Introduction

Just 7.5 km from the capital, and perfectly connected to the most important tourist centres, the Ibiza airport is the island's primary communications artery. The airport facilities serve Ibiza and Formentera, and they are used by 95 per cent of all people who arrive at or depart from these islands.

Ibiza airport is characterised by the seasonal nature of its demand and by its predominantly tourist character. It also offers very important scheduled inter-island and mainland traffic, with flights centring on the management or business hubs, such as Barcelona, Madrid-Barajas and Palma de Mallorca, with constant distribution characteristics throughout the year.

The total traffic volume in 2016 included 7,416,368 passengers, 72,503 operations and 1,831 tonnes of cargo.
