Sondica Airport

Bilbao

IN SHORT

Located approximately 10 kilometers (6 miles) north of the city, with a metro connection planned, the new Sondica Airport terminal is situated across the apron and runways from the original terminal. Within this new facility, there is considerable potential for future expansion. Sondica Airport was able to handle 2 million passengers per year when it opened in November 2000. By 2005, the airport was handling 3.8 million passengers annually (25% of international flights) and 4000 tons of cargo. Sondica Airport will ultimately be able to accommodate up to 10 million passengers a year. In 1990, Bilbao Airport had reached the limits of its development.
