Alpitour to hold Covid-tested trial runs on Canary Islands

Safe corridors with tests on departure and arrival

    TURIN - Starting in March, the Alpitour group will start an experimentation for Covid-tested holidays.

    The idea is to provide safe corridors to the Canary Islands as part of an initial response to demand ahead of larger tourist flows.

    The Canary Islands, which in the 1980s were the first step towards abroad, a sort of 'exotic' that was nevertheless close to home, are thus the first international destination offered as part of the Alpitour group COVID-tested holidays.

    Two special measures will be included in the package for the Canary Islands: reduced fees for the PCR required prior to departure from Italy and a second test run by the group itself for resort guests prior to their return home.

    Travellers will thus be ensured that they do not have COVID and many of the bureaucratic and health-related procedures currently necessary for travel will be made less burdensome.

    Neos flights will begin on March 27 from Milan's Malpensa airport, followed the next Saturday by ones from Verona for Tenerife and Fuerteventura.

    The facilities selected will be from Alpitour and Francorosso.
