Falling prices and a great choice
of property have already attracted many overseas property buyers to Spain. Now,
it’s rarely been easier to reach your holiday home with a number of airlines
launching new routes to the country.

British Airways and Monarch are
among airlines to announce new Spanish routes for summer 2013. Keep reading to

Dozens of new air routes set to make it easier to reach your Spanish

British Airways has announced
that it is set to run 17 flights per week from London Gatwick to Alicante from
March 31st 2013, increasing to 21 flights per week for July, August and
September. The airline has also launched new routes to Barcelona, Palma and the
Canary Islands. Rival Monarch has also launched additional routes to Spain. It
is launching new routes to Ibiza and the Canary Islands as well as flying to
Spain from East Midlands airport.

“These new routes offer Spanish
property owners additional choices when travelling to their foreign homes,”
says Nick Marr from Spanish property specialist Homes Go Fast. “Interest in
Spanish property remains strong thanks to falling prices and the recovering
pound. Now, greater travel options to reach the country can only help property
sales to overseas buyers.”

Marc Pritchard, sales and
marketing manager at Taylor Wimpey Espana, stated: “Spain’s climate,
infrastructure, ease of access to the UK, combined with sandy beaches,
turquoise seas and affordable housing market draws tourists and potential
buyers in their droves.

“Despite falling domestic
real estate prices, overseas demand for Spanish property certainly hasn’t.”

As well as dozens of new air
routes, travel by train from the UK to Spain is also becoming faster. A Place in the Sun reports that you can
now reach Barcelona by a new fast train from London. The new link-up will
reduce the journey time by one and a quarter hours and will also make the Costa
Brava easier to reach.
