Alicante Airport

Established as an airport in the 1960s, the Alicante-Elche Airport (ALC) serves the city of Alicante, and its surrounding region. Because of the popularity of this beautiful stretch of Spanish coastline, better known as the Costa Blanca, this airport is one of the nation’s busiest, seeing well over 10 million people a year.

There is one main terminal building, which was updated as recently as 2011, and this houses a whole host of facilities. You can access ATMs and take out cash in the local currency, or change over your money at one of the bureau de change desks. There are also communication services you can utilise, such as public telephones, and WiFi access (though please be aware only the first 15 minutes are free-of-charge).

You can find a decent range of shops here too, where you can pick up local goods, souvenirs, reading materials, travel accessories, branded fashion items, and a duty-free shops selling confectionary, cosmetics, alcohol and tobacco. You can also find a first aid service, and a pharmacy for any health related needs. If you’re hungry pre- or post-flight, you can duck into the bars and have a drink, pick up a snack at the kiosks, or sit down and relax with a meal in one of the restaurants in the airport.

Fly to Alicante from Australia with airlines like Emirates, Aeroflot, KLM, Singapore Airlines, Qantas, Swiss Air, airberlin, and Iberia.

Travel Information

·         The drive into town is pretty simple, just hop on the N-338 to the N-332. Take the Avenue Oscar Espla, then drive onto the Avenue de la Estacion, and you will come to the centre of the city. The whole journey shouldn’t take more than about 20 minutes, and you can easily rent a car within the airport, or save yourself some time and money and do it in advance with Skyscanner’s car hire search tool.

·         Buses serve the airport, and they run pretty frequently (at 20 minute intervals). The fare is under 4EUR ($5.50) and takes less than half an hour to get into town.

·         Taxis will take a little less time, 15 minutes in light traffic, and you can hail one directly outside the terminal building. This is the most expensive way to travel though, so be prepared to pay 20EUR ($27) for the journey. However, you can also book an airport transfer if you’d like a prepared option for when you arrive, but don’t fancy paying taxi-prices.
