ENAIRE, formerly known as AENA (Aeropuertos Españoles y Navegación Aérea),[1] is the Spanish public body that owns and operates the majority of airports in the country, with the exceptions of the privately owned Ciudad Real and Lleida-Alguaire airports. ENAIRE is also responsible for Air Traffic Control throughout Spain while the body's proprietary ATC system is called SACTA. Its head office is located in Madrid.[2]


Currently ENAIRE is undergoing a major airport expansion program. A US$2.2 billion new terminal of Madrid Barajas International Airport was inaugurated in 2006.[3] Barcelona International Airport's new T1 terminal was completed in 2009, for US$1.7 billion.[4] Alicante Airport is due to expand soon with a €570 million terminal expected to open in 2011[5] and Málaga Airport is undergoing an expansion with various investments planned until 2013, with the completion of Terminal 3 in June 2010.[6] Other airports on the network will be expanded to accommodate the increasing air traffic demand.

ENAIRE is the world's largest airport operator,[7] with 47 airports and two heliports in Spain and participation in airports in Mexico, the USA, Cuba, Colombia, Bolivia, Sweden and the UK.[8]

In 2014, 195 million passengers used ENAIRE airports in Spain.[9] ENAIRE is a full member of the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO).
