Jeréz Airport

I like Jerez Airport and driving there is always a pleasure. When you park the car the smell of the pines around the airport comes flooding in. Jerez town, Cadiz city and the Atlantic are all just minutes away.

We used to pick up a €0.01 ticket to Stanstead with Ryanair and the drive through the rolling cork oak covered mountains more than compensated for the extra hour spent on the road. Now I am sorry to say, we try to avoid flying Ryanair.

A couple of years ago we were putting our suitcases into the car for the return journey to Marbella one morning when we heard the snarling of Formula One engines at the track just over the Sevilla road. Three euros later and we were watching Fernando Alonso and Michael Schumacher testing their cars on the winding high speed circuit.

On our last trip to London a girl approached us in the check in queue in Jeréz Airport. She was a rep for Terravison which operates the Stansted Airport to London coach service. Seconds later we had a return bus ticket into London.

Getting back to the Costa del Sol needs some concentration, but if you make for the Cadíz Sevilla road, then Cadíz Algeciras, then Algeciras, then Los Barrios you can't go wrong.

Tell me what you think about Jeréz Airport or ask if you need some information on how to get there.

If you are meeting friends or family then check Jerez de la Frontera Airport Arrival and Departure timetables here.
