Madrid Barajas

Madrid Barajas flights are operating normally this week even as rescue workers continue to clear rubble from last week's car bomb explosion that destroyed a large portion of a parking garage attached to Terminal 4, which opened in February 2006 and cost approximately $8 billion. The blast, which Spanish officials blamed on the Basque separatist group ETA, injured 26 and left two men missing and feared dead, according to press reports from Madrid. Jan 3, 2007

Madrid Barajas

Madrid Barajas Terminal 4, where Iberia and other oneworld carriers are based, was evacuated shortly after the Dec. 30 explosion that sent a cloud of smoke billowing over the airport. IB was forced to cancel flights for much of the day but was back up to full speed by Dec. 31, according to a statement from the airline. Madrid Mayor Alberto Ruiz Gallardon said at a news conference that workers were searching for the two missing men and the remains of the vehicle that contained the bomb. The Interior Ministry said the vehicle was believed to be a van stolen at gunpoint by ETA operatives in France and that it was packed with 500-800 kg. of explosives.
