Valencia Airport, also known as Manises Airport, is a small air field by Spanish standards. Despite it having just one terminal, it still manages to process nearly six million passengers every year. Extensive renovations were carried out in 2007 for the hosting of the America’s Cup. It is a modern facility with convenient public transport options into Valencia.
You can find flights to Valencia Airport from many European countries including Geneva, London, Madrid, Rome, Paris, Vienna, Amsterdam, Zurich and Prague. Connections to US airports like New York’s JFK are available seasonally as well.
Valencia is considered a medium-sized airport in Spanish terms, but it feels dwarfed by massive airports like Madrid, from where many incoming passengers originate. Although it isn’t ideal for long stopovers, there are much less pleasant ways to spend an hour or two than relaxing in the airport cafes.
