Jerez Airport is one of the main airports for the region of Cadiz in southern Spain and is located 8-10km north-east of Jerez de la Frontera and about 45km away from the city of Cadiz and around 80km from Seville.
Jerez Airport is located to the east of the N-IV road and is not far from the AP4 Seville to Cadiz toll road. If you leave the AP4 at exit km79 the airport is signposted from the first roundabout.
Jerez Airport has grown over the last decade to become the 11th busiest airport in mainland Spain handling 1,607,968 passengers in 2007 which was an increase of 16.4% from the year before. As with other smaller airports, the vast increase in passenger numbers has been due to the explosion of the lower cost airlines and Ryanair for example has regular flights between Stansted and Jerez.
Growth in passenger numbers has meant that Jerez Airport has had to undergo various stages of remodelling and modernisation and at the end of 1991 works began to increase the space available for aircraft, improve the surrounding infrastructure and construction of a new passenger terminal that opened in 2002.
Recent changes have meant that Jerez Airport is an efficiently run and modern airport that is still a relatively smaller size than many of the major Spanish airports and still has much potential in the future planned for the airport.
Importantly, Jerez Airport is due to become the only airport besides Barcelona Airport to have its own AVE train station.
Planned for around 2012, the new link to Seville would cut down the average journey time of approx 45 minutes by car to around 20 minutes and would make Jerez a serious contender as a commuter town for those working in the busy city of Seville and would also mean that Jerez Airport becomes also more of a popular alternative to Malaga Airport for Seville and the areas surrounding the city.
