I can understand the logic in proposing a figure of 1.2 Million here : AENA themselves give a notional figure of 600;000 passengers per year being the number of passengers per year required to see an Airport as being profitable - but where are these passengers actually going to come from ? : Unless the facility attracts significant passenger numbers from Reus or Valencia - maybe even Alicante - then can the province of Castellon sustain an additional 1.2 Million passengers per year ? ... My guess is NO !
