GA Traffic in Spanish Capital Migrates to Madrid-Barajas Airport

 - May 5, 2013, 12:50 AM

In response to the closure of Madrid Torrejon Airport to general aviation traffic, and the relocation of private aviation operations to Madrid-Barajas Airport, 20 minutes from the city center, Spain-based ground handler Gestair won the tender from the Spanish airport authority to establish a 24-hour FBO at the airport in the executive terminal it will share along with ground services provider Multiservicios Aeroportuarios. The new terminal will feature passenger lounges, meeting rooms and dedicated parking. Along with the move, Air BP announced it has launched fueling services for all general and business aviation traffic at the airport in partnership with Spanish fuel supplier SCLA. “Air BP has a long history of providing products and services to airports across Spain,” said Linda Tames, general aviation manager of Air BP Spain. “We look forward to continuing to serve our customers and building strong relationships with our partners at the new location.”

I fly PA32 light aircraft in the UK and am thinking of flying to Madrid. I understand that handling will be mandatory. Can some advise me as to the costs please? Do you have any nearby GA airports where I may be able to use?
