Spain mulls changing airline routes to offset fuel costs

20 July 2008

Spain is considering changing commercial airline routes to make them shorter and more direct in order to offset high fuel prices, Public Works minister Magdalena Alvarez said Saturday.

Alvarez said she would ask the defence ministry to alter airspace currently reserved for military use in order to make this possible.

“‘If the problem is the rise in fuel prices, the best measure to support airlines is to study how to reduce fuel consumption,'” the minister told reporters in the southern port of Malaga.
