Airlines that fly from Barcelona to Alicante
Vueling is the only airline currently offering direct flights from Barcelona to Alicante.
Terminal Information – Departing
This is only a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.
Vueling flights to Alicante usually depart from terminal 1. The terminal has a fantastic selection of shops, selling everything from fashion and jewellery to sweets and souvenirs. Clothing shops include Desigual, La Perla and Mango. Wonkandy offers plenty of sweets to keep ear-popping at bay during take-off and landing. Terminal 1 has a good range of coffee shops, bars, restaurants and fast-food places. These include Spanish favourites Lizarran and Pans & Company, as well as international brands like Haagen Dazs and McDonalds. There are three spas in the departure lounge, perfect if you fancy a quick massage before your flight to Alicante. For extra relaxation you can check into the Pau Casals lounge, which was voted "the best lounge in the world" in 2013. Entrance costs €25.50* (about £19.65) and is available to all passengers, regardless of which airline you're flying with and which class.
Terminal Information – Arriving
Alicante Airport has one terminal. The arrivals hall is on the lower level, with the departure lounge upstairs. You'll find a taxi rank immediately outside the arrivals area, and can expect to pay about €20-25 (about £15-20) for a trip into the centre of the city. If you're going elsewhere you should ask for a quote from the driver before hopping in. Like most Spanish cities, taxi fares are higher at weekends and on weekdays between 10pm and 6am. Bus stops are located on the upper level, outside the departures hall. Bus C-6 goes to Alicante bus station, where you can find onward transport to other towns and resorts in the region. Single tickets cost €3.85* (just under £3). Car hire at Alicante Airport is a popular choice, and most of the big agencies have desks inside the terminal.
You don't need a passport to fly on domestic Spanish routes. You might be asked to show some photographic ID for security purposes, so we recommend bringing it anyway. Try to arrive at the airport at least one hour before your flight is scheduled to depart. Give yourself extra time if you're travelling during the summer months or have luggage to check into the hold.
