Seville Airport is the main airport in Seville and the second busiest airport in the Andalusia region after Malaga. The airport handles just over four million passengers every year and although it only has one terminal it does offer plenty for tourists to do whilst waiting for a flight. Originally built in 1915, Seville is one of the oldest airports in Europe that is still open to passengers.
Seville airport has a beautiful design, incorporating the artistic roots of Seville’s culture with the three components that are traditional to that specific area: a mosque, orange trees and a palace. The first things you will see when entering the airport are the orange trees. This is followed by a beautiful vaulted ceiling. It is almost as though you are walking into a work of art, a little piece of history, instead of an airport and many people regal when they first arrive at the beauty of what is around them.
Being such a small airport, Seville Airport only has a single passenger terminal. However, this single terminal is able to service over 4 million passengers every year, which is a considerable amount. The airport only has a single airstrip and a single, parallel running taxi lane, meaning that it cannot handle too many flights in one day. An airport information desk and a tourist information desk are available in the terminal.
Getting To and From the Airport
There is a very good railway system available from Seville Airport, which is used by many tourists every year. You may also want to consider car hire Seville airport. Most of the major car hire companies service the airport and they will be happy to have a car ready and waiting for you on your arrival. There are also busses available to take passengers in and out of Seville itself. However, opting for car rental gives you far greater freedom of movement of course.
