Valencia Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto de Valencia) (Valencian: Aeroport de València) (IATA: VLC, ICAO: LEVC), also known as Manises Airport, is the tenth-busiest Spanish airport in terms of passengers[3] and second in the region after Alicante. It is situated 8 km (5.0 mi) west[2] of the city of Valencia, in Manises. The airport has flight connections to about 20 European countries and 8.53 million passengers passed through the airport in 2019.[1]

History

Valencia's first transatlantic flight, a Delta Air Lines Boeing 757 from New York City's JFK Airport, landed in June 2009.[4][5] The route operated every summer until Delta announced in late 2012 that it would withdraw from the Spanish city the following year; the airline attributed its decision to the flight's poor financial performance and to rising fuel costs.[6]

A new regional terminal, expanded car parking facilities and apron area have been recently constructed in time for the 2007 America's Cup. The runway has been also lengthened by 50 m (160 ft). The airport has one terminal and one runway. The former runway 04/22 is not in use and has no ILS but has a helipad at the southwestern end.

It is the main base of Iberia's regional carrier Air Nostrum. Irish low-cost airline Ryanair used the airport as a hub since 2007 but decided to close it in November 2008 following a dispute over subsidies by the airport authorities.[7] Since then the airline has continued to operate out of Valencia but as a relatively large destination airport, and not a base.
