Reus Barcelona Airport

Reus Barcelona Airport photoReus Airport is around 3kms from the Spanish City of Reus, 13 kms from Tarragona and around 80kms south of Barcelona.

There is also a small kiddies playground area with a slide etc just outside the departures terminal, by the model of an aeroplane.

Its an easy drive up to Barcelona but takes at least an hour and if you are staying right in the center of Barcelona for just a few days I would be tempted to get the bus.

Reus is an airport that has definitely benefited from the introduction of low cost flights from Ryanair and passenger numbers have more than doubled since 1995. In 2004 over 1.1 million passengers passed through Reus Airport.

Rues Airport has two different terminal buildings one is for Reus arrivals and one is for departures. In the Reus Airport departures terminal there is a cafe restaurant and a "duty free" shop that sells everything from newspapers to perfumes and cigarettes.

The Reus Airport arrivals terminal contains a luggage reclaim area with three conveyor belts and the outer arrivals hall area where you will find desks for the various tour operators, the car hire companies and a cafe.

There are three different Reus Airport buses. The first bus runs regularly between Reus Airport and La Pineda, Salou and Cambrils. The second bus runs into Reus City center and the third bus runs from Reus Airport to Barcelona.

Reus Airport taxis cost in the region €20 to Reus City and €22 into Tarragona City. It is possible to organize private Reus Airport Transfers in advance.

History

Reus Airport's roots date back to 1935, when the newly founded Reus Flying Club decided to build a landing strip and acquired land to do so. The following year it was operating with two dirt runways measuring 1,100 by 60 metres and 850 by 25 metres, respectively. During the civil war, the land was also used to install one of the three aerodromes that were based near the city of Reus. The other two were located in Maspujol and Salou.

Following the war, Reus Airport continued to house military facilities on its grounds, although it also opened to civil traffic. In 1952, a compact runway was built measuring 2,200 by 45 metres (replacing the larger of the existing dirt strips), along with a parallel taxiway.

In 1957, Reus opened to domestic air traffic, and the 1960s marked the beginning of generalised charter flights, which meant that the airport was constantly being adapted to the new needs. In 1974, the passenger terminal was built, along with a commercial aircraft apron, which was extended in 1976. The terminal was also enlarged in 1978, 1979 and 1988.

In October 1998, the armed forces abandoned all of the military facilities on the airport grounds, except for a small aircraft apron. Since then, Reus Airport has served civil aviation exclusively. In 2004, with the commencement of low-cost airline operations, traffic levels grew significantly that year, exceeding one million passengers for the first time.
