The place has one of the longest runways in Europe, so good luck recruiting some Airbus A380s to check out your airport. Just be aware that the place does need a little TLC, as you’ll need to remove some giant yellow crosses painted on the runway. They’re there to discourage pilots from landing at the airport, as it’s not exactly open for business. The place has seen some flights over the years, but it basically was built during the building boom in Span and since left pretty much vacant.
Bids are being accepted now through December 27, so count up the change and go ahead and make an offer. You’re definitely going to get your money back, as the place is around 125 miles south of Madrid and can probably handle up to 10 million people per year.
As of now it doesn’t seem like there’s one party with big plans for the place, but we’re curious to see what news comes out after the bidding closes down. It might just be a great place for a new low cost carrier to start doing their own thing—just BYOPlanes?
