Spanish ghost airport costing 1B euros attracts offer of just 10,000 euros

One of the most infamous chapters of Spain's economic crisis on Friday appeared to be drawing to a farcical conclusion, after a Chinese investor bid just 10,000 euros in an auction to buy the ghost airport of Ciudad Real.

The Chinese group was the only bidder for the vast-but-vacant airport built in the thinly populated Castilla-La Mancha region of southern Spain for a reported 1 billion euros.

Ciudad Real boasts a 4km runway — long enough to handle an Airbus A380m, the world's largest passenger jet — and a terminal building designed to accommodate 10 million customers a year.
