New summer sun flights announced
Glasgow Airport has landed new sunshine flights to holiday hotspots in Spain and Portugal for next summer, the Evening Times reports Thousands of extra seats are set to be available from the city airport next year to resorts in the Costas, the Canaries, the Balearics and the Algarve.
Manchester-based Sunways Holidays is to launch the new summer flights from Scotland and hopes to fly almost 25,000 passengers next year. The announcement follows the recent collapse of Seguro Holidays, which flew from local rival Prestwick, and of XL Airways.
Sunways plans to offer two flights a week to Girona on the Costa Brava, with one flight a week to Alicante on the Costa Blanca, Faro in the Algarve, the Canary islands of Lanzarote and Gran Canaria and Palma, Majorca next summer.
Felipe Rodriguez, managing director and founder of Sunways, told the newspaper: ‘We felt that with the demise of Seguro Holidays and XL Airways there was demand in Scotland for good value holidays to popular destinations.'
Airport managing director Amanda McMillan added: ‘We are delighted to welcome Sunways to Scotland and wish them every success with their 2009 programme. This is further good news for Glasgow Airport and shows that, despite the current economic climate, it is possible to attract new business.’
