Uk to Spain Flight Market Named the Largest in Europe

Departure sign in airportThe UK to Spain flight market has been named the largest in Europe this winter, according to the latest Official Airline Guide (OAG) data.

Compared to last year’s winter season, the market has grown by over 12% for the number of seats and flights between Spain and the UK, suggesting that more and more Britons are seeking winter sun and choosing Spain as their desired destination.

The UK-Spain relationship is not only good for airlines, but also for the Spanish property market.

The Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España, Marc Pritchard, explains: “The increase in the number of flights and seats available between Spain and the UK reaffirms the high demand for the Spanish sunshine, as Brits seek an escape from the dreary winter weather at home.

“With short-haul flights from the UK to Spain proving the most popular routes in Europe, Taylor Wimpey España are ready to accommodate this winter sun demand with the launch of a new residential phase on the La Recoleta III development in Torrevieja.”

He adds: “This area of the Costa Blanca is particularly popular due to the excellent climate and transportation links, as well as the range of available watersports, including windsurfing, sailing and paragliding that can be enjoyed all year round.”

The development is based in a wonderful location by the sea, with Torrevieja just ten minutes away by car. It is one of the most favoured destinations on the Costa Blanca, partly due to its excellent transport links – the EL Altet International Airport (Alicante) is only 45 minutes away, while the San Javier Airport (Murcia) is around 30 minutes away.
