Tourism in La Palma suffers set back

Plans to boost tourism in La Palma seems to have suffered a set back, after a French tour operator announced that they were ceasing their operations on the islands after a few weeks.

Thalasso is reported to have cancelled last week’s flights from Nantes and Lyon, and the fear is that they may do the same for the rest of the season.

If that is the case, it will be considered a major blow for tourism officials who were hoping that the flights would be a boost to the islands economy.
