Airports in Valencia

Valencia Airport (VLC)

Overview

A short drive west of the city centre the humble Valencia, or Manises, Airport now handles five to six million passengers annually.

The airport is well connected to airports across Europe and the public transport options to and from the airport are convenient and efficient. Most flights to Valencia tend to originate from the much larger Madrid and Barcelona airports. Valencia Airport is open 24 hours and offers a modest number of shops and cafés to pass the time in while waiting to board your flight.

Location

Valencia Airport is just six miles (9km) from the city centre.
