The Granada City Hall, the Provincial Council and the Junta have called for an airport, board meeting after easyJet closed its office at Granada Airport.
The low-cost airline’s decision puts the airport’s seven international flights with this company into jeopardy; i.e., Milan, Naples, Berlín, Nantes, Bordeaux, Manchester and London.
The Mayor of Granada, Luis Salvador, admitted that easyJet‘s decision was “bad news” and promised to hold a Mesa del Aeropuerto as soon as possible to find a solution. The Chairman of the Provincial Council describes the decision as “worrying” but calls on all concerned to keep their nerves. “Everybody knows that it has been a hard time for airlines,” he said.
Even the Chairman of the Federación de Hostelería, Gregorio García, was present at the meeting and also described easyJet‘s move as “bad news.” However, he also suggested working on interior tourism and attracting flights from Asturias and Galicia.
Opposition spokesman, Francisco Cuenca, on the other hand, said that the Mayor “doesn’t have a clue” and that he should be contacting the airline directly, as his party had done when the Madrid connection was in danger of being lost.
