EasyJet set to close Madrid base5 July 2012
Low-fare airline easyJet is proposing to close its Madrid base from winter 2012/13 but will continue to fly to the Spanish city from other bases.
The budget carrier said it was reviewing options for its eight Madrid-based aircraft and 310 crew.
EasyJet said all pilots and cabin crew in Madrid would be offered a job in the airline’s other bases and that it hoped to retain as many staff as possible.
The airline said Madrid was delivering returns below all its other bases and that there were high airport charges.
