Spanair is a Spanish airline, with its head office in the Spanair Building in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, near Barcelona. It was, until 2009, a subsidiary of Scandinavian Airlines, which now holds slightly under 20% of the company. Spanair provides a scheduled passenger network within Spain and Europe, with an extension to West Africa. Worldwide charters are also flown for tour companies. Its main hub is El Prat Airport in Barcelona, with focus cities at Barajas Airport in Madrid and Son Sant Joan Airport in Palma de Mallorca. The airline has 3,161 employees. On the 25 January 2011 the company was in a "Emergency Financial Situation". The Catalonian government approved a -10.5 million loan plan inorder to save it. Revenue has since improved and the company has been cutting costs, so far it has not required the further injection of -9.5 million lined up by the Government.
