Costa Adeje hails united approach to Brexit and Thomas Cook issues
The World Travel Market 2019 held in London proved to be one of the most fruitful in recent years for Costa Adeje.
The event featured an intense agenda that included meetings and collaborations with the national and regional governments and the Cabildo de Tenerife, aimed at strengthening the work to alleviate the Thomas Cook crisis and tackle the situation that Brexit is generating.
In this sense, the agree-ments announced with Jet2 and other agents of the sector have been described as significant by the Mayor of Adeje, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, for whom the effort made from all adminis-trations, and the union of action demonstrated in the last weeks, has been an example of how to act in crisis situations.
“Expectations have been exceeded in terms of the shadows with which we arrived in London and we have shown that the Canary Islands is a solid, resilient destination, capable of overcoming crises,” he said. “From now on, we must continue working all together as we have done before this very complicated situation. ”
Adeje also followed its own agenda that included, among other aspects, meetings and contacts with the heads of the main hotel chains present in the municipality. In addition, both the Mayor and councillor, Adolfo Alonso Ferrera, had the opportunity to assess the situation of other tour operators working in the Canary Islands and probe their current strength.
“We must send a message of tranquility because the operators that continue to operate in the Canary Islands are in a solid situation and a repeat of a crisis like that of Thomas Cook doesn’t look likely in the near future, “ said the Mayor.
Sr. Fraga said the Costa Adeje’s commitment to quality was absolute, as is the commitment to the environ-ment.
“Tourism must generate well-being for our people, quality work and that the citizens perceive that it is good because it generates wealth and opportunities for the whole society, ” he added.
Another piece of good news in London came through the delivery of the awards for hotel tourism excellence granted by the specialised guide Count Nast Johansens for almost 40 years. Of the five award-winning hotels in Spain, three of them are in Costa Adeje. This is the Hotel Bahía del Duque, awarded for having the Best Customer Service; the Royal Hideway Corales Resort, for being the best hotel for families; and GF Victoria, as the one that best treats accessible tourism.
