Ryanair has just reached an agreement to begin operating services from the infamous Valencian airport.
Up until now, the facility, which was built by the former head of the provincial authority Carlos Fabra, (later jailed for tax fraud), had been regarded as a white elephant, and a stark reminder of the wasteful government spending in the construction boom before the financial crisis.
The airport was finally opened in 2011 after the regional government picked up the €170-million tab which was intended for the private sector; however, it remained closed to the public until 2014 and allowed only private aircraft and football team charters to use it.
Ryanair say they will be making a public announcement next week.
