Airlines Rescue Stranded Spanair Passengers

AENA has confirmed that alternative airlines have managed to accommodate 22,266 of the passengers left stranded by the collapse of Spanair on January 28, 29 and 30, according to ThinkSpain.com.

The airport authority said that Vueling had managed to accommodate more passengers than any other airline, issuing new tickets to 9,100 stranded passengers. Iberia took on 5,000, Air Europa 2,600, Lufthansa 500 and Ryanair 5,000.  Israeli airline El-Al, Easyjet and Air Berlin also found seats for 66 passengers among them.

Most of these airlines have introduced a "special rescue fare" for Spanair customers.

AENA announced that passengers who had had to buy another ticket would be able to request a refund on all the taxes paid. Refunds can be requested by sending an e-mail to [email protected] by February 14.
