Airports near to Cumbre del Sol
Alicante is the best-placed airport for travel abroad, and like any major city, offers a variety of destinations and price points for the budget conscious. The working day is often seasonal, with later opening hours over the summer months, and many businesses still close during traditional siesta hours.
Alicante Airport (IATA: ALC, ICAO: LEAL), also known as Alicante-Elche Airport, is currently the fifth largest airport in Spain and is the gateway to the Costa Blanca resort region, serving both the Valencia Community and the Region of Murcia. It is located 9 kilometres southwest of Alicante city. Growing in size continuously over the past years, in March 2011 the airport got a brand new terminal building, replacing the old two terminals.
Corvera Murcia Airport is a new Airport in Murcia. Several airlines are flying in and out of Corvera Murcia Airport, covering an increasing number of flight routes. Corvera replaces Murcia San Javier Airport (for civilian flights) and is also run by AENA (the official airport authority). It has significant scope to handle many more additional routes.
Valencia Airport ( VLC ) also known as Manises Airport, is the tenth-busiest Spanish airport in terms of passengers and second in the region after Alicante. It is situated 8 km (5.0 mi) west of the city of Valencia, in Manises.

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 dispute over subsidies by the airport authorities. Since then the airline has continued to operate out of Valencia but as a relatively large destination airport, and not a base.
