Introduction

Algeciras heliport, the second of the Aena network, completes the aeronautic infrastructure map of Andalusia. Located in the Bay de Algeciras port, the objective of this heliport is to improve communications between mainland Spain and the Autonomous City of Ceuta.

The situation of the heliport, opened on July 1st, 2010, is strategically important, due to its unique geographical location (today the Bay of Algeciras is the multimodal logistics point with the highest amount of passenger and merchandise traffic between Europe and Africa) as well as to its social and economic significance in the region of Campo de Gibraltar.

Therefore, the heliport represents a factor for modernising and economically developing both cities, and boosts tourism and make for closer business relations between Ceuta and Algeciras in a similar way as the air shuttle between Madrid and Barcelona.

There are no current regular commercial flights in operation.

In 2016, the heliport handled 136 passengers and 84 aircraft movements.
