Malaga is no longer the most popular city for holidays in Spain. In December 2010 Malaga lost leadership among urban transit travels in Spain. Malaga, which has one of the largest in Spain international airports, was defeated by Tenerife, which was ahead of Malaga on the number of requests for purchase of tickets on Christmas Eve. Such data is provided by the leading European airline reservation portal Skyscanner.net.
The main air gate of the Costa Del Sol, where tourists can go to such resorts as Marbella, Fuengirola and Torremolinos, now is second after the airport of Tenerife. Provided by Skyscanner.net data suggest that in addition to Tenerife in Europe has also increased demand for flights and holidays in Thailand.
Generally, the period of Christmas and winter holidays surprised many tourist ratings mainly due to a convincing growth of Thailand as one of the most popular destinations for air travel.
