Irish get ready to party

Freitag, 16 März 2018

St Patrick's Day celebrations will be taking place all along the Costa del Sol next weekend

Irish communities along the Costa del Sol, as in the rest of the world, are gearing up for the biggest party of the year. St Patrick's Day celebrations will be taking place all along the Costa del Sol next weekend and hundreds of gallons of Guinness will be consumed by Irish nationals (plus those who assume the identity for the day) clad in coloured wigs and floppy hats.

Malaga will light up the San Patricio Church with green lights again this year as part of the global event in which dozens of monuments and emblematic sights are illuminated to commemorate the patron of Ireland.

The Irish Association of Spain has organised two events again this year.

Qatar Airways will offer flights between the two cities four times per week with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with a capacity of 280 people

The Qatar Airways flight that will unite Malaga with the capital of Qatar, Doha, will begin to operate from 4 June of this year. It will run four times per week, on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, according to travel agencies who have already processed bookings from several passengers. At the ITB travel fair in Berlin, the Qatari airline announced its plans to include the expansion of its services to 16 new destinations during the 2018-2019 holiday season.

Travel agencies have announced that they are already receiving booking from customers keen to visit the Gulf state. This new transport link is due to make a huge difference for travel between the Costa del Sol and Qatar, as there is currently no direct route between the two.

The major event in Berlin is providing an opportunity to build loyalty in the Germany market against stronger competition from the eastern Mediterranean

The ITB travel fair started in Berlin on Wednesday and runs until this Sunday, 11 March. The exhibition is one of the biggest in the world for the travel trade and each year provides an opportunity to focus on the German visitor market to Andalucía, including Malaga and the Costa del Sol. Tourists from Germany are the second biggest visitor group to southern Spain after the British.

Predictions from delegates representing local destinations on the first two days of the fair were of a rise in the number of German visitors for this coming season. Those attending were urging caution however, now that rival destinations to Spain, including Turkey, Greece and Egypt, are enjoying a recovery in demand after a recent slump driven by economic uncertainty and potential unrest from terrorism. These eastern Mediterranean competitors have traditionally attracted a lot of Germans.


The national airport operator has awarded the contract to Comsa and work will be carried out over twenty months

Aena, the national airport operator, will shortly start investing 6.2 million euros in renovating Terminal 2 of Malaga Airport. The terminal is the older building, where Ryanair and Easyjet check-in desks are located.

The contract have been awarded to contractors Comsa, who have explained that the works are designed to modernise the Pablo Ruiz Picasso Terminal and update the decoration to match the newer Terminal 3 (T3) next door.
