Ibiza’s first non-quarantined tourists arrived on the island this morning, Sunday 21st of June.

Internal flights arrived from Madrid, Barcelona and Palma, and international flights from Milan, Bologna, Amsterdam, Marseille and London.

The Diario de ibiza talked to passengers arriving on the Milan flight, stating that several said they were workers arriving for the season, who had chosen to arrive today so as to avoid the 14 day quarantine that would have been necessary if they had flown into Spain earlier.
