Number of airline seats to Malaga up by 15% on last year to meet demand!

9. ICONIC - Banus


The number of flights between Malaga and 123 destinations has increased by three times on last year to meet demand.

A total of 13.5 million seats (15% more than last year) are available on nearly 80,000 flights between now and the end of the season at the end of October, according to figures released by the airports authority Aena.

The number of airlines operating flights to and from Malaga has also gone up by eight this year, with 220 routes.

This increase is due to the huge early surge in demand for holidays to Spain, which started long before Christmas. According to The Association of British Travel Agents, ABTA, the growth in popularity of the western Mediterranean is being driven partly by a drop in business to traditionally popular destinations like Tunisia and Egypt, following terrorist incidents and changes to Foreign Office travel advice.

Another factor behind this growth is the continuing readjustment in the overseas holiday market following the significant falls seen in 2008 and 2009 after the financial crisis and credit crunch, when overall UK passenger numbers fell by 15%. In 2015, UK airlines reported that passenger numbers had returned to pre-credit crunch levels. Mark Tanzer, ABTA’s chief executive said: “The significant increase in summer holiday bookings to western Mediterranean destinations is also being mirrored in other northern European markets so it makes it more important than ever that customers book early to obtain the best value and ensure they get the holiday of their choice.”

Here at Suncoaster Holidays we have already exceeded our forecast for summer and winter bookings this year so be sure to book now with us to get the best deals and for the widest choice of accommodation.

We look forward to seeing you again this year in the sun!
