Alicante-Elche airport continues to set new records with last month’s passenger figures going over a million for the first time ever in May.

1.01 million people used the facilities at El Altet, a rise of just over 4% compared to the same month last year.

The cumulative figure for 2015 so far has 3.6 million passengers travelling to and from the airport, which is 3.8% more than 2014, and therefore set to break last year’s record-breaking total of 10 million.

British travellers accounted for just over 44% of all journeys.

Meanwhile, just over 130 thousand passengers used San Javier airport, a slim rise of just under 1% on a year ago.
