I wish Easyjet or Ryanair would hurry-up and launch a Glasgow to Madrid service, both airlines are looking at the route, just waiting for a start date from one of the two.

C'mon!

Beautiful and amazing airport...

With Barajas now the main gateway to Latin America, and soon, Iberia's expansion into the Far East, I won't be surprised if Madrid becomes one of the busiest international airport in the world...

BARAJAS MUCH CLOSER TO FRANKFURT IN 2007

A total of 34.458.775 passengers used Barajas Airport from January 2007 to August 2007, 14,3% more than in 2006.

A total of 36.000.670 passengers used Frankfurt Airport from January 2007 to August 2007, 2,5% more than in 2006.


Do you think Barajas will take Frankfurt? If so, when it will happen?

I visited the new terminal at Barajas last December... what an amazing design... simply stunning. I also visited KLIA last year, and even compared to that, Barajas still impresses me.

Madrid to become Europe's third busiest airport in 2010: agency

MADRID, Nov 19, 2007 (AFP) - Madrid's international airport will become Europe's third busiest in terms of departures in 2010, surpassing London's Heathrow and Amsterdam's Schipol, Europe's air navigation agency Eurocontrol said Monday.

The number of takeoffs from Madrid-Barajas is expected to rise to 255,442 in 2010, a 17.35 percent jump over last year and the biggest increase amongst Europe's ten busiest airports, according to a study presented by the agency.

Paris's Charles de Gaulle airport will remain Europe's busiest airport with over 297,000 departures in 2010 while Frankfurt's Main airport will continue in second place with over 265,000 takeoffs, the study said.

Madrid-Barajas airport opened a fourth terminal in 2006 and doubled the number of runways to four which has attracted a growing number of low-cost carriers.

Barcelona's El Prat airport, which is scheduled to open a fourth terminal in 2009, will experience the second highest rate of growth in departures, reaching 190,739 in 2010, a 16.31 percent increase over last year, the study predicted.

"Madrid and Barcelona have capacity (to grow) but they need to work to make this available," said Eurocontrol director general Victor Aguado, adding new infrastructure was not necessarily needed.

"It means developing operational systems, organizing runways and the control tower," he said.

Spain received 58 million visitors last year, making it the second most visited country in the world after France.

Belgium-based Eurocontrol groups 38 nations and its goal is to manage air traffic growth while maintaining safety and respecting the environment.
