Spain’s white elephant airport spents 30 million euros on advertising

The scandal of a “ghost” airport in Spain that has yet to see a single passenger through its terminal has deepened with revelations that 30 million euros has been spent on advertising it.

Castellon airport in Spain’s Valencia region was inaugurated in March last year after an estimated 150 million euros (£130m) was spent on its development.

But not a single aircraft has landed on its runways after the airport failed to secure a license and was unable to attract airlines to add the destination in their routes.

The airport has become a symbol of reckless public spending on ill-thought out projects across Spain that has left the country crippled with debt. A recent report showed that only 11 of Spain’s 48 airports were profitable.
