San Sebastián Airport (IATA: EAS, ICAO: LESO) is the airport serving San Sebastián in Basque Country, Spain. Despite its name, the facilities are located in the municipality of Hondarribia, with the runway stretching like a spit of land along the river Bidasoa right on the Spanish-French border.
The airport serves domestic flights, especially to Madrid. A scheme is in the pipeline to lengthen the runway (2008) in order to meet the requirements established to provide service for larger aircraft. Preliminary plans are still coming up against strong opposition, which has added to the economic difficulties facing the carriers using the airport, making its future all the more uncertain. The nearest international airports are Bilbao Airport (117 km by car) and Biarritz Pays Basque Airport (32 km).
