Hi, has anyone heard anything about the proposed travel corridor between the uk and Alicante-Elche? I saw a bit about it on the news but nothing anywhere else?

Maybe you mean this story:

Bit of a headline grabber. I can't see how it could work by singling out particular areas.

The bit I saw on Spanish news tonight was the UK wanting to set up a corridor with the Baleares and Canarias. There wasn't much more information than that.

Olive Press is reporting the investigation of a travel corridor between the UK and Benidorm (only).

This publication is becoming my second favourite read, after VIZ, for humour.

How could such a thing work when Benidorm does not have its own airport?   Also, Benidorm has more of a problem than many more parts of the Costa Blanca.   It is just the mayor or Benidorm attempting to grab some headlines.

I must apologise, I thought this was a 'wind up' but actually p it's true. Well, according to The Sun.

The mayor of Benidorm is in negotiations to open a corridor between the UK and Alicante-Elche for those visiting Benidorm. 

Completely ridiculous but you've got to applaud his effort and optimism.

Can’t possibly work how would you track people once landed at Alicante? How would you know if they are going to Benidorm or not. But then again if the sun are reporting this then it must be true 😂
