Airport Information

Valencia Airport

Valencia Airport, also known as Manises Airport, is the tenth-busiest Spanish airport in terms of passengers and second in the region after Alicante. It is situated 8 km west of the city of Valencia, in Manises.

The airport is the main base of Iberia’s regional carrier Air Nostrum. Irish low-cost airline Ryanair used the airport as a hub since 2007 but decided to close it in November 2008 following a dispute over subsidies by the airport authorities. Since then the airline has continued to operate out of Valencia but as a relatively large destination airport, and not a base.

Valencia’s first transatlantic flight, a Delta Air Lines Boeing 757 from New York City’s JFK Airport, landed in June 2009. The route operated every summer until Delta announced in late 2012 that it would withdraw from the Spanish city the following year; the airline attributed its decision to the flight’s poor financial performance and to rising fuel costs.
