ALMERIA – FINALLY some good news for Almeria Airport. Although Ryanair ceased operating its two international flights from El Alquian last Autumn without any explanation, they have now announced that flights to both Dusseldorf and London will be operating once again from March 27 and 29 respectively.
The flights are to Stansted and Weeze, which is close to Dusseldorf, on the German border with the Netherlands.
Prices will be a little more than what frequent fliers with the company are accustomed to, and prices to London start from €35.99 each way, while a one-way ticket to Germany starts from €45.99.
When Spanair left the airport, others followed, including Andalus Airlines, which went bankrupt, leaving Almeria with just one company connecting to Madrid and Barcelona, and Ryanair ceased flights to Dublin.
Since Ryanair ceased international flights from Almeria, the Tourism board has maintained constant talks with other companies, such as Iberia, Vueling and Air Berlin, in hopes this will bring tourists back to the area.
However, so far, there has been no success, and only Vueling has promised to study the possibility of offering flights from Almeria from this Autumn.
