Ryanair appeal against Alicante airbridge decision

Fri 29th Jul 2011

Following last week's threat to cut operations at Alicante airport, made by Ryanair's Stephen Mcnamara ( Click here to read), it seems that the airline is making one last stance in a bid to get it's own way.

Ryanair is now appealing against the court decision that ruled that disembarking on foot would only be allowed during the quieter winter months, but not over the busy summer periods, and only then at six of the gates used by the airline. AENA's Director of El Altet airport was called to court by Ryanair, contending that tests conducted at the airport were unfair and inaccurate, due to a lack of safety equipment, such as signs and barriers, being present when the tests were conducted.

Aside from the costs involve in being forced to hire air bridges for disembarking passengers, Ryanair claimed that embarking by foot was quicker because two doors could be used at the same time. The longer turn around time also did not comply with the airline's business model and this factor alone had resulted in 313 delays with flights to and from the airport since the new terminal opened in March.
