DESPITE all of the fears concerning Brexit, Irish Airline Ryanair still expects Spain to be a major tourist hub for the rest of this year and next.
It has indicated that three of its most popular destinations are in Spain are Malaga, Palma and Alicante and earlier this year it had to increase significantly the number of flights to Alicante from Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Liverpool and London Stansted.
The airline had indicated that it has some fears concerning its ability to fly out of the UK following Brexit but it would not have increased flights so dramatically if did not expect to continue have a thriving market there.
As it continues to expand, so new passengers will be carried from different parts of the EU but there can be little doubt that British tourists will still be important to Ryanair.
