Airports in Costa Blanca
Alicante International Airport, located 5.6 miles (9km) southwest of Alicante on the Mediterranean coast, is one of the most popular airports for flights to Spain's coastal resorts. Newly-renovated, the airport can handle up to 20 million passengers each year, so it has no problem with the roughly 10 million who pass through annually.
Most flights to Alicante Airport connect via major Spanish airports in Madrid and Barcelona, and are operated by low-cost carriers like easyJet and Ryanair. The sunny and attractive terminal offers plenty of entertainment options ranging from duty-free shops and tapas bars to internet terminals and photo booths.
The airport is located seven miles (11km) south of Alicante.
