Spanish airports traffic 10 per cent up for Easter

AIRPORTS are expecting 10 per cent more travellers this Easter.

An estimated 8.5 million passengers will pass through Spanish airports as people flock to the country to witness its famous festivals.

A total of 57,029 flights are operating in the period, which is up 9.7 per cent on last year.

Malaga airport alone is operating 3,465 flights during the week which is 15.5 per cent more than in 2010.

Meanwhile those travelling by train are being spoilt with double the number of high speed AVE trains running between Malaga and Madrid.

In addition, the train on the Costa del Sol C-1 line will be operating a non-stop service between Wednesday and Saturday with trains going every 20 minutes, 24 hours a day.

Finally, be careful on the roads with over 14 million cars being expected on the roads.
