Alicante Airport at
Alicante airport is situated 9 kilometres southwest of the capital, in the municipality of Elche, in one of the most dynamic, up and coming business and economic zones on the Mediterranean coast. The essential role played by tourism is reflected in the percentage of international passenger flights that this airport handles and which make up eighty percent of the total. Most of these passengers are from the United Kingdom, Germany and the Netherlands. Scheduled domestic traffic has also increased in recent years. Madrid, Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca are the three most popular destinations.
To update its facilities to meet the demands of greater traffic, in March 2011 the New Terminal Area of the airport was opened.
In 2012, Alicante Airport handled 8,855,441 passengers, 62,468 flight operations and 2,525 tonnes of cargo.
