Lanzarote "Getting back on track"
Lanzarote moved out of lockdown and into the
“new normality” on June 18
This is in preparation for opening up to tourists from
other Schengen zone countries* from 22nd June.
(*Schengen area countries. Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland)
A recent statement by the Spanish Government is that UK will not be added while there is still a 14 day quarantine period in place there.
This policy is due for its first review by the UK Government
on 29 June 2020
The UK Government is also looking at "air bridges" with designated countries to ensure that people can safely go on holiday.
