No more flying to Gibraltar from Spain.

Sky news states:

Iberia is suspending its flights between Madrid and Gibraltar at the end of the week for economic reasons, the Spanish airline says. It will leave the British territory without any air links to Spain. "The last flight will be on September 28," a spokeswoman for the Spanish flag carrier said.

Iberia started daily flights on December 16, 2006. This was followed by British Airways in May 2007, but BA withdrew from the route in September that year due to what it said were operating restictions at both airports. The decision will be a blow to the tripartite talks, as the resumption of the air link between Gibraltar and Spain was seen as a visible symbol of the success of the talks.  The only air links remaining are with British airports, serviced by British airlines.
