    First “Hotel Chain” for Bees Launched in Spain

    Climate change and other biodiversity concerns have prompted the inauguration of what is said to be Spain’s first hotel chain for bees. Coinciding with the COP 25 summit in Madrid, the initiative was launched by Turrones Picó, a sweets-producing family business based in Jijona in Alicante province. The town is especially well-known for its world-leading production of soft nougat (Turrón de Jijona – or Torró de Xixona in Valencian).

    Bee&Bee, as the project is known, was set up with the collaboration of the Fundación Amigos de las Abejas (Friends of Bees Foundation) and Instituto Tecnológico Hotelero (Hotel Technology Institute). The first “hotel” (donated by Turrones Picó) was installed at the Hotel Pou de la Neu in Jijona’s nature park.

    The main aim is to draw attention to the danger of bees becoming extinct, which would in turn put agriculture and human food consumption at risk. “More than 75 per cent of food directly depends on the pollination of bees,” warn the promoters of the initiative. “In addition, according to Greenpeace data, in several European countries the populations of these insects has fallen more than 50 per cent. This decline is due to various reasons, but especially standing out are mass deforestation, uncontrolled use of pesticides and lack of safe places where they can make their nests. Bee&Bee wants to raise awareness about this last point.”

    Bee&Bee hotel (Turrones Picó)Adds Ana Picó, in charge of the company’s quality control department, “Without almond trees flowering and without the honey, there would be no nougat, one of our cultural and gastronomic traditions. This is just a small example of how much life can change if we lose the bees.”

    The Hotel Technology Institute joined the initiative because “the hotel sector has the opportunity to make an original, kind and engaging contribution to sustainability in our ecosystem”.

    After more than a decade working on projects to protect bees, the Friends of Bees Foundation, welcomed the support of Turrones Picó and all the hotels that have indicated they are keen to join the initiative because, says volunteer Anscari Fuentes (also president of the Natur Alicante collective), “it is a simple way to raise people’s awareness, and a wake-up call on a topic that requires more visibility”.

    Bee&Bee hotel (Turrones Picó)In addition to Bee&Bee, Turrones Picó has also created a short 3D animation called “Navidades sin turrón” (“Christmas without Nougat”), “a tender story that highlights what can be done for a living being that is so important for the future”.

    Transavia aircraft

    Alicante-Elche Airport welcomed its 14 millionth passenger in November, setting a new annual record one month before the end of 2019. 

    The passenger arrived at the airport on a Transavia flight from Eindhoven on 25 November and, to her surprise, was welcomed by director Laura Navarro and airline representatives at the foot of the Boeing 737-800, where she was presented with various gifts and a pass for the airport’s VIP lounge.

    Alicante-Elche Airport registered a total of 13,981,320 passengers for the whole of 2018, which represented a two per cent increase over the previous year. So far during 2019, the airport has accumulated an increase of eight per cent in the number of travellers, thanks to figures recorded in summer.

    For the official winter season, which began on 27 October and ends on 28 March 28, Alicante-Elche Airport has scheduled 149 direct routes to 23 countries.

    New Summer Routes with Transavia

    Meanwhile, Transavia has announced that it will offer nine destinations from Brussels next summer: Alicante and Ibiza in Spain; Verona in Italy; Corfu, Heraklion and Thessaloniki in Greece; Tel Aviv in Israel; Agadir in Morocco; and Faro in Portugal. Tickets with departure from Brussels can be booked now.

    “We continue to look for opportunities to strengthen our position,” said Transavia commercial director Erik-Jan Gelink. “Our research indicates that there is a gap in the market from Brussels for low-cost leisure travel which Transavia can fill. A significant part of our current customers and our existing B2B customers already come from Belgium and the southern Netherlands. That is why we see starting routes from Brussels as a great step to continue to meet our customers’ needs in Belgium and the Netherlands with a number of fantastic destinations.”

    According to Transavia, Alicante and Ibiza in Spain are especially popular destinations thanks to their “Mediterranean climate, beautiful surroundings, delicious food and stunning beaches”.

    Transavia, part of the Air France KLM Group, is the leading budget airline and second largest airline in terms of size in the Netherlands. The airline has operated scheduled and charter flights to more than 110 destinations, primarily in Europe and northern Africa, for over 50 years. 

    Transavia carries more than 15 million passengers a year and operates with a modern fleet, with flights from six bases in Europe: Netherlands (Amsterdam, Rotterdam/The Hague and Eindhoven) and France (Paris, Nantes and Lyon).

    Sometimes even our best-laid plans come unstuck. Especially at airports, where we have limited control over airline, weather and other general operational delays. 

    Spain’s airports – including Alicante-Elche – are considered among the most efficient and passenger-friendly in Europe. As with any flights, however (anywhere in the world), it is always advisable to be prepared for the unexpected.

    Here are some tips for ensuring your stay at Alicante-Elche Airport is stress-free and comfortable, whether you are just arriving and passing through briefly (with no hold-ups) or find yourself with a couple of extra hours to fill in after the flight home is rescheduled.

    When Departing

    Parking facilities at Alicante-Elche Airport provide express access for passengers being dropped off by a family member or friend, and a range of short and long-stay options if you are returning to the airport after a few days (or longer) and want the convenience of having your car available for the trip home or back to the hotel. 

    For those wanting an even more fast-track service, the first-class facility is located on the fourth floor of the general car park, with independent access to and from the terminal.

    If you or the passenger you are assisting has a disability or mobility problem, the airport is fully compliant with EU regulations in this respect. Make sure you notify your airline company, tour operator or travel agent at least 48 hours before travelling or when purchasing your ticket.

    Once safely through the control area, Alicante-Elche Airport has a range of coffee shops, bars and restaurants for relaxing while you wait for your flight. If there is a delay and you are starting to feel peckish, you can enjoy anything from tapas and baguettes to a more substantial meal of freshly-prepared regional or international cuisine.

    For a truly pampered stay, the Sala Ifach lounge provides the customary VIP services of drinks and refreshments, reading material, a work area and exclusive Wi-Fi connection. 

    Then, if your boarding gate is still not appearing on the screen, a little retail therapy (for souvenirs or personal travel items) at the airport’s diverse range of shops will help pass the time. 

    On Arrival

    If travelling into Alicante-Elche Airport, once through the airside terminal, the luggage reclaim area is on the ground floor. 

    As for transport… seven car hire companies have desks in the arrivals area on the same ground floor: Avis, Centauro, Europcar, Goldcar, Hertz, RecordGo and Sixt.

    Alternatively, there are local and inter-urban bus services departing from level two opposite the departures area.

    Or, if you prefer the convenience of a taxi, the ranks are located outside the arrivals area. The official airport taxi service is assigned to Radio Taxi Elche, identified by a green stripe running the length of the vehicle and the Elche coat of arms on the door.
