Ryanair and Alicante in discussions over aerobridges

Spain's Alicante Airport Director Santiago Martinez-Cava Arenas stated the airport, AENA and Ryanair are in discussions over the LCCs use of aerobridges at Alicante el Altet Airport (The Moodie Report, 11-Apr-2011). Ryanair has announced it will cut 80% of all services at the airport from Oct-2011 in response to it being required to use new aerobridges, which it estimates will cost EUR2 million p/a. Mr Arenas remains confident of a resolution and added that all airlines are charged EUR30 cents per passenger to use the aerobridges. Ryanair currently accounts for 31% of Alicante’s passenger traffic.
