Santander Mini Guide

Santander has a small airport which means that using it is not a hassle. Ryanair is the only airline to offer cheap flights from Britain to this part of Northern Spain which attracts tourists because of its clean beaches and lively nightlife.

However, Iberia has many internal flights from other parts of Spain such as Alicante, Barcelona, Malaga, Seville, Valencia, Palma de Mallorca and even Gran Canaria. The airport was extended recently and now around 800,000 passengers alight there for their Santander break.

Santander City

There is a shop within the terminal building selling items such as tobacco and confectionery and a cafeteria in the departures waiting area which serves refreshments and snacks. The Santander arrivals and departures area is not that large and there are two baggage collection carousels, eight check in desks and three boarding gates.

Passengers who are arriving come in on the ground floor of the passenger terminal building via two doors. The general arrivals hall can hold more than 600 passengers and includes the baggage reclaim hall, passport control and the arrivals hall with car hire offices.

On arrival, visitors are greeted by a wide choice of rental car options. The companies Hertz, Avis, Europcar and Atesa all have a presence at Santander Airport and can be booked by using Rhino.

There are almost 800 parking spaces at Santander Airport, 20 of which are for disabled drivers. These cost just under 50 cents for the first half hour. Then it goes up to around eight Euros per day for up to four days, but after the fifth day the daily maximum is only €3.45.
