Malaga

Jet2.com, a no-frills airline based in Leeds, has been voted the best airline for travelling to Spain by Which? members.

Spain is the most-visited country for Which? members and UK holiday makers in general. Some 14% of Which? members travelled to the country in  the 12 months before the survey.

Best airlines have room for improvement

For the Spanish mainland and Balearics, Jet2.com was ahead of second placed British Airways, followed by EasyJet, Monarch, Thomson, Thomas Cook, BmiBaby and Ryanair.

For the Canary Islands, Jet2.com led the field again, ahead of EasyJet, Monarch, Thomson, Ryanair and Thomas Cook.

However, despite being placed top, the airline achieved customer scores of just 58% for the Spanish mainland and Balearics, and 55% for the Canaries. This is below what many of the top rated airlines for other destinations scored.

Ryanair and Thomas Cook worst rated

The lowest scoring airline for the Spanish mainland and Balearics was Ryanair, on  39%, and for the Canaries was Thomas Cook, on 35%. 

Spain was among 10 destinations included in the survey, along with Portugal, Greece, Turkey, Italy, France. Australia, Canada, and the Caribbean.

The survey also rated 15 long-haul airlines, including Air New Zealand, British Airways, Emirates. Singapore Airlines, Thomas Cook, Thomson, Qantas, and Virgin Atlantic.

Full results for the destinations and the long-haul survey are in the January edition of Which? Travel.
