Spain’s airports continue to grow, maintaining the influx of passengers visiting Spain on an upwards trend.
The airport which has done exceptionally well in terms of growth and improved connectivity with the rest of the EU as well as customer service was the Alicante-Elche airport which has gained 1.1 million passengers this year and places itself in the group of Europe’s largest airports.
Anea (Aeropuertos Españoles y Navegación Aérea) – Spanish Airports and Air Navigation, forecasts that the terminal will close the year with over 15 million passengers, 8% more than last year.
