Spanish Government to rename BCN airport "Josep Tarradellas"

Fri Dec 21, 2018 10:16 am

According to Spain's cadena Ser the Spanish government has decided to rename BCN "Josep Tarradellas"

Josep Tarradellas was a Catalan political figure of the 20th century, famous (and much liked by today's Spanish socialist party) for the role he played during the "transition" period after Franco's death.

And most Spanish people will just think of pizza.

But a decent gesture though I suppose it will probably be used colloquially about as much as Adolfo Suárez is used in Madrid, which is to say, not all that much and just continues to be Barajas to everyone.

Better than 'El Prat' which has all kinds of connotations in English....

Yes, Twitter is full of pizza jokes already. The whole thing is a joke. Nobody here asked them to rename the airport. Bottom line: they own it and they do as they please.

What a shame, as bad as naming Madrid Barajas after another politician,i hope we can get rid of our squat useless president and get things straight again.
