Ibiza Airport Guide - All Information on Ibiza Airport (IBZ)

Ibiza Airport is an international destination and serves the islands of Ibiza and Formentera in Spain. It is a destination mainly characterized by seasonal traffic due to the large numbers of European visitors who spend the summer on the island. It is a hub for the airline company of Vueling. The site is located approximately 7 km, or 3.4 miles to the southwest of Ibiza Town, near San José and several other popular towns and villages.

Ibiza is one of Spain's Balearic Islands, along with Mallorca, and covers an area of around 572 square kilometers. It has a population of approximately 110,000 and is a popular holiday destination. The airport, therefore, serves as an essential gateway for tourists seeking sandy beaches, sun, and nightlife, as well as historical and family attractions.

The airport of Ibiza is easily accessed by motorcar, as the E-20 is the major road leading up to the site. However, an alternative possibility by road is via the PM-803 or the Ibiza-San José motorway. From this road, motorists will take the kilometer 4 exit. The highway leading to the airfield along the northern perimeter is also called the PM-801 (or the Carretera de Ibiza-Aeropuerto).

The PM-803 joins the PM-801 at Ca'n Escandell and other points along the way. Some essential areas near the airport are the Playa d'en Bossa to the north-east, Sa Caleta to the west, Can Trontoll, Coves des Formentera and Sant Jordi just to the north. Towards the south, visitors will find the famous beaches of Ses Salines and the natural park. For motorists with a satellite navigation system, travelers can use the coordinates of 38°52′22″N 01°22′33″E to more easily locate the departure point.

The summer months of Ibiza, and the peak traffic months for the airport, are from May to October. Over 85% of total traffic is handled during this time, while most passengers travel locally between the island and other destinations in Spain during the rest of the year.

Many airline companies at Ibiza Airport offer only seasonal flights during the busier tourist season. However, throughout the year, airline flights to Barcelona, Madrid, Alicante, Palma de Mallorca, Valencia, Paris-Orly, Rome-Fiumicino, Frankfurt, and Toulouse by the airline companies of Vueling, for which the location is a hub, Swiftair, Iberia and Air Europa.

Ryanair, often referred to as the world's favorite airline company, offers year-round and seasonal flights to destinations such as Birmingham, Milan-Orio al Serio, Bremen, Glasgow-Prestwick, Hahn, Rome-Ciampino, Liverpool, and Venice-Treviso. Ibiza Airport is also served by many low-cost airline carriers, such as Easyjet, Ryanair, and Air Berlin. The other low-cost carriers operate to destinations that include Belfast-International, the London airports of Gatwick, Luton, Stansted, Manchester, Doncaster-Sheffield, Naples, and Venice-Marco Polo.

There are many car rental companies at Ibiza Airport for those looking to rent a vehicle on the island. Alternatively, there are options of buses or taxis to transfer to and from Ibiza Airport.

The airport began as a temporary military airfield in an area known as 'Es Codolá' and was put to use in 1949. This little airfield then handled national and international civil tourist air traffic. Also, it served as a stopover for international flights, but two years later, it was closed due to insufficient facilities. When air traffic became more prevalent in the other Balearic Islands of Spain, such as Mallorca, plans were made to improve Ibiza's airport. In 1958, work began re-opening the site and making it sustainable for the growing tourism industry. In April 1958, flights started from Ibiza, mainly to Palma de Mallorca, Barcelona, and Madrid, on Bristol 170 aircraft, and shortly after that, Iberia began its flights to similar regions.

Over the subsequent few years' improvements were made to the runway, and officials brought in a control tower from the Palma de Mallorca Airport. Extensions were made to the passenger terminal, handling domestic traffic. In July 1964, the airport received a VHF radiogoniometer for the control tower and lighting for the runway and aircraft platforms.

1966 was an important year for the airport. In July, it was opened for international traffic, with a customs area operational 24 hours a day, allowing for non-stop international flights. A new terminal was completed in 1973, initially used only for international traffic but now includes domestic traffic. The old airport was converted into a technical and administrative center. Through the 1970s, improvements also had a larger car parking area, and work on the runway allowed for the landing of Boeing 747s. In 2002, extensions were made to the arrival and departure lounges and the check-in areas.

By 1997, Ibiza Airport was handling over three and a half million passengers per year and had hit the four million mark by the end of 1999. Passenger traffic almost passed four and half million in the following two years, but then saw a slight decline until 2006. From 2007 onwards, the destination never had less than four and a half million passengers; in 2019, it handled a total of 8.16 million passengers. The pandemic in 2020 saw passenger numbers fall to 2.11 million passengers, and it appears travelers are returning to the region again with 4.85 million passengers in 2021 The airport is also reasonably significant for cargo traffic, with approximately three thousand tons per annum.

The airport consists of a single terminal building with check-in facilities, ticket sales offices on the ground floor, and boarding areas on the upper floor. All arrival traffic is handled from the ground floor. The terminal is fully equipped to welcome disabled passengers. It features many facilities, including banking and currency exchange services, ATMs, a variety of shops and restaurants, a lost and found office, a post office, internet connections, and pharmacy and medical services.
