Flight to Seville

San Pablo Airport in Seville was founded in the year 1914 as an aerodrome where, according to the andalucia web page, the first flight from Europe to Africa took place.

The existing terminal was inaugurated in 1989 and its design, by the architect Rafael Moneo, includes the three main components of Seville culture: The mosque, the palace and the orange trees. Each of them reflected respectively in the vaulted arch concourse, the expansive blue tiled concourse and the grounds.

The airport had its largest expansion in 1992 for the Universal Exhibition when the aircraft parking apron was enlarged and a new terminal and control tower were built. Also a new access road from the national N-IV was finished.

Seville airport is situated approximately ten kilometres north east of the capital city. To get to and out of the airport passengers have various options. If you are moving by car, you just have to take the A4 motorway to Cordoba and Madrid at kilometre 533. Surely you don’t have to worry about the parking because there is space for 2000 cars just opposite to the terminal and prices are fair enough. Taxis and a bus service are available as well.

The passenger service is very complete and includes shops, a coffee, car hire companies, tour operators, banks, VIP lounges, a meeting room, information desks, and a first aid station, among others. Basically you can find everything you need while you wait for a departure or an arrival.

Numerous airlines such as Iberia, Air Europa, British Airways, Air France, SN Brussels Airlines, LTU, Transavia, Spanair, Air Berlin, Vueling and many more have presence in San Pablo airport. The majority of the airport’s traffic is domestic, representing a 75% of the total. There are national flights to Madrid, Barcelona, Arrecife, Bilbao, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Palma de Mallorca, Santiago de Compostela, Tenerife, Valencia and Vigo. In terms of international traffic there are regular flights to Amsterdam, Brussels, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, London, Lisbon, Milan, Munich, and Paris.

According to Aena (Aeropuertos Espanoles y Navegacion Aerea), last year a total of 3,870,600 passengers passed through the airport, 58,565 flight operations were carried out and 11,530 tonnes of cargo were handled.

To conclude, it is obvious that the modern aeronautical facilities Seville’s airport counts with makes it able to meet air traffic demands with the highest safety and quality standards. No doubt flying to and from Seville is a good option.
