WORK has begun to try to establish the first direct air connection between the United States and the Alicante-Elche airport.

Speaking at Madrid’s Fitur tourism fair on Wednesday, Alicante Provincial Council president Carlos Mazón said getting the new route would be a big tourism goal by 2023.

Mazon said the council was talking with tour operators, travel agencies and tourism associations, as well as airport operator Aena, to set up a transatlantic service.

“We have decided to go directly to the North American market, because there is still no direct link between the United States and the Costa Blanca and we are going to work to achieve it,” said Mazón.

“The North American public knows that Alicante provides great quality in its services with a base port for cruise ships; one of the best archaeological museums in the world in the world; residential and language tourism for students; as well as a favorite enclave for the British and other Europeans,” he added.

Mazón affirmed that the great potential market of the Costa Blanca is the American tourist whom ‘we want to attract with professionalism, work and a lot of effort’.

Getting a US air link, of course, works both ways and would allow people in the region to enjoy an American break without having to travel to Barcelona or Madrid airports.

Looking ahead to 2023 as a whole, Mazon relished what was to come with local tourist bookings and flight levels set to make a full recovery post-Covid pandemic.
