do I need a second airport in Madrid?

The minister of Promotion, José Luis Abalos, has confirmed this morning that the future second airport of Madrid is an initiative “very timely”, which is still under study by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and the competent authorities, under the department over which you preside.

The minister has confirmed that the creation of this second airfield at 30 kilometres from the capital would not affect the strategic plan that the manager airport semi-Aena has been designed for the real estate development and logistics in the airport Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas.

the extension of The aerodrome of Casarrubios-The Alamo is a private initiative whose interests, in spite of to provide a real estate development featured in an advanced phase of the plan, are not contradictory, as stated by the private company driving. “There is indeed a strategic development plan and two building plans a lot of consideration in Barajas and El Prat, but I don’t think that affects, has dismissed Abalos during his intervention in the Breakfast news of Europe Pres.

“Until where I know, this project, to horse between two autonomous communities, would be designed for low cost and as a different alternative (Barajas),” said Abalos. And is that the possible future second airport of Madrid intends to focus its activity in the low-cost airlines, the traffic executive and the load.

however, the minister has stressed that this plan, no history to be private, should be studied “not only for its construction, but also for everything that has to do with the management”. Referred as well, according to sources in the Ministry, to the possible impacts with the air traffic of both Decks as Torrejón.

“The area of Madrid is complicated, with four airports, one above the other”, explained from the Union of Air traffic Controllers (Usca) in relation to Decks, Four Winds, Torrejón and Getafe. However, with the exception of some civil flight in the last, the other two airfields are concentrating their activity to the executive aviation and the military, respectively.

The driver of approximation Daniel Zamit agrees that this project may pose “an improvement on the traffic executive”, that is to say, to the private jets that are also Casarrubios-The Alamo intends to focus its activity. But “non-operationally” in terms of commercial flights: “it Would be a source of permanent conflict” because “the terminal area of Madrid”, which is the approach area to the airport of Barajas has “important requirements and 50 kilometres of distance.”

For the veteran driver would be a “conflict on all arrivals to Barajas in settings north and in the outputs configuration-south”. He claims that “the entire sequence of planes coming in from the west to Madrid, that is to say, the flights ocean and those from Galicia and Lisbon,” enter the zone that you would be the new airport. Them sum, in addition, some flights to and from Europe, whose entrance diverted to the area to the west.

Zamit he gives as an example of the complication by closeness to what is happening with the airports of Santiago de Compostela and La Coruña, “even though the distance is greater”, he explains. In addition, it discards that would increase air capacity: “There would be more air traffic, as that of 50 aircraft, half an hour there on deck if it materializes this second airport would come in 42”. Considers that there would be “a redesign different”.

however, the drivers of the project’s second commercial airport will ensure that their preliminary studies belie this possible condition and ensure that low cost companies could expansirse thanks to the new airport. The issue is expected until the first quarter of 2019, is in the hands of Civil Aviation.
