Monarch Airlines, one the leading carriers to Spain, is increasing its programme of flights to the land of sun, sea and sand from April due to growing customer demand.
Keen to escape to sunnier climes, the airline which operates regular flights from London Gatwick and Manchester airports, has added additional flights from the UK to holiday and second home hotspots of Malaga on the Costa del Sol, Alicante on the Costa Blanca and the Balearic island of Majorca.
As the MD of Monarch Airlines commented: “We have been astonished by the soaring demand for Monarch flights in April, which we believe is being driven by the proximity of Easter to the additional bank holiday. Bookings for April are already up 49% compared with the same time last year with demand from customers still increasing.”
Overall tourism to Spain is on the increase with car hire comparison company, carhiremarket.com, reporting that the Iberian nation was the most popular destination for 25% of Brits taking a fly drive holiday in December 2010 and January 2011 with Palma de Majorca taking pole position.
The latest Eurostat data also paints a positive picture revealing that of all 27 Eurozone states, travellers spent the largest number of nights in Spanish hotels in 2010, an increase of 6.4% on 2009 levels.
Indeed the destinations set to receive additional flights from Monarch mirror the locations in which Taylor Wimpey de España offers superb new build developments. It is re-confirmation of TWE’s belief – it’s all about location location location.
Ignacio Osle, Sales and Marketing Director comments: ‘We are obviously delighted with the increase of flights from the UK to Malaga, Alicante and Majorca where we have offices and properties; it just goes to show that the Brits are still returning to the best spots in Spain.
“Our sales figures have not once reflected the decrease in interest in property that the rest of Spain has seen. We feel very fortunate to have selected premium locations such as these to focus our core Spanish business on. It really does mean that we have been able to get on with doing what we do well and that is building superb homes, using the best labour force and the highest quality materials that we can to do the job.”
