Long queues have formed at Majorca Airport’s passport control with holidaymakers waiting hours for their stamps before they are allowed onto their transfer coaches.
Tour operators have blamed passport control at the Palma de Mallorca Airport with the average waiting time of three hours.
The Balearic Business Federation of Transport (FEBT) said, “All flights from the UK, as a consequence of Brexit, are affected by passport controls in the airport terminal building.
“The massive arrival of tourists has collapsed this service, so this problem must urgently be solved – now that we still have time.”
The federation’s manager, Salvador Servera, said, “The delegate told us that the problem will be solved in June with the arrival of police forces as part of Operation Summer, but it is vital that this is the case, as the whole season is at stake.”
The federation asked for “coordination in the services” to protect the “image” of the island’s services and they have linked the issues to a shortage of police officers.
