The Port Authorities in Arrecife have announced passenger and freight figures for March 2020, taking into account the state of alarm since the 15th of the month, which, unsurprisingly show a decrease both in passengers and in the delivery of goods.
Passenger figures saw an instant drop in the second half of the month when cruises were stopped internationally, with 20,500 cruise passengers registered for the whole month of March, compared to more than 70,000 in 2019. This drop and the fact that April will be zero passengers, already means it is unfeasible to hit this years target of 500,000, particularly with, at this moment in time, no indication of when it will resume.
There was also a decrease in March in terms of regular line boat users, of which there were almost 6,500, compared to about 11,400 in the third month of last year.
Regarding freight movements, the figures were also down for imports and exports, 127,000 tons of various goods were moved, with an estimated decrease, by the Port Authority of 17.3%.
