History

Almeria Airport began to be built in 1966, which was due to the need to ensure efficient transport links with Andalusia. The project to build an air harbor was possible in just two years, and already in February 1968, the first flight was made from this air harbor.

Initially, Almeria Airport was engaged in domestic flights, but later, when the status of an international airport was assigned to the air harbor, the route network was significantly expanded.

In the near future, Almeria International Airport is planned to be expanded, which in turn will provide great attractiveness for air carriers and will lead to the expansion of the route network of the air harbor.

Almeria International Airport has one asphalt runway with a length of 3200 meters and a width of 45 meters, which allows you to freely receive 3-4 class aircraft.

There are several helipads on the territory of the air harbor, which makes it possible to receive all types of helicopters.
