Getting to Alicante Airport

Alicante is one of the major gateways to the southern region of the famous Costa Blanca, which lies on the Mediterranean coast. Many of the nine million passengers who pass through the airport each year come to visit the glorious golden beaches of the area. Alicante Airport is the sixth busiest in Spain, and is located only 9 km from Alicante. It is also only 10 km from Elche, another popular tourist region. To the north-east of the airport lies Busot, El Campello and San Vincente, while Santa Pola and Guardamar del Segura are found to the south. In the west lies Aspe, Monforte Del Cid, Rebolleco and Novelda. These are all interesting areas within easy reach of Alicante.

Driving to the airport is relatively easy, as it is surrounding by a few major roads. These include the N-325, N-330, N-332, N-340, as well as the main A7 highway. The Autovia del Mediterraneo is another important road which joins the N-338 on the northern side. The N-332 is found on the eastern side of the airport, while the N-340 and Avinguda de Illice run in a north-easterly/north-westerly direction. Passenger traveling in their own vehicle will find plenty of parking at the airport, and should follow the directions mentioned below.

Driving to the airport from the north:

The A7 in a southerly direction should be taken when driving from the north, and the exit point from this highway is Exit 72. Exit 72 leads onto Carretera Al Aeropuerto, and then on to Alicante Airport. Watch for signs that indicate the airport.

Driving to the airport from the south:

From the south, motorists should travel on the A7 until reaching the Exit 72 (the A7 comes in from the south-west). From here you will continue to the airport. A second option when traveling from the south would be to take the N-332 in a northerly direction. From the N-332 turn onto the N-338 and head for the airport.

Driving to the airport from the east:

The coastal roads of the N-340/N-332 should be used to reach the airport from areas located to the east. Head south-west on the N-340, and then turn right onto the N-338, which will lead you to the airport. Keep a look-out for signage that will also help you to find your way.

Driving to the airport from the west:

Motorists will take the N-330 which heads for Alicante from the west. Join the A7 at Junction 71 and travel south until reaching Exit 72. From here you will head directly for Alicante Airport.

Passengers should allow plenty of time for their trip to the airport as all the roads mentioned above can become busy during peak hours or during holiday periods. Ensure that you have enough time to get through traffic, find parking at the airport and complete all the check-in and security procedures before your departure flight.

If you do not wish to drive your own vehicle to the airport, you could make use of the bus or taxi services available. At present, there is no train station at the airport. Therefore, if you are arriving at Alicante Central Train Station, or the Alicante Narrow Gauge Railway Station, you will need to take a bus to the airport. The Line C-6 bus travels frequently to Alicante Airport from both these locations, as well as from the main bus station in downtown Alicante. Other bus services are available from further afield towns and cities, such as Benidorm and Denia. Taxis can be hailed from the street, arranged to come and fetch you at your location, or found at all the major railway, bus and public areas within Alicante. It is more cost effective to use the bus services, but you may also like the convenience and privacy of a taxi journey. It is a matter of personal preference and budget.

The airport consists of two terminal buildings which are well equipped for the needs of arriving and departing passengers. There are currency exchange services, a post office, cash machines and many restaurants, cafes, bars and shopping outlets available. The airport also has a VIP Lounge for business passengers which offer various general business services. The airport is managed by Aena, which also ensures that it is accessible for disabled passengers, or passengers with reduced mobility. Lifts are available for reaching the upper levels of the airport, and pavement ramps facilitate movement in and out of the airport building. There are wheelchairs which can be used at the airport, disabled toilet facilities and telephones which can be accessed by wheelchair bound passengers. Further assistance at the airport can be arranged through your airline carrier. Arrangements for assistance should be made at least 48 hours in advance of your departure flight.

General enquiries can be made at the information desks located within the check-in area, as well as in the departures area.
