Spanair has announced plans to offer European tourists the opportunity to fly further a-field, with a host of new routes setting off to north Africa.
From March 2007, holidaymakers, tourists and travellers will be able to head from Spain to Casablanca, Algiers and Banjul, Gambia.
The routes will take off from the cultural cities of Barcelona and Madrid, as well as the popular tourist destination of Las Palmas
Gonzalo Pascual, Spanair's president, said: "Our objective, apart from strengthening connections with Europe, is to become the main access point to north Africa."
The connections from Spain to north Africa will allow Brits looking to broaden their cultural horizons make simple journeys from mainland Europe to destinations outside of the EU.
Spanair also flies to a host of other destinations around Europe, including Fuerteventura
Around 600 Spanair flights take off daily, jetting passengers to more than 150 destinations and the additional routes announced by Spanair are part and parcel of its plans to offer even more choice to travellers looking to head overseas.
