where is cyprus - not included in Europe,middle east or Asia?

The map is there, where it should be in Europe -
However, the map you were looking at doesn't have Cyprus on it, there is a replacement on its way very shortly. It is one of the bugs we are ironing out in adapting to our new website. Thanks for your interest in our site.

What has happened to this site? Have been using this very useful sit for many years but today I am completely lost....couldn't use the big front screen buttons, could not find Tenerife under T or C for canaries, only by clicking the Europe map and then struggling to put the mouse on the tiny map. Sorry but a great functional website has been compromised at the expensive of style. Please revert back or make fixes!

Many thanks for your loyalty and feedback.
From the homepage, type in 'ten', and that will narrow it down, and link you to
, the page which displays all routes.
If you use
, you will see countries first, then cities / destinations, and Tenerife is listed. due to feedback from yourself and others, I am asking our developers to look into listing these destinations in a single column, as I think four columns is hard to read.
The Europe map does not currently show the Canaries, this is something that I will personally be fixing this week.
The map for
flights to Spain
(and other countries in Europe) replaces a single map we used to show all routes on one, and we accepted that this was far too cluttered. Tenerife is in the inset on
- although there is a glitch meaning the La Palma routes are not shown, and this does make it less clear. We could look into increasing the font size, or making the map pages wider.
Rest assured that we are making changes to the new site on a regular basis, but we do believe that it offers tremendous improvements on the former site, including the ability for users like yourself to give feedback and leave destination comments.
Thankyou again for your patience.

You also make a very good point with regards to searching for flights to the Canary Islands.
It comes down to how we bunch data. For example, if you search for
flights to Milan
, we can bunch together flights to Malpensa, Linate and Bergamo.
We could add this for the Canaries, Crete, etc. We have previously distinguished between the two airports on Tenerife (
briefly served North), but all UK flights go to
.Islands always present a challenge to searching as some go by the name, and others by the chief city - but this is much more of an issue for Lanzarote / Arrecife than it is for Tenerife, as most people head for resorts in the south, not the city of Santa Cruz, which is much closer to North Airport anyway.

Totally disagree with Beverly! I have also been using this site for years, but I love the changes. I think they have really simplified things. Certainly not a case of style over functionality.
ps - I found Tenerife no problem. Keep up the good work guys!

What about Gibraltar?
22 December 2011 at 01:07 |
As mentioned above, Gibraltar will be included on the next map update for Europe.The map itself is already live here -

Julia, I'm glad you like the new look, but rest assured we are not resting on our laurels. Plenty more improvements to follow over the next few weeks, James

I'm struggling with your new site layout. I used to be able to come and find out which airlines flew where from Belfast. Now Belfast isnt even listed as a destination to look at the route maps??? This used to be my 'go to' site for finding out which airline would fly to my destination...now this functionality has disappeared....and I must put in a destination to discover who flies there... Help???

Ruth - our Europe map is essentially just a menu for other maps, which show routes on a country by country basis, including UK domestic and Ireland flights. We did try a single map to cover the whole of Europe - however, feedback was generally negative, essentially because of too much data being crammed into one screen. Also, we work on the basis that most people know roughly where they want to go, so being able to view one country at a time should make it much simpler.
If you click on a route map (eg Czech Republic or Denmark) - and find that Belfast is not there, that is simply because there aren't any flights from either Belfast airport.

Are you sure Hungary is north of Slovakia? Is Slovakia really a neighbor of Croatia's?
29 July 2012 at 14:18 |
No, you are right, not sure how that one slipped through. All of our maps are done by hand, using base templates to start off with, but everything else if from memory. The only other thing I have to refer to is a table of routes (for the route maps), but I don't have any other references, as I like to keep distractions off when doing them. Therefore the mistake is all mine, and this will be corrected forthwith. Thanks for pointing it out!

Hi James, Sorry to be a pedant, but Bulgaria is spelt wrong on the map.
04 October 2012 at 20:00 |
Thankyou, that has been corrected a few weeks ago.

Hi - when I click on the Spain route map it just takes to a page telling me to use a modern browser....I already have Safari on my Mac.......??
20 January 2013 at 11:45 |
Roger, my understanding is that this is due to compatibility issues between Mac products and Flash, which was used to create the map. I will ask our developers if they can do anything to resolve this. The wording could be a bit more helpful, there is nothing "un-modern" about Safari!
