PLANS for Gibraltar’s new airport are under threat after the mayor of La Linea refused to sell the land for the Spanish side of the terminal.
The PP mayor Alejandro Sanchez has announced plans to sell the land to private investors rather than Aena, the Spanish national airport authority.
The new airport is designed to give passport-free access to both Spanish and British territory.
Spain’s federal government is now considering legal action against La Linea to honour the agreement it has reached with the UK government.
Sanchez claims Aena never asked him to buy the land.
