 It will also allow additional long weekend break opportunities allowing visitors to maximise their stay on the Rock. This is now the second time during our term in office that HM Government of Gibraltar has worked with the airline to deliver more capacity to the Rock. This is a result of our tireless efforts to promote Gibraltar’s tourism industry. At a time when we have announced record numbers of travellers through Gibraltar International Airport, we have no doubt that the business community and the leisure industry will welcome this opportunity for  further growth and consequential benefits to the Rock’s economy.”
