Santiago de Compostela Airport is located in the historic region of Galicia in Spain, in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula. The international airport is located 12 km from the city of Santiago de Compostela, in the parish of Lavacolla. The well-known Christian pilgrimage route of the Camino de Santiago passes close to the airport.
The number of passengers (2,903,427 passengers in 2019) has grown considerably, and it is no wonder that Santiago de Compostela International Airport is now the second busiest airport in northern Spain after Bilbao Airport. Ryanair is the airline offering the largest number of routes from Santiago de Compostela airport, with 13 different destinations along with Air Nostrum, IBERIA and Vueling, with 10 European cities.
The construction of the airport dates back to 1935, and the first scheduled flights from Santiago de Compostela airport began in 1937.
Currently, Santiago de Compostela airport has only one terminal in operation, as the old terminal closed and all flight operations were moved to the new terminal on the night of October 13, 2011, leaving the old terminal and its jetways services unavailable for scheduled/commercial flights, the military area was recently refurbished and the fire department now has new facilities next to the new terminal next to the air cargo hangar and the new maritime rescue hangar.
The new terminal has been designed to handle up to 4 million passengers per year, and is expected to be expanded at some point in the future.
