Increase in private jet traffic at Malaga airport in August

Luxury tourism in Marbella and the Costa del Sol this August is experiencing one of its best summers.

The luxury hotels in Marbella are also in good health this year, while at Malaga airport there has been an increase of 20 percent of private jet arrivals.

And responsible for this data is that this sector of foreign tourism has increased nearly 30 percent, making up for the same national market decline this summer. The results can be seen in the dynamics of the arrivals of Arabs and Russians, although the sum of British and German is still almost half of the total.

Malaga airport thus has presented these last days of August a marked increase in the operations of private jets, up to 20 percent more than the same period a year ago. In the second week of August last year were recorded at the airport in Malaga flight operations of 200 private jets, while this year the number has risen to about 240. Of the 372 flights that took place on last Sunday, 40 were jets, more than 10 percent.
