And it is in the Scandinavian countries, where in the past few days the area of Costa del Sol is actively promoted by Spanish tourist officials.
For example, recently the representatives of Costa del Sol at the meeting with tour operators of Scandinavian countries reported that the number of direct flights from Malaga Airport to Stockholm, Helsinki, Oslo, Copenhagen and other major cities will increase to 100 flights.
