The airport of San Sebastián is a Spanish airport of Aena located 20 km from the city of San Sebastian , in the municipality of Fuenterrabía ( Guipúzcoa ), next to the border between Spain and France .
The annual traffic during the year 2013 was 244,952 passengers, 6,237 operations and 20,000 kilos of cargo. The 29 of October of 2006 began its regular activity at the airport company Spanair , flying to Madrid in direct competition with the Iberia group, but because of the internal crisis of the company that withdrew many of its operations from Madrid to traspass to Barcelona, it stopped operating at this airport despite its good occupancy rates.
On March 25, 2012 the Vueling company began operating in Fuenterrabía in competition with Iberia , offering daily flights to Barcelona , and offering tickets for € 29.99 each way. This is causing the number of passengers at the airport to climb, since Vueling’s planes currently have an occupation of more than 85%, and Iberia does not see its number of customers diminished. Vueling confirmed that waiting to see the first results that the company can harvest in the first 2-3 months on the San Sebastián – Barcelona route , it may be useful in the very near future for them to also install the route San Sebastian – Madrid , again competing with Iberia , or even explore new routes.
The company Iberia , its franchise Air Nostrum and Vueling are the airlines that currently operate in San Sebastian on a regular basis.
