the area, as orthographic and meteorological conditions in the region made construction difficult. At the time, the only air service to the province of Galicia (Galicia, Spain) was through the Lavacolla Airport (Santiago de Compostela Airport) in Santiago de Compostela, which opened in 1935. During 1964, Aviaco operated a Vigo-A Coruña-Santander (Santander, Cantabria)-San Sebastián-Barcelona line served by Convair 440 (Convair CV-240 family)s. The routing proved to be spectacularly unpopular and unprofitable, and was discontinued after a year of service. A brief attempt in 1971 to run an identical routing was equally unsuccessful. By the end of the 1960s, the airport had begun receiving charter flights from Switzerland and London, England. Gomes was able to convince the Emperor Charles (Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor) to allow and finance a new expedition to find a passage to the Spice Islands (Maluku Islands), this time to the North. A 50-ton caravel, ''La Anunciada'', was built for the purpose. The expedition sailed on September 24, 1524 from A Coruña, with 29 men forming the crew. He arrived in Cuba and later sailed north. Gomes' expedition reached Cabot Strait and Cape Breton (Cape Breton Island) (in today's Nova Scotia province of Canada) in February 1525. As soon as he was able to renewed his search for the passage, and probably thinking that an even Northern passage would not present much better conditions than what he remembered from the Strait of Magellan, he decided to sail South. He passed through Maine, where he thought the estuary of the Penobscot River to be the passage. He entered New York Harbor and the Hudson River (which he named the "San Antonio River"). Gomes returned to Spain on August 21, 1525. WikiPedia:A Coruña Dmoz:Regional Europe Spain Autonomous Communities Galicia A Coruña Commons:Category:A Coruña
