Alicante-Elche airport gets overnight transport links

RTN HIGHLIGHTED last week that Alicante-Elche Airport lacked any overnight transport links and meant travellers faced queues of more than an hour for a taxi.  As we went to press, it was announced that a bus service would be introduced and began to operate on Monday.

Up until then, the last bus heading for the city of Alicante left at midnight, but with more and more flights arriving overnight it was exposing the shortage of onward transport, especially with restrictions on the amount of taxis able to operate from the airport.

Since overnight on Monday, travellers can get a bus to Alicante city centre at 12.20am, 1.20, 2.20, 3.20, and 4.20.  Services leave from the city to the airport at on the hour from 1am to 5am.

Alicante-Elche has now joined the other major cities across Spain that has public transport links for 24-hours a day alongside Madrid, Barcelona and Palma, Majorca.

Representatives from the tourist organisations had complained that nobody should have to wait so long to continue their journey after arriving at the airport, giving a bad impression of the area and the country in general.
