Introduction

The Huesca-Pirineos airport is located 10.5 km south-east of the city of Huesca, between the towns of Alcala del Obispo and Monflorite. It is in a privileged location for communication with the Pyrenees of Aragon, an important stop for skiers, since it is the site of some of Spain's major resorts.

To equip it with modern facilities, capable of serving air traffic demand with appropriate levels of safety and quality, Aena is undertaking major infrastructure works, consisting primarily of the construction of a new Terminal Area and a new Airfield. Classified as a general interest airport and incorporated into the Aena network in October 2000, the airport has been open for visual flight operations since December 2006. Instrument flight rules based on the new VOR/DME installed came into effect in May 2007.

There are two runways: 30R-12L, for glider flight activity, and the primary runway 30L-12R, for commercial activity. The routes for gliders are established to the north of the airfield and the routes for motor-powered aircraft are to the south.

In 2016, it handled 95 passengers and 4,684 flight operations.
