Valencia airport is situated on the A3 highway which connects Valencia with Madrid, as well as being close to the A7, to Barcelona and into France. It is also well served by public transport. It is connected to Valencia by a regular bus line (MetroBus) which takes 45 minutes, while the shuttle service (Aerobus) to city centre takes only 20 minutes. The metro network (lines 3 and 5) also connect the airport to the city centre (15 minutes), the Railway Station and the Port (fare: € 1,90, winter 2009).

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 row over subsidies by the airport authorities.
