Traveling with Low Cost Flights
As for flights Low Cost is not far behind. Located just behind Madrid, Barcelona and Malaga, they reached 2 million passengers, increasing by 13.9% their registration in 2015.

The figures that have given rise to this recognition have been 4,195-694 registered passengers and 20,292 flights managed. It is worth noting the incorporation of new routes, such as the one that leads to Milan and Amsterdam. And the incorporation of airlines like Swiss, KLM, Aeroflot or Eurowings among others.
