New routes set to open this summer, along with the consolidation of some already operational during high season, offer Andalucians the chance to fly to dozens of of new destinations and encourage more visitors to come to the region.

Low-cost carriers Ryanair and Vueling are the leaders of the new offer.

Twenty-two new destinations are on offer from Malaga-Costa del Sol airport including a direct flight to New York’s JFK entering its sixth operational year at the airport and Delta Airlines estimates that the route will enjoy 80 per cent occupancy in June and July and more than 90 per cent in August.

Among the new European routes are those to several German cities, including Berlin, Munich and Dortmund, as well as Belfast, Brussels, Oslo, Bergen, Copenhagen, London and Cardiff. Combined, Ryanair, Vueling, Aer Lingus and Jetairfly are offering 41 per cent more seats than last year.

Seville’s airport has seen a 14 per cent drop in passengers in the first quarter of 2013 and a total of 670,000 fewer travellers for the whole of 2012 over the previous year. It hopes to turn this around with new routes to Lyon, Geneva and Menorca. Vueling plans to offer 2.5 million seats out of Seville this year.

Almeria airport has set its sights on Scandinavia, with new routes to Billund, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Helsinki, Oslo and Reykjavik.
