Glasgow Airport secures direct flight to Madrid

Spanish regional airline Air Nostrum confirmed it will introduce non-stop twice weekly flights to Madrid from From Glasgow from Tuesday 1 November 2011.  Currently there are no non-stop flights to the Spanish capital, only via Heathrow, or from Edinburgh.

Air Nostrum is an independent franchisee partner of Iberia.  The route is expected to prove popular with both business and leisure travellers.  A two-class Bombardier CRJ is expected to be used for the flights.

Amanda McMillan, Managing Director of Glasgow Airport, said: “It is important for Glasgow to have regular, direct links with European markets and while the introduction of this service is in part a response to demand from the local business community, Madrid is one of Europe’s most popular city-break destinations and will be a big draw for leisure travellers.” www.iberia.com
