Bad, dramatic, catastrophic… it’s hard to find a positive adjective when asking about the current tourist situation. The sector has been in intensive care for months and the latest setbacks in Europe have dispelled the dream that, at least, summer would stabilize its evolution. Employers calculate that their forecasts so far, which pointed to total losses of 40,000 million in the second half and a drop in air passengers of 50% in August, will worsen. That will take the losses of 2020 above the 83,000 million that Exceltur calculated, more than half of the contribution of the sector to the Spanish economy. And employers also warn that losing the summer is much more than losing three months of the year. They warn that at the end of the year 750,000 jobs are in danger.
