Ryan Air departure tax on Spanish airports increased retroactively

Ryan Air increased departure tax on Spanish airports (El Atet Alicante) with retroactive effect

The province was Saturday 30 June 2012 budget adopted in the law. The result is that all airlines are required from 1 July to an increased amount of all passenger departure tax on Spanish airports that have collected a booking after that date.

It seems that the increased departure tax on Spanish airports also with retroactive effect will apply to customers who have booked flights for 2 July 2012 and travel from July 1

In accordance with the General conditions of carriage and of Ryanair (article 4.2.2) we advise passengers that we are forced to charge passengers for possible increased airport departure tax which is imposed by the Spanish Government for all departing flights from Spain who are booked for 2 July 2012 and from 1 July 2012 travel

Once the Spanish authorities confirm whether the increased airport departure tax is applicable retroactively (as described above), Ryanair passengers per e-mail will inform you of the additional costs that apply to their booking made for 2 July. Passengers who do not wish to accept the additional tax will have the option to cancel their flight and to receive a full refund.
