Re: A second airport at Madrid

Madrid doesn't need another airport, the one it has works perfectly fine for the city and for the area's population size. When I lived in Madrid I appreciated only needing to go to one airport no matter where I went or what airline I flew; whether it was IB to LAX or FR to TLS.
