Britons wishing to enjoy holidays in Spain on flights to Alicante from Manchester Airport now have even more choice, after one airline added an extra route to its itinerary.
The new easyJet route will launch in September and operate flights to Alicante four times per week throughout the winter months.
Budget airline easyJet anticipates that the new destination will be "particularly popular" for those taking family holidays to Spain and as a mini-break destination, with 60,000 passengers expected to take flights to Spain on the route in its first 12 months.
"Alicante has proven to be a popular destination from other easyJet bases in the UK and now independent travellers from the north-west can take advantage of this new service from our Manchester base, to one of Spain's most popular tourist destinations," Carly Brear, UK commercial manager, said.
A recent study by Ciao Surveys revealed that food is high on the agenda for UK holidaymakers.

A new facial screening technology is to be piloted in airports across the UK in a bid to reduce waiting times for those taking flights to Spain and other countries.
Passengers will be screened with facial recognition technology instead of the usual passport officer checks in a move that is hoped will both improve security and ease congestion.
The scheme will be phased in from this summer and will utilise unmanned clearance gates which scan and match passengers' faces to the record on computer chips in their biometric passports.
Home Office Minister Liam Byrne said: "Britain's border security is now among the toughest in the world and tougher checks do take time, but we don't want long waits.
