The Ceuta heliport, opened in 2004, is the first in Spain built and managed by Aena for ensuring accessibility to the autonomous city by air and for providing a service that responds to the current air traffic demand. A quick connection to the Spanish mainland is vital to Ceuta's economic development.
The heliport is located at the port of Ceuta, between the west pier and the fishing port, in an area reclaimed from the sea to the north of the city. The facilities include a helicopter apron, a two-storey terminal, a power plant and a building for the rescue and fire fighting service.
Ceuta has regular flights to Málaga, Algeciras and Melilla. The heliport also serves as a base for the air medical service of the Autonomous City of Ceuta.
