      My wife and I will be included in that number but not because Alicante is our first choice. We live near Stanstead and travel to Mojacar 6 -7 times a year, trying to avoid peak holiday periods. We would love to use Almeria airport but we need more flights from Stanstead out of peak season. We are prepared to pick visitors up from Almeria but not other airports. This has resulted in fewer visitors and a loss to the local economy.
