Thomas Cook now the only airline offering flights to Almeria from the northwest

Ryanair has scrapped plans to launch flights from Liverpool to Almeria in southern Spain this summer.

The route was set to take off on March 25, but the no-frills airline claims it decided to pull the plug after tourism officials in Almeria refused to accept a cross-promotion deal.

A Ryanair spokesman said: "Ryanair's proposal for a joint promotion that would support our new route to Liverpool has been rejected by the Tourist Board Almeria, who prefers wasting €2.8 million of its marketing budget on an expensive media campaign that does not ensure an increase in tourism."

There are no other airlines offering flights to Almeria from Liverpool this summer, leaving Thomas Cook's flights from Manchester as the only option if you want to travel to the Andalucian hotspot from the northwest.
