Barcelona welcomes Ryanair, Spain's largest Airline

Source: AFP - Thu 2th Sep 2010

Ryanair yesterday reported how they had overtaken Spanish flag carrier Iberia as the largest airline in Spain in terms of the number of passengers it serviced.

The airline referred to official statistics from Spain's airport authority AENA, which proved how Ryanair in July transported 2.98 million passengers to or from Spain, compared to 2.77 million for Iberia.

The low cost carrier congratulated itself for having "dethroned Iberia as the preferred company in Spain."

The company, which began operating Wednesday from Barcelona's main airport El Prat, said in a statement it planned to add 12 new destinations from Madrid's Barajas airport this year, to reach a total of 44.

Iberia by contrast has said it plans to further cut its domestic offers in order to concentrate on international routes, in particular to Latin America.

Iberia is to merge with British Airways this year to create Europe's second-biggest airline by market value and compete more effectively in the fast-consolidating aviation sector.
