It seems that the prospects for those who want to travel during summer 2021 have begun to take on a more positive connotation: from May 15th, in fact, for those traveling to Italy from Europe, it will be enough to show the negative swab report or the Covid vaccination certificate, without having to undergo the quarantine period required until now.
This regulation will apply to all the countries of the European Union, Great Britain and Israel, and has obviously been welcomed with great relief by the Italian tourism sector, which is already beginning to see the first reservations for the summer from the Netherlands, Germany. and Portugal.
The next step, now, consists in applying the same measures also for those coming from the United States (where Covid-free flights are already on the agenda), from Russia and China, the most important areas where tourist come from to visit Italy.
Regarding Sicily, however, the Covid-free islands project has been correctly launched: in Salina for example the first part of the generalized vaccination has already been completed and the other Aeolian islands are proceeding, and the same is for Lampedusa. The project will end with the islands of Ustica and Linosa, with the hope of ending within a few weeks and making some of the most important locations of tourism in Italy safe for both its population and tourists.
For those traveling from Sicily, on the other hand, Palermo Falcone e Borsellino Airport announced the 91 destinations for summer 2021, between domestic and international, aimed at connecting 21 countries with 31 airlines, including some new entries such as Blue Air , Lumiwings, Lot and Wizz Air.
After a difficult year for tourists and operators of the sector, it would therefore seem that there is a glimpse, which it is hoped to become bigger and more concrete in the coming weeks.
