Alicante–Elche Airport Reviews

★★★★☆
Alicante airport is by far the best Spanish airport by far I have been to. A lot better than Malaga and Madrid! Very big, but can be easily navigate around the airport. The only draw back about ALC is car rental. It's not that clearly signed where it is. and also it's quite a trek from one side of the airport to the other. But all in all, a good airport!
- Thomas Potter

★★★★☆
Sited almost at the edge of a motorway, the new terminal building is easily accessed. Can be a bit difficult finding the bus stop areas where you meet the off airport car rental companies. Large selection of retail outlets and eateries past security. Security don't bother to tell travellers to remove laptops until the bags are in the unit, causing unnecessary delays. Airport lounge is comfortable, but food choice limited.
- Mark Burningham

★★★★☆
Very good airport for shopping,plane spotting inside the terminal and for eating.Check in was average.Security was Good and average.Also at the airport is a great bar for watching sports games before you fly.Recommend this airport if you want to go to Benidorm.
- Máni Kárason

★★★★☆
Al aeropuerto de Alicante es un buen aeropuerto español. Tiene buenos servicios de restauración y toda clase de tiendas donde entretenerse a comprar. El personal del aeropuerto es general amable. Solamente a la hora de hacer los embarques suele haber retrasos, no hay buena organización. Pero en general bien.
- Antoni P Cegarra

★★★★☆
Free WiFi for only 30 minutes, pay thereafter (and a convoluted registration process to get even that) - and WiFi not receiveable in all public areas... Scant 'free' seating on way to Boarding Gates (most seating at restaurants/bars...
- Eamon Clancy

★★☆☆☆
Very few facilities. Wifi is okay but not excellent. Very little lounge space. Security check was fast and clear. Getting to the airport was a little bit of a maze but we made it in the end. Parking facilities are fine. Very small airport though but little delay which is always good.
- Noa Israeli

★★☆☆☆
New electronic passport gates are an absolute joke. Take three times as long as a manual check resulting in massively longer times when arriving from uk as outside schengen zone. Otherwise a nice airport. Much improved from old terminal.
- Christopher Davies

★☆☆☆☆
Spanish airports are in general terrible, badly and illogically designed. Alicante is very bad with long walking distances.
- Bernard

★★★☆☆
Pretty average airport. It's a little on the expensive side. Is actually a better airport to use for the city of Murcia than MJV Murcia San-Javier airport, if you use public transport. Despite coming from the UK, my passport wasn't checked.
