Sevilla Airport

Sevilla Airport photo

You will find Sevilla Airport about 10 kms north west of this thriving city.

Although Sevilla is the Capital of Andalucia which is home to the Costa Del Sol, Costa De La Luz, Cost Tropical and Costa Almeria, only around 20% of it's passengers traffic is from outside Spain.

Passenger numbers are climbing and in 2005 just over 3.2 million people passed through the airport compared to just 1.8 million back in 1999.

Getting from the Airport into the center of Sevilla is easy and quick. If you catch a taxi the journey will take you around 15 mins and costs between €15 and €22 depending on which time of day you travel. The taxi rank is just outside the terminal building.

Buses the airport and the City Center run every 30 minutes between 0615 and 2300. The journey takes between 20-30 minutes and a single ticket cost €2.30. For more information call 0034 902 210 317.

You could also pre book your own private transfers online through Shuttle Direct.

If you hire a car from the airport you can drive down to Jerez in just under an hour, Marbella on the Costa del Sol in around 3 hours and even Faro in Portugal in around 2½ hours.

Within the arrivals hall there are 42 check in desks and 8 different boarding gates. In total there are seven shops and a couple of cafes at the airport. The largest shop is the Aldeasa shop that sells everthing from cigarettes to perfume.

History

In 1914 the first plane to fly between the peninsula and Morocco landed at the improvised aerodrome in Tablada - created the previous year for an air show - after the Seville town council provided a piece of land of 240,000 square metres to the Military Aviation Service for the construction of an aerodrome. The preparatory works started in 1915 and was used in the same year for pilot training and observers.

In 1919 the first commercial flights between Seville and Madrid were carried out. The following year the airborne postal service between Seville and Larache was established and 1921 saw the first Spanish Seville-Larache commercial flight. In 1923 various facilities, hangers, workshops and offices were inaugurated and the construction was approved for a municipal airport in Tablada on the edge of the airfield of the military aerodrome and measuring 750 by 500 metres.

In April 1927, the Unión Aérea Española (Spanish Airways Union) established the Madrid-Seville-Lisbon route. In February 1929, the Seville airport project was approved and, in March, the Tablada aerodrome opened to air navigation and air traffic although this service would have to stop as soon as the airport project was constructed.

In 1929, the first Madrid-Seville flight took place and in 1930 it was extended to the Canary Islands. In February 1931 the Berlin-Barcelona route included Seville. In December 1933 LAPE started the Seville-Canaries route.

During the Civil War, Seville was the arrival point for African troops whilst Iberia provided air transport services with the Tetuán-Seville-Vitoria, Seville-Salamanca and Seville-Larache-Las Palmas routes.

In September 1945, works began on the transoceanic airport of Seville, constructing runways 05-23, 02-20, and 09-27. One year later, it was registered as a customs point and the 05-23 and 02-20 runways were asphalted. In 1948, a direction finder was installed, the runway lighting completed and the runways were named 04-22, 18-36 and 09-27. In 1956, runway 09-27 was extended with the 18-36 runway becoming a taxiway.

In 1957, the works on the terminal building and the control tower were carried out. Seville airport was included in the Spanish-American Agreement in order to install a supply base. The facilities were placed close to the start of runway 04, taking it out of service.

In 1965, ILS was installed. Between 1971 and 1975 the terminal area was remodelled, extending the parking, constructing a new terminal building and developing and preparing new access routes.

In 1989, with a view to the 1992 Universal EXPO, the platform was extended, a new access route from the N-IV national motorway was constructed as well as a new terminal building and a new control tower to the south of the runway. On 31 July, the new facilities were inaugurated.
