Airports near Alicante, nearest airport to Alicante

edited September 2011 in - Spain and Portugal
Hello travellers, we are meeting some people in Alicante in a few weeks and will fly there. What is the nearest airport to Alicante? Is it Barcelona or Madrid? We are only going for a few days so it would be convenient if the airport was as close as possible to the resorts. Please help, which airports are near Alicante? Thank you. M.

    Both Airports Madrid & Barcelona take 1 hours flight from Alicante airport! There seems to be cheaper offers going to Madrid though, from Alicante, try Ryanair Alicante to Madrid!
    Alicante has a huge new airport now.

    The nearest airport is Alicante airport, 8km from the city, and the gateway to the Costa Blanca resorts. It is a big airport, handles 10 million passengers a year, and was modernised in 2011 so it's a pleasant facility to use. You fly direct from the UK on easyJet and Ryanair, both of which have bases here.
