Last Tuesday over 30 business officials from the province’s tourism industry and relevant regional media visited Jerez International Airport’s facilities, including a site tour of the adjacent FTEJerez campus.
The group was lead by Jerez Airport’s General Manager, Mr Rafael de Reyna, and two senior representatives from the local council were amongst the attendees: Mr Francisco Cáliz, Council Delegate Economic Development, and Mr Antonio Real, Council Delegate Tourism, Culture and Festivities.
This initiative was developed by the Jerez Business School, AENA (Spanish Airport Authorities) and the Council’s Tourism department. During the visit, Mr Antonio Real pointed out that “the airport’s forecast for 2012 is very promising, with a 6% passenger increase predicted for summer mainly from the British and German markets” and he also highlighted the various improvements at the airport’s facilities such as the new train station and new road access from which the FTEJerez campus also benefits.
During the visit, Mr Alex Padina, Sales & Marketing Manager at FTEJerez, spoke of the importance to Jerez of FTEJerez as one of Europe’s leading flight training organisations, with the likes of internationally renowned airlines such as BA, Emirates or Qatar, training their cadets locally.
