Ryanair will expand the number of routes from Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernández Airport to a total of 80 this summer, 10 of which will be brand new destinations.
The company’s spokesperson in Spain and Portugal, Elena Cabrera, stated that this will also involve increasing the number of aircraft based at Alicante-Elche Airport, which will go from eleven to thirteen, with an investment of around 200 million euro and the creation of 390 new direct jobs, and up to 5,100 indirect jobs, according to Ryanair.
The new destinations that Ryanair incorporates from Alicante are Belfast (United Kingdom), Fez (Morocco), Frankfurt Hahn and Paderborn (Germany), Lodz and Warsaw (Poland), Klagenfurt (Austria), Rome Fiumicino and Turin (Italy) and Santander (Spain).
The eighty routes represent “Ryanair’s largest schedule in its history in Alicante”, a city where it has been operating for 16 years, and will make it possible to offer 6.3 million seats per year (4.7 million of them in the summer campaign: from 1 from April to September 30).
In addition to the new routes, Cabrera has highlighted that the frequencies of 30 of the existing destinations will increase by an average of 19%, including Bordeaux, London Stansted, Milan Bergamo, Porto and Bologna.
Four of the 13 aircraft based in Alicante during the summer will be new Boeing “Gamechangers” units, which are more environmentally sustainable by emitting 16% less carbon dioxide (CO2), carrying 4% more passengers and having 20% less acoustic impact, Cabrera reported.
Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernández Airport closed the month of January 2023 with 795,148 passengers, which means exceeding by 1.3% the data for the same month of 2019, the pre-pandemic year, and registering the best January in its history, with a traffic increase of 68.1% compared to the same month last year.

Alenda Golf is a popular 18 holes golf course located only 15 minutes from Alicante International Airport with cheap flights to and from most European destinations.Situated at the foot of the Sierra de Las Aguilas mountains, the Alenda Golf Club has built a wonderful 18-hole golfing experience with gentle terrain but still a challenging par of 72.It’s a varied course suitable for all skill levels but you will probably have to use every club in your bag.
The tricky undulating greens in particular demand a good putting line that allows for the slope. Flag positions are changed on a regular basis so each green challenges your ability to read greens and pace.
Designed by Roland Favrat and opened in 1999, the course is mature, well planned, and provides a relatively quick round as all the holes are linked together with short distances between the tees and greens.
The first nine holes are medium length, on wide fairways, but still, require accuracy rather than strength. For the backside concentration is needed, on this technical part of the course accuracy is definitely more important than your ability to hit it long. Take particular care at the tricky 16th and be careful where you drive your ball on the last. Many a match has been lost with water down the left, an elevated green that makes everything hit short run down the hill away from the hole.
The course offers a scenic view across the Mediterranean and the mountains with all fairways being lined by both ancient olive and palm trees.
Alenda Golf has an extensive driving range that allows full drives from the 25 placement mats, there is also a Bunker and pitch & putt practice area. The Driving range is illuminated and allows you to practice up until 22:00 h. There is also an excellent practice area which consists of 6 tees of various distances that all converge onto the same green that has three varying holes cut.It is ideal for beginners and experts who want to practice the short game.
The clubhouse is ultra-modern and offers a fully fitted gym with classes for all types of health fanatics, and a great Tapas restaurant. The well stocked pro shop is friendly and accessible, there are clean and tidy changing rooms with towels available. The clubhouse boasts fantastic views down to Alicante and the ocean whilst the surrounding mountains where Eagles swoop are just a glance away.
Spain demands that the EU scraps 90 days in 180 rules for British tourists
Spain’s tourism minister is putting pressure on Brussels to allow UK holidaymakers to stay longer
Tough post-Brexit travel restrictions mean that UK citizens are severely limited in the amount of time they can spend in Spain, a factor which is proving detrimental to the Spanish tourism sector.
An EU-wide rule states that holidaymakers from Britain can only remain in Spain for 90 days in every 180: bad news for second home owners as well as the local economy, which relies heavily on UK visitors.
Figures released this week show that the sale of real estate in the Valencian Community grew by 16% in November compared to the same month of 2020, the third autonomous region with the highest increase after Andalusia and Catalonia, while total mortgages rose 7.2%.
Throughout Spain, 93,178 real estate sales were registered in November, according to the data released by the College of Property and Mercantile Registrars.
Due to the effects of the pandemic on the national economy, the College of Registrars has offered a preview of the Real Estate Registry Statistics for the fourth quarter of 2021, which reveals that the sale of all types of properties across Valencia grew in November by 16,1%, compared to the same month of the previous year, although the figure is two and a half points lower than the national average (+18.7%).
In total, 13,234 transactions were registered in Valencia, compared to the 11,399 transactions registered in November 2020, a period in which real estate activity was affected by the confinement.
If we make the comparison with November 2019 (the year before the pandemic), the growth is however higher (+28%), exceeding the national average (+25%) by three points, according to the figures from the College of Registrars.
The total data places the Valencian Community in third place in a number of operations behind only Andalusia (19,047) and Catalonia (13,300), surpassing the Community of Madrid by almost 3,500 operations, and with respect to November 2020, all the autonomies present increases except Navarra.
As for mortgages, their behaviour during the month of November is similar in terms of their evolution to that indicated for purchases and sales, although slightly lower.
Thus, the number of total mortgages in the Valencian Community through their registration during the month of November shows a growth of 7.2% in relation to November 2020 and of 12.2% if we compare it with the same month of year 2019.
In any of the cases, the growth is lower than the average registered in all Spain, with all the regions in positive with the exception of the Canary Islands.
In total numbers (5,452 operations), the Valencian Community is fourth after Andalusia, Madrid and Catalonia.
At the national level, it goes from 38,474 mortgages on all types of properties (November 2020) to 47,449 in November 2021.
In reference to mortgages exclusively on homes, Valencia recorded 3,835 transactions compared to 2,999 in November 2019 (+27.9%) and 3,442 in November 2020 (+11.4%). Of these, there were 1,471 in Alicante, 329 in Castellón, and 1,642 in Valencia, concludes the report.

Meanwhile, in Spain as a whole, the sale of homes soared 24.4% year-on-year, to add 49,895 operations in November, its highest figure in this month since 2007, when it exceeded 56,000 transactions.

The year-on-year rise in home sales in November was a consequence of the increase in operations on new homes, which grew by 30.5%, to 10,341 operations, as well as the increase in the sale of used flats by 22.9%, up to 39,554 transactions.
In monthly terms (November 2021 over October of the same year), the sale of homes increased by 7.9%, its greatest advance in a month of November since 2017.
In the first eleven months of last year, the sale of homes accumulated a rise of 34.7%, with increases of 38.4% in operations on new homes and 33.8% in the case of second-hand.
