The Federico García Lorca Granada-Jaén Airport (GRX) serves the historical and beautiful city of Grenada in the south of Spain. The airport is named for the famed and beloved Spanish poet Federico García Lorca, and 750,000 passengers make their way through the terminal building each year. Situated 20km from Grenada, this conveniently located facility offers five direct destinations to cities in Spain and other major hubs in Europe.
The amenities will cover most transiting passengers’ needs, with ATMs scattered throughout the terminal, public telephones, and free WiFi that you can connect to. Grabbing a bite to eat can be done in the café or the self-service restaurant and bar, with one in the public area and one in the boarding area you can choose to eat on either side of security.
The shopping options here are not extensive, as there is only one major shop. However, this does sell all the favourite duty-free goodies passengers are usually after, such as tobacco, fragrances, alcohol and cosmetics. There is a large meeting room, a playroom for kids, and an information desk where you can find details on the airport and the city.
The carriers Iberia, eayJet, Air Europa, and British Airways all offer departing routes from Grenada.
