Bilbao Airport, just 9km/6mi north of the city, which we’ve always thought ought to be called Lehendakari Agirre Airport, continues to see passenger and airline numbers rise.

Volotea is a low-cost company based out of Marco Polo Airport in Venice, which we’ve spoken about before, as it has always provided an international connection between Bilbao and its home base.  It also provides connections to three other Spanish cities, Palma de Mallorca, Ibiza, and Seville.

Well, Volotea has just announced that in addition to Malaga, it’s going to start offering flights from Bilbao to Vienna, Malta, and Palermo.

Media from those three cities have published the news.
