Dear All,

In the local Alicante news it is said ("http://www.diarioinformacion.com/secciones/noticia.jsp?pNumEjemplar
=1947&pIdSeccion=12&pIdNoticia=599763&rand=1170825106805", in Spanish; it is also announced in the Ryanair web page) that the Ryanair representative for South Europe has presented the new flights to London-Standsted (daily), Dublin (five days a week), Pisa (four days a week), Dusseldorf (daily) and Liverpool (three days a week), all from Alicante. This decission comes after the new building joined to the present terminal has been finished (it should be recalled that it has no fingers) but in two years time the new terminal (15 fingers) will be finished. I suppose that now Murcia will be Murcia, not Murcia-Alicante. In total there are 17 airports in Spain served by Ryanair.

I foresee that in the near future, Easyjet, Thomsonfly and now Ryanair will be the ones which will have more flights and passengers from Alicante (similarly to other Spanish airports). I suppose that the next move will be to see the change from Iberia to Clickair. Will see.

Regards,
Dme.

FR has previously operated to and from ALC.

It also announced PMI.

These two airports mean that FR now serves 18 Spanish airports, including TFN, FUE and PMI. In comparison, the airline now serves 19 French airports (DOL has been withdrawn) and 21 Italian airports (including those in Sciliy and Sardinia). Note: the word now is used even if it either currently serves them or when it has officially announced that it will.

Quoting Pe@rson (Reply 1):
(DOL has been withdrawn)

Was that in relation to the protests by the people of Deauville, that FR would be bringing the 'wrong kind of tourist' to the area?

I have no idea why it will cease, besides the obvious: that it is unprofitable.

Although I have no figure to support it, I'm very sure that a good proportion of the people that'd use the STN-DOL flight, likewise to BES and DNR, would indeed be those with second homes or those on a family holiday for both Brittany and Lower Normandy are traditional family holiday areas for Britons. Moreover, Brittany itself has a population of over 4.1m, thus a proportion of the customers must surely be French, perhaps for tourism (after all, London's a great city) or for VFR reasons. Hence, I'd venture to guess that most people on -DOL, -BES and -DNR flights would be middle-aged couples or those with their families. Whatever, it seems highly improbable that Brittany and Lower Normandy would be invaded by people wanting a hard-core clubbing weekend.
