The new Catalan owners of Spainair (SAS had to sell it off due to la crisis to some canny Catalans) have announced that Almería is to be dropped from airports serviced by the airline as part of a cost cutting exercise.
Although Ryanair will be stepping in to fill the gap next month. And, of course, Air Nostrum (motto: safety and comfort are our middle names, right behind “cost cutters”) that all important part of Iberia continues to serve the airport with the same route (and planes?) they’ve been using for the last 20 years.
I suppose that also means they’re out of the bidding for the Almería – Seville route – late last year they were being tipped as “the only contenders”. How things change.
