More UK-Costa Blanca flights added to the schedules for 2017

It was announced on Tuesday at the World Travel Market tourism fair in London that Jet2 will be introducing two new routes at Alicante-Elche airport in 2017.

For the first time, the Yorkshire-based airline will be offering flights between the Costa Blanca and London Stansted, as well as another service linking Alicante with Birmingham, providing a further indication that there is expected to be no negative effect of Brexit on tourism in Alicante next year.

Jet2 already offers services between Alicante-Elche and Edinburgh, East Midlands, Glasgow, Leeds-Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle and Belfast, but only now has the company moved into southern England with its Stansted routes. The airline’s links with Alicante are further strengthened by the fact that this year the city was included for the first time on its list of 20 suggested “city break” destinations.
