Information on getting to Gibraltar by plane or boat, plus useful information on airport hand luggage rules...

Gibraltar International Airport is a small airport with only a few airlines operating flights in and out of Gibraltar - Monarch, EasyJet and British Airways with flights to the UK, and Royal Air Maroc, which flies to Tangier and Casablanca.

The airport is unusual in that the main road that runs from Gibraltar into Spain, intersects the runway and is closed whenever a plane is taking off or landing. The runway itself runs across the entire width of the most northern part of Gibraltar and was extended by reclaiming land in the Bay of Gibraltar.

Airport Facilities

The airport provides free Wi-Fi and areas to charge laptops and mobile phones. Duty free shopping is available in the departures hall and also in the arrivals hall next to the baggage reclaim.

Transport into Gibraltar from the airport is relatively easy; there are taxis available at a taxi rank outside the airport terminal, as well as a bus service into the city centre.
