Huesca–Pirineos Airport[4] (Spanish: Aeropuerto de Huesca-Pirineos[5]) (IATA: HSKICAO: LEHC), also known as Huesca Airport, is the airport serving the province of Huesca in Spain.

The airport is located 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) southeast of the city of Huesca, near the villages of Monflorite-Lascasas and Alcalá del Obispo. The airport is intended to support skiing resorts in the Aragonese Pyrenees, but the closest ski station is more than 100 kilometers away.

In 2013, 279 passengers passed through the airport, a decrease of 79.2% from 2012. Aircraft movements fell by 33.1% to 1,637. [6]

Airlines and destinations[edit]

In February 2011, Pyrenair ceased activities, leaving the airport without any commercial activity until Air Europa commenced a seasonal service to Menorca which since also ceased. As of January 2014 there are no scheduled services to and from Huesca.
