The future of Cordoba airport

Rafael Rodríguez, who is the current councillor for Commerce and Tourism on the costa del sol, considers it necessary for Cordoba airport to “search for its own uses and to have its own uses”. He believes that this airport needs to be re-launched since it is a big responsibility to make it work and be operative, after having invested 100 million euros.

He added that all the different authorities must try to analyse what will the real long term role of Cordoba airport will be, being an hour away from Malaga airport and less than an hour away from Seville airport, and on top of that, being placed in a town that already has high velocity train line.

In the opinion of Mr Rodriguez, “we have to search for what will be the market and what will make Cordoba airport unique, and in which ways it might become a complement to the airports at Malaga and Seville”, being the ones that receive the most non transfer flights in Andalucía. The councillor has  said that in order to create an action plan for the airport it must be determined which air traffic needs to be searched for and what markets need to be the focus.

That is why the councillor, who believes that it is the “right moment to work together to identify our objectives” in this matter, insisted that “taking into account the communications, we must analyse the potential of Córdoba airport, its assets to become competitive and what sort of air traffic it can attract”. He added that “we cannot resign ourselves to the fact that an inversion such as 100 million euros will only be used to allow organ transplant services
 planes to land, or private planes” the UI councillor pointed out.

He also stated that Cordoba town council has given approval to become part of the airport board. “It was absurd to decide not to be part of the board back in its day”. Rafael Rodríguez pointed out weeks ago that the town council decision was “reasonable” because “there was no sense nor logic for PP, practicing an absurd mode of sectarianism, would choose to be away from a board that only attempts to contribute to the improvement of the air connections and therefore, the economy of the province and the town”. In this sense, he insisted that “what made no sense and had no justification whatsoever was for the town council, which should be the main party interested in the airport having more activity, non transfer flights and passengers would not be in the main forum that was working towards this end”.
