Yesterday we witnessed the agreement between the Valencian Government and the Canadian company SNC LAVALIN at the head office of Tourism at the port of Castellón in order to start operating the new Castellon airport from November 2014.
They have signed a contract of 20 years, expecting approximately 200.000 passengers the first year, growing quickly to 1.200.000 per year within 10 years.
This will mean a boost for the local economy as 1800 new jobs will be created and hopefully an improvement for the tourist sector of the Costa del Azahar. At this stage they did not want to reveal any details about airlines, destination and origin of flights.
We hope to be able to inform you soon, once the company LAVALIN has discussed with the Airline Companies and Tour operators.
