Alicante International Airport

Getting around the airport


Alicante-Elche Airport lies 9km south-west of Alicante and, as the gateway to the Cost Blanca, is the sixth busiest airport in Spain. 

In 2011, two old terminals were replaced by just one modernised one, Terminal N. In this large, light-filled area, there are 40 gates split into Areas B and C. Schengen area flights leave from both areas, while non-Schengen flights leave from Area B only.

None before baggage collection
