Although living in Almeria he finds that with the frequency of flights into Alicante it more convenient to fly there.


It is an extraordinary volume of passengers, especially in the popular holiday months of April to August which beat figures consistently from the previous year. Throughout 2013 the airport recorded 9,638,835 passengers and by the end of tomorrow, the last day of 2014, the figure will be about 10.05 million.– and forecast to rise even further during 2015. The airport is used by millions of holidaymakers who head to Benidorm every year and served by virtually all the low cost carriers out of the UK. It is the sixth busiest airport in Spain and among the top 50 in Europe.
