**News Update** Alicante-Elche Airport introduces six new routes to these locations: Reykjavík, Lyon, Stuttgart, Pardubice, Marseille and Bodo. This will make Alicante-Elche one of the top-five busiest airports in Spain.

Around a 15-minute drive from the attractions of the city, Alicante-Elche Airport is the gateway to Alicante and the surrounding area.

The airport was originally known as El Altet when it was opened in Elche in 1967. Since then it has grown into one of Spain’s major airports, as well as a hub for low-cost airlines in Europe.

Just 10 kilometres outside the city centre, the airport is not only ideal for visitors to Alicante but also serves Valencia, Murcia and the Costa Blanca. It is based close to the A7 motorway, thus providing excellent transport links for travelling in all directions.

The airport is conveniently reached by taxi, bus or private car. Long-term parking is available if required.

Terminal N opened in 2011. Six times larger than the combined size of the original Terminals 1 and 2, Terminal N has enabled Alicante-Elche Airport to grow to the extent that (in 2018) it served just under 14 million passengers. This places it as the fifth largest in Spain, and one of the 50 busiest airports in Europe.

The same as with other major airports in Spain, Alicante-Elche is operated by Aena Aeropuertos S.A. Many of the most popular airlines including British Aiways, Ryanair, EasyJet, Jet2.com and Norwegian arrive at and depart from here.

Whether you are travelling for business or pleasure, the airport is ideal for your requirements and preferences. There is a good selection of restaurants, bars, fast food outlets and other establishments to keep everyone happy.

Additionally, the airport has a VIP Lounge with Wi-Fi, TV, comfortable seating, catering and a children’s area, available for business class travellers from associated airlines as well as passengers who choose to buy a pass.
