Castellón-Costa Azahar Airport (LEDS)


Benlloch, Spain (ES)
Castellón-Costa Azahar Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto de Castellón-Costa Azahar, Valencian: Aeroport de Castelló), (ICAO: LEDS) is an airport in Vilanova d'Alcolea and Benlloch in Spain. The airport was officially declared "open" by local authorities in March 2011 despite having no airlines signed up to land there, nor government approval to operate. Delayed for several years and at a current cost of €150 million, commercial flights were due to begin on 1 April 2012 but, as of July 2012, there have been none.

The airport has become a symbol of the wasteful spending that has sunk Spain deep into a recession and a banking crisis.
