Flamenco, chilled sangria and bullfights – Seville is as Spanish as it gets. The grandeur of the past has been recognized worldwide and the city now has not one, but three UNESCO Heritage Sites.

There has been significant investment in advanced technologies – Seville is an Airbus Military stronghold and it also boasts the world's biggest solar energy plant. The Holy Week and the Feria de Abril are among the most famous and well-known events in Spain. The Cinema Festival has become more and more popular over recent years.

Other major reasons to serve this airport

  • Region with a strong economy and a high-yield catchment area.
  • Seville has three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the largest Gothic Christian cathedral in the world and the third largest church in the world, the Alcazar of Seville and the Archivo de Indias.
  • Tourists can enjoy wandering through the narrow streets and main avenues, seeing the magnificent monuments and buildings which contribute to the city’s fascinating heritage, many of them standing since the Moorish conquest in the 8th century.
  • Significant investment in advanced technologies. Seville is an Airbus stronghold, and also features the world’s biggest solar energy plant.
  • The Holy Week and the Feria de Abril are among the most famous and well-know events in Spain. The Cinema Festival is becoming more and more popular in recent years.
  • Additionally, in 2015 Seville Airport was certified by the Spanish Aviation Safety Agency (AESA), meeting the international standards recommended by ICAO. The certification, valid indefinitely, entails both safety improvements and meeting international technical standards.

Seville might be easily marketable, but it's a competitive environment. A number of carriers operate domestic services, while Germany still suffers from a lack of connectivity, with Hamburg and Stuttgart being unserved.
