Seville Airport Parking


We went to Morocco for the weekend last Friday morning leaving from Sevilla Airport so the evening before I went out onto the terrace to check distances and times to the airport in Sevilla on my TomTom. The airport is exactly 265kms or 2 hours 27 minutes from Marbella.

We were flying Ryanair from Seville, landing at Marrakesh airport and then taking a hire car from Marrakesh Airport to drive about 200 kms down the new motorway south to a little village outside Agadir.

Our route to Seville Airport took us through the Cadíz province on the Los Barrios road. It's slightly longer distancewise than going through Ronda but it´s faster and much easier driving. I love that drive through Cadiz through the cork oaks and the rock covered hills which remind me of the granite kopjes in Rhodesia where I was born and grew up.

You'll see in the photo above that the airport has a great covered parking area, ideal for leaving a car during the hot Sevilla summers. I'll set out the charges for you below.

Seville Airport Parking Charges (2010)

0 - 30 minutes 0.027 cents per minute
30 - 60 minutes 0.025 cents per minute
61 + 0.022 cents per minute

Daily parking maximum up to 4 days, €14.65
Daily parking maximum from 5th day, €11.65

If I had been flying on my own and had had more time, I would have left the car on the outskirts of Sevilla and taken the Sevilla Airport bus which runs frequently every day between the city and the airportm just to see how it worked.

Leaving the car in the covered parking from Friday 12am to Monday 16.45. when we got back worked out at just over €50. There is a low cost longer term parking solution very near the airport which I'll use next time.
