The new route further establishes Jet2.com’s position as Edinburgh’s leading leisure airline, and highlights its commitment to the area following the recent announcement that a record number of passengers flew with the airline from Edinburgh in summer 2010.

Kevin  Brown,  Managing  Director,  of  Edinburgh  Airport,  said,  “We are delighted  that Jet2.com will be strengthening Edinburgh's links with Spain. We  are  working  very  hard  to increase Scotland's links across Europe by working  closely  with  our  airline  partners.   We  welcome Jet2.com's expansion of its operation and destinations from Edinburgh.”

Hot weather, beautiful surroundings and long sandy beaches make Malaga the ideal leisure getaway for a romantic break, family holiday or a sporting adventure. Malaga also offers up a bustling city experience, with great shops, bars and a whole host of restaurants that offer the tapas that Malaga is famous for.
