minorca one of the body eric islands

here data scientists are trying to predict the future of tourism. employees use this information to identify trends. in those offices that old data won't help us right now there's no use comparing july 29th seen with july 2020 intuition won't help because there's so much uncertainty right now we can't guess what will happen next. right now tourist industry professionals are looking for facts about how visitors are behaving right now in real time. but the current situation underscores what we've been saying for years but with people of that you can examine tourist dynamics in real time. and even partly predict to. minorca does have

study. the videos have triggered a rise in online searches and more reservations. but minorca has encountered another problem as a result of the corona virus. and that's one of. their own is enough flights and those that are running are expensive this makes everything harder the connections are important the flight cancellations and unattractive prices make everything harder. it was if you. think de sac can't solve that problem. but at least tourist industry professionals in minorca know where in germany that would be visitors live. and what effect that we can see where there's a demand not only in what country but in what region united. and that helps when discussing possible routes with airlines and any. such
