As impressive looking the new terminal building at Alicante Airport might be, as confusing is driving to it by car. Below a detailed step-by-step map of Alicante airport and various photos I took to help you better find your way around.
Remark: I tried to draw the airport map in a way to highlight roads, because that’s what this is all about. The map is certainly not at all perfect, but I hope it fulfills the purpose of helping you driving around Alicante airport by car.
Step by Step Driving Around Alicante Airport By Car
The numbers on the map refer to the pictures shown below, hopefully guiding you well driving around the airport area.
(Take extra care when you come in via the N332 as you enter the area on the left lane, with other cars “overtaking” you at your right side. )
Please also note, currently the signs are only in spanish and valenciano language. (well, perhaps it takes a while for the airport company to understand what “international” in “Alicante international Airport” stands for 😉 . This way, for what its worth, you at least learn what arrival and departures means in valenciano too.
As shown on the signs, you take either the lane back to Alicante and Murcia, or for the parking garage and car hire drop off area or you head to the arrivals area.Note: Signs shown on the photo left are enlarged for better visibility.
Only if you are driving a charter bus or have deliveries for the airport, you should consider the left lane :-).Note: Again, for better visibility I zoomed in the sign in the image shown.
If you took the parking and car hire lane, you will end up at the back of the parking building of the airport. The Alicante airport parking building (or should i call it parking garage ? ), has two entrances.

The terminal building has one additional level (Level 1) between the departure area and arrival area. This “in-between” level only hosts a tunnel passage-way connecting the parking building with the terminal building. (It is not shown in the picture No.5 above.).
At the lowest level (Level -2) is the “bus level”, which is where most buses ( all charter buses) stop. (The exception are some local subus and alsa buses, which stop at the end of the departure area).
I hope the above map and images of the roads and streets around Alicante airport help you in finding your way to the right areas. At first I also found it confusing, as with most new things I guess. But once you got a basic grasp of all possible lanes to the terminal building, driving to Alicante airport is not that difficult anymore.
