New flights from Norwich airport
[2nd July 2008]
New flights from Norwich airport to Barcelona, Alicante and Palma operated by Spanish airline LTE start this Saturday.
As part of a promotional campaign to launch the new flights tourism bosses from Spain will fly into Norwich airport on Saturday and get a taste of what the Norwich area has to offer.
Travellers from across our catchment area have been delighted to see the launch of three new services to Spain, offering affordable, convenient links to Mediterranean resorts, says Norwich airport MD, Richard Jenner.
The airport can further play its part in our regional economy by bringing inbound travellers here too. Were working closely with VisitNorwich to promote the services among the people of Barcelona, Alicante, Palma and surrounding regions, continues Jenner.
Maria Luisa Moreno, commercial manager for the Mediterranean area for airline LTE says the company is keen to play its part in promoting Norwich and Norfolk to the Spanish. The Spanish want to visit different places, and Norfolk has beautiful, green countryside, says Moreno.
As part of their tour of the area, Spanish tourism officials and journalists will be treated to a city tour of Norwich, lunch at the Maids Mead hotel, a visit to Wroxham Barns and dinner at the Marriott Sprowston Manor hotel.
LTE is a charter and scheduled airline with its headquarters in Palma in Majorca and serves more than 40 destinations around Europe. It operates charter flights for a number of UK tour operators including Thomas Cook Thomson and First Choice.
