Alicante, Spain (ES)
Alicante-Elche Airport lies 9km south-west of Alicante and, as the gateway to the Costa 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.
There is no train into Alicante from the airport, but the bus is convenient.
The bus line C6 takes you to Alicante every 20 minutes. The journey takes 30 minutes to Puerta del Mar. If you'd like to go Elche, take the bus line 1A which runs between the airport and the centre of Elche with stops in Torrellano.
Cost: EUR 3.85 for bus line C6 or EUR 1.50 for bus line 1A (note that drivers don't accept notes bigger than EUR 10 for single fares)
Location: Main Terminal, departures, level 2
