Change of name for Spain's Alicante Airport

Change of name for Spain's Alicante Airport

The Spanish State Gazette (BOE) today formally announced how Spain's Airports Authority - AENA - has changed the name of Alicante Airport.

In Bolletin reference number FOM/1316/2013 dated 12th July, AENA stated how Alicante El-Altet Airport will no be referred to as "Alicante-Elche Airport".

The change has come as the result of a direct request from the Mayor of the City of Elche, made in October 2nd last year.

The new name of the airport now falls in line with that of other European Airports, whereby the facility bears the name of the Host Town or City as well as the more commonly known destination.

... no doubt at a cost of Millions and all to pander to the ego of some whingeing Alcalde !

To be fair I think that the Mayor of Elche has shown a reasonable amount of restraint here - normally any Spanish politician representing a village of more than 6 Residents demands their own dedicated airport anyway. Huesca, Bajajoz or Castellon airport anybody... ?

If I were the President of AENA I would love to take the piss out of President Valcarcel and change it to "Alicante-Murcia".... this still abides the 'European norm'...
