The acting councillor for Economic Model, Tourism and Employment, Iago Negueruela, met this morning with representatives of the Irish airline Ryanair, to work to defend the local product and to ensure that travellers can continue to transport ensaimadas as they have done up until now. The meeting was also attended by representatives of the Association of Bakers and Confectioners of the Balearic Islands.

Ryanair clarified during the meeting that it has never charged for the transport of ensaimadas on its planes, and reiterated that the conditions of transport have not changed. The representatives of the airline who attended the meeting were David Simón, Ryanair’s director of public policy, and Gala Sierra, from the company’s Public and Legal Affairs.

On behalf of the Government, Iago Negueruela praised the willingness of Ryanair, a company that transports thousands of people to the Balearic Islands every year, to collaborate with the Executive and that after this meeting it has been possible to clarify the situation, without prejudice to users.

Negueruela defended the local product of the Islands, in this case, the ensaimada, and praised the fact that both residents and tourists can continue to transport this typical product on the Irish airline’s planes, always respecting the security and baggage conditions in force.
