I missed the last part of your post concerning the possible sale of Castellon airport, with the projection of a 1,200 job creation scheme. The 200 million price tag seems low, but who cares if 1,200 jobs are created.

It’s just what Valencia needs, it’s biggest white elephant proving the experts from elsewhere wrong.

I would still be surprised if it works, Castellon doesn’t have much going for it apart from growing oranges, tourism and fishing, with the small airport of Valencia and the massive one at Alicante already serving the regions needs.

I thought the price tag seemed exceedingly generous, given that there is no guarantee of attracting enough flights to make the airport profitable. As you point out, people can already fly to Valencia or Alicante. In fact the price tag seems far too high to be genuine – just my opinion, and of course I could be missing something.
