Budget airline easyJet has announced a partnership with Spanish hotel group Paradores de Turismo de España.
The combination means that the group’s 94 unique properties will now be available to book as air-inclusive short breaks and holidays through the easyJet Holidays website.
Properties on offer range from mountainside estates to coastal retreats, spanning across mainland Spain and the Canary Islands. While many of the buildings are of historic significance, others boast a sleek and contemporary design.
The partnership will allow holidaymakers to get a true taste of Spain, with the property locations allowing them to sample anything from cultural routes, wine trails, spa retreats and golf courses.
Travellers can spend four nights at the 4-star Parador de Vic-Sau, for example, on a room-only basis for £283 per person, including flights from London Gatwick to Barcelona on May 11 2013. This property is set in stunning natural surrounds against the backdrop of the Guillerias mountains.
Just 26km from Madrid, a four-night break at the Parador de Alcalá De Henares is quite an experience.
The newly opened Parador, an imposing 17th Century former Convent/School, on a bed and breakfast basis of £379 per person, represents both quality and value. Flights depart May 19 2013 from Liverpool.
Paul Simmons, easyJet UK Director, said of the partnership: “We are extremely excited to be the first airline to bring Paradores to our customers via this partnership.
“It further strengthens our presence in Spain and is a part of a strategic decision which we’ve actively made to offer even more choice via a well-respected and sought after hospitality brand that is synonymous with Spain.
“The unique characteristics and breadth of variety presented by Spain’s Paradores, fit well with the easyJet philosophy of enabling passengers to make individual travel choices that suit their needs, easily and affordably.”
easyJet flies to 19 Spanish routes from 11 airports across the UK, offering the most comprehensive coverage of any airline to the Spanish mainland and its islands.
