THIS summer, Málaga’s airport will welcome 94,000 flights operated by 53 airlines from 136 destinations, nine more than last year. Airports operator Aena says it expects that, between March 25 and October 27, the volume of seats will be up 4.7 per cent while there will be 5.8 per cent more scheduled flights compared with the 2017 season.

There will be 207 routes operating from other European airports plus 30 domestic services, while the number of seats from North America is anticipated to rise by 13.5 per cent and those from Africa by 40 per cent. A raft of new services begins today, Thursday, with daily direct flights to New York operated by Delta Air Lines restarting, and regular flights to Doha operated by Qatar Airways scheduled to take off in June.
