Alicante Airport have ceased night operations until April 2013
22 December 2012 @ 21:39

 AIRPORT operater Aena has announced that Alicante airport will not handle any routine flights at night during the winter period and that the measure will stay in place until April 2013.

The shutdown, which came into force on Tuesday, will see the airport cease operation from midnight until 06.00 except to handle any delayed flights or emergencies. This means that the new terminal will be all but closed to the public as lighting and other services will be switched off to save money.

An Aena spokesman said that over the winter months there are no nighttime flights programmed so in order to cut costs the terminal will be closed at night.

This closure will also affect staff at the airport and some of them will either lose their jobs or have their hours reduced.
Ever since Ryanair and Air Europa started reducing their operations at the airport it has been haemorrhaging passengers.

This, coupled with the demise of Spanair, has caused a major economic loss to Aena, which refuses to budge over the use of the controversial air-bridges and passengers boarding on foot.

It has been estimated that by the end of the year the airport will have lost around 1.5 million passengers.
