HIGH season schedules have started at El Alquian airport.
Between now and the last weekend in October, scheduled flights and charters will link Almeria to 29 European destinations including the UK, Ireland, Holland, France, Scandinavia and Germany.
Airports’ operator AENA highlighted the increase in international operators using El Alquian. In just four years Almeria has progressed from connections with just seven countries to the present 20, an AENA spokesman said.
“There has been a tremendous improvement in international connections but that doesn’t mean we can stop working,” maintained Javier Aureliano Garcia, vice-president of the Almeria Provincial Government.
“We went to the last ITB trade fair in Berlin with an intense work schedule, determined to connect Almeria and Germany,” Garcia said.
Neither will the important interior market be neglected. As well as the existing routes to Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla and Melilla, flights to Valencia, Bilbao, Santander, Santiago de Compostela and Zaragoza will be added during the summer months.
