It will also allow additional long weekend break opportunities in Gibraltar by allowing visitors to maximise their stay on the Rock. This is now the second time during our term of office that Her Majesty's Government of Gibraltar has worked with the airline to deliver more capacity to the Rock.

At a time when we have announced records numbers travelling through Gibraltar International Airport, we have no doubt that the business community and the leisure industry will welcome this opportunity for further growth and consequential benefits to the Rock’s economy.”
