According to Journal Live, Alicante is the most popular destination for holidaymakers from Newcastle and easyJet claims it is fitting to twin the two cities.

Furthermore, she suggested that the partnership could strengthen tourism links between the two destinations and encourage more people to take holidays in Spain.

Crawford Rix, managing director of the airline, said he has seen a strong demand for traditional summer sun destinations.
"The extra capacity will also make bmibaby the largest low cost carrier flying from the Midlands to the Mediterranean and our great low fares mean that people can still afford to get away for a holiday this year," he commented.
When it comes to holidays, nothing is more important to children than a good swimming pool, it has been revealed.

Further results show that 46 per cent of children spend "nearly all" of their holiday in the pool, with 50 per cent saying it is the most important part of their break.
Unsurprisingly, parents cited good value, reputation and comfortable accommodation as the most important part of their holiday.

Mike Whiting, managing editor at Holiday Extras, said that given the recent media attention and protests, it was surprising to see that so many travellers are in support of the expansion.
