Valladolid Airport (IATA: VLL, ICAO: LEVD) is an airport situated in the municipality of Villanubla, ten kilometres northwest of Valladolid (Castile and León, Spain). The civilian airport shares space with an air base of the Spanish Air Force called "Base Aérea de Villanubla" (Villanubla Air Base).

Overview[edit]

The airport was opened in 1938 in Villanubla, a small town 11 km from Valladolid. It has been renovated in 1952, 1972, 1982, 1990 and 2000. The new passenger terminal was inaugurated in 2000, and its main features are its clean, functional design, emphasised by spaciousness and numerous aesthetically pleasing elements. During recent years, with the arrival of low-cost airline companies, passenger numbers have increased greatly, particularly in the area of tourist and holiday flights. The terminal offers all the usual amenities expected by passengers, including a duty-free shop, café and restaurant, ATM and information services.
