Historic record for airport

SPECIAL OCCASION: Alicante-Elche airport has recorded its 11 millionth passenger.

ALICANTE-ELCHE airport has marked a special occasion having recorded its 11 millionth passenger.

The lucky traveller was Ivonne Jhojansson from Sweden, travelling on a Norwegian flight for Gothenburg with her husband.

She was presented with a bouquet of flowers and a commemorative gift.


Once the plane had landed and before the passengers had disembarked the airport firefighters used their hoses to send an arch of water over the aircraft.

Next year the airport will be celebrating its 50th anniversary.

When it opened on May 4 1967 Pilar Leaz Lavina was recorded as being the first passenger to use Alicante airport.
