Maiden voyage for British airline’s new UK-Almeria flights


A PLANE from British budget airline jet2 carrying passengers from Birmingham airport has landed in Almeria, the first flight of a new route between the two cities.

The charter’s first passengers landed in the province yesterday (Thursday) evening aboard the LS1285 flight.

The airline will inaugurate two additional Almeria links with flights from Belfast and London-Stanstead getting under way on May 5 and May 10, respectively.

The three new connections will mean ‘Costa de Almeria’ is now connected with 10 UK airports including: London-Gatwick, London-Stansted, Bristol, Birmingham, Belfast, Edinburgh, East Midlands, Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle.

The new links are the fruits of a master plan from Almeria´s provincial government to strengthen tourism ties with 11 European countries.

  1. Really good news to see more flights in but I wish we could see a carrier coming in from a midlands airport during the winter months . I am sure these would be taken very quickly as the flights monarch operated during the winter were always well supported .
