The decision comes after further landing fee increases were announced by AENA, the airports authorities.
Ryanair said in a comunique that “Just because AENA is bankrupt, our passengers won’t pay more, and so we can’t bring as many tourists to Spain next year”.
On some routes, Ryanair claims that the increase is double, meaning up to 80% of their current ticket price would be for the landing fee in Spain.
600,000 seats will also be cut from their capacity in Alicante, meaning the loss of 600 jobs.
Other flights to Madrid which will be cancelled are: Almería, Ancona, Bari, Girona, Eindhoven, Faro, Fráncfort, Génova, Londres-Gatwick, Poznan, Estocolmo, Turín & Verona.
Later: Just to clarify, it seems that other UK-Almería flights will continue.
