More flights, more tourists. Spanish tourism to get a further boost this year

Flights to Gran Canaria


It seems holidaymakers can’t get enough of Spain this year. High season is in full throttle, the beaches are packed and tourism figures announced by government research agency Frontur demonstrate record levels of visitors this year. And it doesn’t look like it’s letting up. As this week it has been announced that a number of European airlines are adding extra routes to fulfill the Autumn/Winter season.  

Ryanair announced 88 new routes to their 2013-2014 winter schedule, making it their busiest ever winter schedule. New routes to Spain are Bournemouth to Alicante and Malaga and Manchester to Palma. The added schedules are great news for both British travellers to Spain and Spanish tourism.  

And Ryanair is not the only airline to announce an increased frequency to their schedules to Spain this year: Spanish airline Vueling introduced 35% more flights from Cardiff to Malaga this summer and a new route to Luxembourg; Norwegian Air Shuttle one of the fastest growing carriers in Europe, increased the number of direct flights to Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Malaga and Alicante and Turkish Airlines and Austrian Airlines have also confirmed increased schedules for the Autumn/Winter season.  

These new and increased flight schedules are great news for Spain. Sustaining and improving yearly tourism figures will aid the long-term recovery of the Spanish economy.
