Arriving Alicante Airport

Located only 9km from downtown Alicante, the city’s airport is the 6th busiest and largest in the whole of Spain, and taxi cabs from the airport to the heart of the city can be expected to cost as little as $13-$18 for the journey.

The airport becomes incredibly busy during the summer months, although it becomes far quieter out of season, and does not offer the same all-year-round busyness experienced by other Spanish airports, such as Barcelona or Madrid.

Therefore, you can expect lengthy waits during peak tourist season, but a swift journey through the airport at all other times. Many visitors take advantage of Alicante’s hot spring and autumn seasons by visiting the city during these quieter periods.

Car rental options are numerous and tend to move quickly, except in the stipulated busy periods, and there are many bars, restaurants and shopping facilities available for visitors, as well as free wi-fi access for passengers and visitors to the airport.
