My point is that there is a silent war on at the moment between VGO
. For those not familiar just take a look at a map of Spain and you'll see that they're all very close to each other. IB
will fight the LCC with all it has including political pressure. SCQ
has lost an international flight to LCG
and they're not happy. This flight is used by Spanish migrants from the region who live mainly in the surrey area. LHR
is very convenient for them, a few years ago IB
tried switching this flight to LGW
and The entire community protested and the flight returned to LHR
fears is that IB
might also transfer flights from that airport to LCG
, lets not forget that LCG
is a very important city while SCQ
has only risen because it was declared the capital of Galicia.
I think the great losers in this up coming war are going to be Spanair and Air Europa. Their position in the market is not as consolidated as IB
and the extra competition might just be the straw to break the camel back.
