A total of 5,544 aircraft movements, with 882,347 seats, saw the busiest Monday of the year in the Spanish airport network.

Coinciding with the early August weekend when many inland tourists return home, to be replaced by those who are taking the later weeks of holidays coming to the coast, the airport traffic proved projections of a busy summer.

For the Costa Blanca, Alicante-Elche airport had 277 flight movements, with a total of 46,000 seats available, making it the sixth busiest airport in the AENA network on the day.
