Birmingham Airport has recently welcomed another new carrier. Spanish airline, AlbaStar, has launched twice weekly flights between Birmingham and Palma de Mallorca.
The route will be served by a Boeing 737-400 aircraft containing 170 seats and will operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
William Pearson, Birmingham Airport’s Aviation Director, said: “We are very pleased to be welcoming Alba Star – our twelfth new airline in the space of just over a year, to Birmingham Airport.
“Palma de Mallorca is a very well-known and extremely popular holiday destination from Birmingham Airport. When this is combined with the great on board service and very reasonable seat prices AlbaStar and ‘On the Beach’ offer, we are sure this will be a popular route and carrier and we look forward to seeing it flourish at Birmingham Airport.”
Michael Harrington, Managing Director of AlbaStar, said: "We are very pleased to start this new initiative at Birmingham Airport which we now hope becomes the central platform for our UK AlbaStar operations. Birmingham is ideally geographically situated and the airport has an excellent rail link which allows the airport to have an extended catchment area."
