Airport security strikes intensify

Negotiations between unions representing security staff and management at Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernandez Airport have been non-existent, according to the union, with the management so far refusing to even meet to negotiate.

As a result, the strikes are set to continue and even intensify with the schedule of stoppages leading right through the rest of this year, including Christmas, and well into January.

The strikes take place for an hour in the morning and again in the afternoon, and so passengers are encouraged to arrive early to allow extra time to pass through the security system.

The full list of dates are:

October 2023:


November 2023:


December 2023:


January 2024:


Dolores workers are the lowest paid

Dolores has been reported as the municipality where people earn the least in the Alicante province, with an average income of 7,283 euro. Rojales follows, with just over 7 and a half thousand, followed by Formentera del Segura, Holdón de los Frailes, and Algorfa at around 8,000, and workers in San Fulgencio have an income just over 8,800 euro.

If you want to earn more money, then Benimarfull is the place to be, a municipality of just 396 inhabitants that is located in the mountains of Alicante, specifically in the region of El Comtat.

Their average income per person in 2020 was 49,724 euro, according to the Household Income Distribution Atlas, published by the National Institute of Statistics (INE).

Nationally, the richest municipality is Pozuelo, on the outskirts of Madrid, with an average annual income of 80,000 euro, although it is known for being the chosen home for a number of football players.

Torrevieja was the poorest in Spain, being the municipality with the lowest household income in the entire country, but now sees 17,000 average disposable income.

Stabbing investigation in El Altet

Following the death of a man at the weekend in El Altet, the National Police found a significant amount of cocaine and bloody knives in the home where the alleged murder of a man occurred, following the arrest of a suspect.

The victim, a Spanish national, had at least three incisions according to the initial report, one of which in the vicinity of the heart. The victim had managed to make his way to a local petrol station where he collapsed, with medics unable to revive him, despite their attempts at the location.

The alleged perpetrator, a 41-year-old man of Colombian nationality, was arrested, although the court declared the investigation to be secret, following the initial proceedings.

More bike lanes coming

Whilst the government team in Elche is busying themselves closing down bike lanes, their provincial colleagues are doing the opposite, announcing a number of new projects which will benefit municipalities such as Orihuela, Bigastro, Los Montesinos, and just touch Torrevieja.

The Provincial Council has put 11 cycle path projects out to public tender throughout the province and two of them will be built in Orihuela, where the investment exceeds 21,000 euro.

Plane spotting in Alicante

Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernández Airport celebrated the sixth edition of its “Spotter Day” this week, an event organised with the “ALC Spotters” association, bringing together 70 aeronautical photography fans of all ages, in an open day whose objective is to obtain the most beautiful images of the planes that operate at the Costa Blanca airport.

On the day of the event, some 360 flights were scheduled, with some airlines ensuring that aircraft with special liveries served the route in order to get the best publicity through the sharing of the resulting images throughout the aeronautical community.

Tourism projects funding boost

Alfàs del Pi, Benidorm, Calpe, Javea, and Orihuela, are the locations amongst the 22 local entities in the Valencia region that will share 41 and a half million euro of EU funds towards plans to improve sustainable tourism models.

16 and a half million of the overall budget is being shared in the Alicante province on 7 plans that are intended for the promotion of Smart Tourist Destinations and action against climate change.

Energy efficiency in Benidorm

An energy efficiency drive by Benidorm town hall, in conjunction with the Institute for Diversification and Energy Saving (IDAE), has already resulted in a reduction of 2,500 tons of emissions.

The 6-million-euro project, half funded by the EU, has already completed the first two stages of replacing bulbs and infrastructure with energy efficient elements, and as soon as the third and final phase of the work now in progress is completed, Benidorm will have renewed almost 55% of its public lighting, specifically, almost 8,000 of the 14,000 that are operational in the city.

Bank card fraudster arrested

Police in Denia arrested a 50-year-old Spanish woman for the illegitimate use of a bank card owned by a person she was caring for.

The police were notified of the situation by the victim’s son who lives in France but returned to Spain to file the complaint.

The woman had been given the card for legitimate expenses in the care of the victim, but allegedly spent more than 20,000 euro on items which did not fall into the category of care, even continuing to spend two months after the victim had died.
