The Rock to see a 35% boost in number of weekly flights


Officials are forecasting a record summer for the Gibraltar airport, with a sharp boost in the number of weekly flights meaning increased capacity and greater convenience for passengers.

With the addition of new routes and increased frequency on some existing ones, the airport will see a 35% jump in weekly flights and an over 40% boost in overall seats compared to last summer, according to data released by the government last week.

In the coming months British Airways, easyJet, Monarch Airlines and Air Maroc will all be launching new or additional flights, or changed flight schedules. Overall, Gibraltar will have an additional 13 weekly flights in the months of July, August and September, bringing the total to 50 flights a week.
