Ryanair investigation may benefit Castellon and Corvera airports

Ryanair investigation may benefit Castellon and Corvera airports

Following the Ministry of Industry's investigation into the 3 emergency landings made by Ryanair earlier this month at Valencia-Manises airport, the Vice President for the Province of Castellon has been asked to comment on the possibility of this being something that could work in the favour of the privately owned airport.

Relations were already strained between Ryanair and both Valencia, Alicante and Reus airports, aswell as the state operator, AENA, and the recent conflict at Valencia only makes matters worse.

Vice President, José Císcar, confirmed that the decision to fine Ryanair for a breach of saftey regulations is currently with the Ministry of Industry and AENA, and that retaliatory action by Ryanair is possible "We are waiting to see what is decided," he stated.

Up until now Ryanair has been playing a 'wait and see' game with Castellon airport, but the approaching dates of operations for both Corvera and Castellon airports may mean that the state owned airports of Valencia and Alicante are in for a shock.

If the outcome of the investigation is that Ryanair lose their licence to operate in Spain that can't help too much, can it ?

If Ryanair followed the rules on carrying extra fuel for emergencies then there is no case to answer, if not they broke the rules. Simple as that.

I can't decide if this is good news or not. Sure, Corvera and Castellon need a sizeable airline onboard to keep them afloat, but surely Ryanair can not be let off the hook by the Spanish Authorities yet again ?
