Valencia Airport in Manises (IATA: VLCICAO: LEVC), also known as Manises Airport,[3] is the 8th busiest Spanish airport in terms of passengers[4] 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 15 European countries and 4.9 million passengers passed through the airport in 2010.[1] 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.

Valencia airport is situated adjacent to the Autovía A-3 highway which connects Valencia with Madrid and is also close to the Autovía A-7 coastal route to Barcelona. It is also well served by public transport. It is connected to Valencia by a regular bus line (MetroBus) which takes 45 minutes, while the shuttle service (Aerobus) to city centre takes only 20 minutes. The metro network (lines 3 and 5) also connect the airport to the city centre (15 minutes), the Railway Station and the Port.

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).

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.[5] Since then the airline has continued to operate out of Valencia but as a relatively large destination airport, and not a base. Ryanair since announced on 23 June 2010, that it would re-open its Valencia base with 2 based aircraft and 10 new destinations from November 2010.
