Ryanair the largest low cost airline to Spain’s Costa Del Sol & Costa Blanca will commence flying in July
Michael O’Leary the owner of Ryanair made the announcement this morning live on breakfast TV as he appeared on Great Morning Britain.
The news will be welcoming to expats in Spain and especially those reliant on the tourist industry as the airline will hopefully be bringing with it, thousands of holiday makers.
O’Leary also stated that the airline has enough cash reserves to last a year without flying, despite the fact they have been avoiding refunding customers by way of offering a travel voucher instead which upset many expats across Spain’s Costa’s
Wendy Williamson from Alicante told the RTN after this mornings announcement:
” I don’t care what that man say’s I got fobbed off constantly when attempting a refund and still ended up with a voucher, I simply won’t use that airline again ever, I will use Easyjet or Jet2 in the future”
Although Bar Owner Kevin Davies in Benidorm was delighted to hear the news ” I know they have had bad press, many airlines have but getting them all back in the skies can only benefit Benidorm and all us reliant on travellers”
Down on the Costa del Sol it was also greeted as good and positive news as Stephanie Bootle a barmaid in Torreblanca said : ” It’s great news, we need people feeding Spain and us, although we haven’t been able to open up down here yet, its light at the end of the tunnel”
