History of Alicante Airport

Alicante airport does not have a very long history. It only started in 1964 with the purchase of a piece of land. A long runway of 2,700 meters was immediately built, including taxiways. The ILS installation on the runway did not come until several months later. The final completion was in 1967. Another airport called La Rabassa was closed and the new airport took over all transport. This was both freight traffic and national and international passenger traffic. The first arrival came from Aviaco Convair Metropolitan. The major carrier Iberia only came a few years later with routes to Madrid and Barcelona.

Where many people first flew to Valencia to go to Alicante as final destinations, there was now a more direct connection. It therefore quickly became crowded and a year later there was already a million passengers a year. This meant that a new passenger terminal had to be built. This was put into service a few years later in 1972 for initially only international arrivals. National traffic was only added after the second phase was completed. Later in the 1970s, the terminal had to be reformed again as passenger growth had doubled. Many more parking spaces were also needed and the runway was extended to 3,000 meters.

In the following decades, it was expanded several times due to continuous growth. There were more air bridges, parking spaces, office buildings, etc. Finally, in 2011 a new terminal (New Terminal or N Terminal) with a much larger capacity was built. 20 million passengers per year can be processed here.
