Of course, it has only been made possible because of the tremendous take-up of Ryanair’s flights to Alicante and Palma by local people. Passengers are showing they’re backing our airport and Ryanair is paying back their commitment in spades. Even before the first flight has taken off, Ryanair has listened to what people have been crying out for and doubled its routes to give them a much-needed break. We’ve been working hard over the past few months to transform our terminal, get it fit for the 21st century and make it easier and smoother than ever to pass through. We can’t wait to welcome people back through our doors for these great summer breaks – and our growing slate of other domestic and international flights.”
