Travelers to Torrevieja are usually flying in either at Alicante airport or Murcia San Javier airport.
If you are coming into Alicante airport the new Torrevieja Quickair bus is a very cheap and speedy way to get you to your holiday destination. Running several times a day, the bus connects downtown Torrevieja ( central bus station ) with Alicante airport.

Murcia Airport Bus to Torrevieja
The current bus connections between Murcia’s San Javier Airport and Torrevieja are no better. Here a choice is to take the latbus airport bus from the Murcia Airport to the downtown Murcia bus station Unfortunately this bus runs currently (2010) only 3 times during the evening hours. From Murcia’s central bus station you can take another bus to Torrevieja. A lots of back and forth for a rather short straight distance.
Again, whatever you choose to do, for the around 35km distance between Torrevieja and Murcia San Javier Airport, I would not advice to take a trip to Murcia downtown and back to Torrevieja (probably a total of trip of 100km).
Any alternative transport method, like car rental, a taxi or a private bus shuttle is certainly the better choice.
We are still hoping that the authorities will one day understand the need for simple, reliable and frequent bus services from Alicante and Murcia airport to Torrevieja.
