Flying can be time-consuming but, if you are in Europe, we have the privilege of the distances being relatively short. The most common Ryanair plane is the Boeing 737-800 and it has a cursing speed of 495mi/h (796km/h or 430kt). That is the approx distance between London and Prague covered in 1h at cruise speed. As well, most of the other airlines will use planes with a very similar cursing speed.

If you are thinking about how to go to Alicante from a far origin the plane will be your quickest way as the city is in the East of Spain. Anyhow, Alicante is a well-connected city so you can travel by road (car, bus, caravan…), plane, ship or train.
