CASTELLON airport, where no aircraft has ever landed, is up for sale.
Aerocas, in which the regional government has a majority shareholding, is now studying a €200 million offer for the airport.
The prospective buyers will have it operational before the end of June, claimed Carlos Fabra, Aerocas president and secretary general of Castellon’s Chamber of Commerce. He is currently under investigation for alleged money laundering and corruption.
Former president of the Castellon’s Diputacion – which carries out similar functions to a county council – he and the regional president Alberto Fabra share the same surname, but are not related.
Carlos Fabra was the driving force behind Castellon airport, planned to cater for a foreign tourism boom which failed to materialise.
The installation, with an estimated annual upkeep of €35 million, was officially opened in March 2011.
The as yet unnamed group behind the €200 million offer has “great plans for the airport and the economy of Castellon province,” claimed Carlos Fabra.
