Bilbao LEBB

Good Afternoon,

Hoping to fly into Bilbao next weekend via GA. I know it can be a bit expensive, but this will be last “Planned” IFR big trip of 2022.

I just rang Iberia and they’ve said to me that they do no offer the service of handling to small aircraft, nor the basic terminal/ramp minivan service. I stated that Ibiza and Girona offer this. She just repeatedly said “Sorry, Sorry” and I ended the call.

So a couple of questions;

1) Can anyone give any insight to flying here? Gotchas etc?
2) Can anyone ring Iberia a bit later or tomorrow and ask a similar question? https://aip.enaire.es/AIP/contenido_AIP/AD/AD2/LEBB/LE_AD_2_LEBB_en.pdf

I presumed they should offer a service, as per the law?

This is an interesting video on this topic. It also contains info on how wx forecasting has dramatically improved in recent years.
