THE airport in Ciudad Real is set to be left with an empty departures lounge after low cost airline Vueling has announced its jumping ship.
From October 29, there will be no more planes taking off from the airport – Spain’s first private capital airport – because of the ‘low profitability of the routes, increased cost of aviation fuel, and the stagnation of the Spanish economy’.
Vueling – the only airline operating from the soon to be defunct airport which opened in 2008 – made the decision after it lost 19.5 million euros in the first half of this year.
Ciudad Real will now join Castellon and Huesca in the ranks of empty airports.
