Inside Granada Airport

In 1972, the airport opened up to commercial travel, and has since experienced a spike in travel. The 1995 World Ski Championship was held in Granada, leading to a considerable improvement in the airport facilities in order to accommodate the increase in passenger traffic for the event. Further aircraft parking areas were built, the runway was lengthened, and the terminal building was enlarged. The airport shopping experience is inspired by the Muslim legacy of the region. You can find anything from tobacco products to regional treats such as Sephardic sweets. The airport also features 15 minutes of free WiFi.
