Ryanair has inaugurated a new route between Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernández Airport and Klagenfurt in Austria. The service is being operated twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays, and means the airport is now linked to two Austrian cities – as Ryanair also offers flights to and from Vienna.
Passengers departing from Alicante-Elche Airport for Klagenfurt on the inaugural flight were treated to a table full of celebratory sweets, accompanied by Soraya Pina, head of the airport’s management office, and representatives of Ryanair and Klagenfurt Airport.
Earlier this year, Ryanair announced a record schedule for Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernández Airport, including nine other new destinations: Belfast, Fez, Frankfurt Hahn, Lodz, Paderborn, Rome-Fiumicino, Santander, Turin and Warsaw.
In general terms, according to airport operator Aena, airlines at Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernández Airport have scheduled a total of 12.2 million seats and around 66,800 commercial operations for the current summer season, which began on 26 March and will continue until 28 October.
