Ibiza International Airport is located on the Spanish island of the same name in the Mediterranean Sea, seven kilometers from the local capital – the town of Ibiza. The airport serves also Formentera Island, located several kilometers away, and connected to Ibiza by ferry.

Many low-cost airlines, such as EasyJet, Eurowings, Jet2.com, Ryanair and Wizz Air, operate regular flights to Ibiza Island, which is considered a fashionable European resort.
At the service of passengers are car rental companies, cafes and restaurants, shops, a currency exchange office, a pharmacy, playgrounds for children. In addition, everyone can connect to free Wi-Fi via the ‘Airport Free Wifi Aena’ network. If you need to withdraw cash, there are two ATMs in the arrival area.
