Most airlines have been fleeing to Bilbao and Vitoria-Foronda Airport was a bit neglected and abandoned, despite being a most conveniently located airport, either for the Camino and the area. Facilities were much better and substantially safer. The Chamber of Commerce of Bilbao didnŽt allow what was supposed to be the central airport for the Basque region to develop. Fortunately Ryanair is getting it, and will absorb many of the passangers back which had previously escaped. ItŽs bad for Bilbao (they have another front opened in the west with Santander airport and Ryanair operating there) and now the circle closes here.
