Cheaper To Fly Birmingham To Newcastle (via Alicante) Than To Take The Train!

However, he decided to travel via Alicante on his way to Newcastle due to the fact it worked out far cheaper than simply heading to Newcastle on the train! Mr. Horton elected to fly with Ryanair as flights for a trip to Alicante-Elche Airport and then returning to Newcastle proved to be cheaper than rail tickets from his hometown of Wolverhampton to the Tyneside city. The distance from Wolverhampton to Newcastle is just over 200 miles, but although Mr. Horton’s route was around 3,000 miles, it worked out cheaper, as a return train ticket from Wolverhampton to Newcastle would have cost around £114 according to train booking sites. However, a flight from Birmingham to Alicante with Ryanair is estimated to have cost £30, with £15 return flights from the Costa Blanca to the UK.
