Sevilla in bid to become air travel hub

News sevilla airport

THE Sevillian government is in talks with Turkish Airlines to re-establish an air link between the city and Istanbul.

The move comes as the government looks to increase the number of flights into and out of its airport, following a 15% year on year decline in June and July 2013.

Employment minister Gregorio Serrano is also keen to establish the airport as a hub for tourists from Asia.

Speaking at a conference, he said: “Around 80,000 tourists from Japan alone visit Seville every year, and there is currently no direct link between the country and our city.

“Establishing a direct route from key Asian hubs into Seville would benefit all visitors and provide a huge boost to our city.”
