Despite European economic woes, Portugal and Germany focus on LCC airports
With much of the world – and especially Europe – still embroiled in recession or economic slowdown and with a lengthy and growing list of failing new airports in Spain (Ciudad Real, Castellon, Lleida, Huesca, Badajoz etc) and failing existing ones in the UK (Plymouth, Coventry, Durham), this would hardly appear to be the time to open or commence construction on a new one, outside of the major metropolitan areas.
But that is exactly what has happened at Beja in Portugal, which has been designated a ‘LCC base’ - and what will happen at Kassel in Germany by 2013.
