Airline may reduce routes flying to Alicante airport

Wed 9th Mar 2011

Alicante airport's new terminal has been the centre of problems between Ryanair and AENA, and the budget airline has threatened to reduce the number of flights servicing the region if the issues are not resolved.

The main cause fro concern is over the design of the new terminal, which does not allow for direct access for passengers to board the planes, and therefore means the airlines will have to meet the cost of installing a passenger boarding bridge themselves. Ryanair say they if this is the case they will have no option but to uncrease the ticket costs.

Ryanair CEO, Michael O'Leary, confirmed that there is a ‘situation of dispute' with AENA.

As of July the airline will fly 57 routes into Alicante, however, this may be reduced from October if the problems with AENA are unresolved.

Earlier on this year both Monarch and Jet2 airlines both announced additional routes would fly to the airport.
