Weddings to come onboard easyJet flights?

Passengers on flights to La Manga could soon be able to get married while in the air, if easyJet gets its way.

The budget airline, which flies to Almeria, Murcia and Alicante on the Costa Blanca, has enquired with authorities as to whether its captains will be able to officiate weddings.

If its proposals are accepted, couples will be able to depart the UK as engaged and arrive for their holidays in Spain as husband and wife, eTravel reports.

Advice for holiday drivers

The AA has issued advice to anybody hiring a car in Spain or simply travelling long distances as part of their holidays.

Therefore, the organisation advises planning journeys properly before they take to the road, factoring at least a 15-minute break into journeys of more than three hours.
