Default Alicante airport new terminal

I posted this on another forum and thought it might be of interest here.


My husband went there this morning to meet someone.

You drive in as though you were driving to the old terminal one. Past the front of the old terminal is the new terminal (now called terminal one) and the new car park.

The old terminals 1 and 2 are now closed, as is the old car park.

The new terminal is open together with a new large 5 story car park. The best level to park when meeting someone at arrivals is level 4 then you just walk across an enclosed walkway into the terminal.

There is a limited drop off area for departures at level 5.

CLOSED? Permanently? Thats a bit odd... I thought that the new terminal was to house "international" flights and the other two would still be operational... its not long since they built terminal 2!

So whats happening with 1&2?

I am flying to the uk for a couple of days at the weekend, Ryanair.. so I will be in new terminal will I?

Ohh er misses! That will be fun!

I would imagine they will now try to sell T3 to international flights, then move local and eu flights back to the other terminal perhaps

Thats good info thanks.

Where would you go if you were picking someone up though and not parking? Is that available?>

Someone just been there said inside there are some moving walkways which are quite dangerous as no signs to say they are there.
This friend saw 2 people fall over on it just as he was there.
Also you come out on one of the levels he said where the taxi's are and he said it was like a wind tunnel and blew him over nearly!

That said another friend said it was amazing!
