Ryanair to Reduce Flights to Alicante

8th April 2011

From October 2011, Ryanair will be cutting 9 of its 11 planes at Alicante Airport following a decision by the owner of Alicante Airport the Aena, to introduce air bridges, also known as passenger boarding bridges to all services.

At present, Ryanair use stairs which is a cost effective way of getting passengers both on and off an aircraft, also allowing both the front and rear exits to be used. Ryanair boss Michael O Leary has claimed that the move would have added €2 million in costs each year for the airline.

A total of 31 routes will be cut, with some services being reduced, and some completely cancelled. Do you use Ryanair to fly to Alicante? Would you rather travel to another airport, or will this put you off travelling to Spain?

    This would neither stop me travelling to Alicante or Spain, there are still alternative carriers and airports.
    And what’s the need to board in a hurry by the way?
    We managed before Ryanair, and will manage again after they have gone.

    I have used the air bridges for short haul flights and it does make boarding a lot longer and not efficent. If Ryanir stop flying to Alicante i will aslo have to stop.
