"airport is relatively clean"

(Spain)

I usually fly from and to this airport and I have to say it's not an actual airport, it's an aerodrome. Has massive queues at check-in, security control and bagagge claiming, few expensive shops and restaurants and they usually close early, so there's no chance to have dinner there. The airport is relatively clean, though some bathrooms stink and there's a lack of seating, so most of times we have to sit on the ground. Also, the planes are usually parked at the aprons at the far end of the terminal so you have to take a bus to get there. There's free WiFi service too, but it's only for 30 minutes (with a data limit, so they become 5 or 8 minutes) and terribly slow. If you want a better Internet connection you have to pay a expensive fare and leave lots of personal information. But it has a good location near the city and you can travel to Valencia easily by metro or car. In my opinion, it's an aerodrome with some gates that is called airport, but it's your only chance if you want to visit the beautiful city of Valencia. So carry on and use the plug for charging you phone and distracting yourself, at least the terminal it's plenty of them.

"a dire excuse for a 21st century European airport"

(United Kingdom)

What a dire excuse Valencia Airport is for a 21st century European airport. There are about 2 shops and these all shut about 2 hours before the last flights leave at midnight. Mine was supposed to leave about 21.30 but was delayed. Fortunately I arrived a little early so just squeezed into the closing duty free shop and just got the last burger from the burger joint. Plus the temperature was roasting. Glad I wasn't dressed for back home and was still in shorts. If travelling after 8pm make sure you are well fed and buy as much fags and booze before getting here in case it's all closed. Avoid at all costs.

Valencia Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

We arrived two and a half hours before the flight, but you need it. Only two check in desks open so a very long queue of an hour. Then another hour queuing inside for something to eat at the only fast food restaurant. Get used to standing and waiting in this airport.

(Ireland)

This airport is really badly looked after. The bathrooms were filthy, so were the seating areas and floors - looked like they hadn't been cleaned in ages. Starbucks tables and floor strewn with rubbish. Staff at security grumpy. No charging facilities that I could see. Awful airport.

Valencia Airport customer review

(Brazil)

As the former poster said the airport is very outdated not enough space for the check-in area so when the airlines start their procedures the airport becomes a gate to hell. There's a nice restaurant at the top where you find friendly staff and a balcony to watch planes departing and arriving. Security is strict and this airport and will open all your carry-ons.

Valencia Airport customer review

Small but pleasant and convenient airport. Short ways upon arrival luggage delivery is usually quick. In the public area good food court with nice views on the apron. A modern metro line connects the airport to downtown Valencia every 10 mins - reliable service at EUR2.90 one-way travel time to central station "Estacio del Nord" around 20 mins. It is much cheaper to buy a 10-ride travel card for EUR10.40. Upon departure check-in was hassle-free - however self-service machines are for Iberia flights only. No queue at security friendly staff but with little English knowledge. Boarding gates A-D are lacking proper airconditioning so that it can quickly become very warm there - it is more pleasant to wait at the gates R1-R10 in the new pier.

Valencia Airport customer review

Used Valencia airport several times a year and never really had any big problems except for random gate changes and poor queuing system. Sometimes the buses are used but more often you walk across the runway to get to the plane which is usually parked half a mile away. Don't really know whose fault that is but I suppose you just put up with it as long as the flight leaves roughly on time.

Valencia Airport customer review

One of the dullest airports I've been to. After security there's no We live in Denia so we are equal distance to Alicante/Valencia airports. We much prefer to use Valencia and now the re-building is complete it is excellent. A new Multi-storey car park opposite the terminal with easy access a bit more expensive than before at 1.20€. There is also a long term car park in P4 outdoor site but no transfer bus to the main building and just as expensive as the main P1 park. The main car rental firms are very near. The new metro into the city (Xativa is the main railway station) also linking at the terminus with the tram to place you just outside the Americas cup area. I just wish the train extension from Denia was completed. All meals we have had have been good I agree that they should be open both earlier and later to meet passengers needs! Generally it is a cool spacious and pleasant place easy to access by road metro and bus.

Valencia Airport customer review

One of the dullest airports I've been to. After security there's no paper shop just a duty free cafe and random charcuteria style shop. Security guard said I could go back to check in side and buy papers but to be honest i couldn't be bothered to go through security yet again! However on the good side the cafe is heaps cheaper compared to Malaga and Alicante Airport.

Valencia Airport customer review

Great unless you travel in the evening. Shops all close early - lots of passengers but down come the shutters! No hot food available after 19-30 a bit bizarre as Spanish dining time is 8pm +. What was available was poor quality not improved by seeing the cockroaches running around the bar by the sandwich grill- nice! When I complained to the Airport desk- shrug of shoulders- a comment that lots of people complain- then why no action? On the good side it is small and good airbus service to the city centre.
