Valencia Airport in Manises (IATA: VLC, ICAO: LEVC), also known as Manises Airport, is the tenth-busiest Spanish airport in terms of passengers[3] and second in the region after Alicante. It is situated 8 km (5.0 mi) west[2] of the city of Valencia. The airport has flight connections to about 20 European countries and 5.79 million passengers passed through the airport in 2016.[1]

Facilities

A new regional terminal, expanded car parking facilities and apron area have been recently constructed in time for the 2007 America's Cup. The runway has been also lengthened by 50 m (160 ft). The airport has one terminal and one runway. The former runway 04/22 is not in use and has no ILS but has a helipad at the southwestern end.

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.[4] Since then the airline has continued to operate out of Valencia but as a relatively large destination airport, and not a base.
