Seville’s San Pablo Airport lies just 10km northeast of the city of Seville on the main A4 motorway which connects the city with Madrid. Considering that Seville is Spain’s 4th largest city and of enormous interest to tourists it isn’t particularly well connected with international destinations by air. If you can’t find a direct flight you can always fly to Madrid or Barcelona and take a domestic connection or get a flight to Malaga and drive to Seville. Alternatively, you can make use of the high speed AVE rail link which connects Seville with Madrid and Madrid with Barcelona.
Airport Transport Options
Getting into Seville from the airport is straightforward thanks to the bus, taxi and private transfer options available. The three main options for transferring into the city centre are as follows:
Private Transfers: You can pre-book transfers from Seville airport and have a driver waiting for you as you enter the airport’s arrivals lounge.
Airport Bus: There’s a special airport bus service called EA (Especial Aeropuerto) which operates between the airport and Plaza de Armas. The full journey takes around 35 minutes. You’ll find the bus stop behind the taxi rank as you leave the arrivals area. The route is as follows:
Seville Airport – Avenida Kansas City – Santa Justa Railway Station – Luis de Morales – San Bernardo – Avenida Carlos V – Paseo Colon – Estación Plaza de Armas
You can check Seville bus timetables and route maps online.
Taxi Transfers: There are always plenty taxis available from the airport into the city centre from the taxi rank which is located just outside the arrivals area. The journey takes around 15 minutes with prices ranging from around €23 to €35 depending on the time of day and how much luggage you’re carrying. Prices are always higher during Semana Santa and the the Feria de Abril. For peace of mind it’s often worth considering a pre-paid private transfer.
Seville Airport Car Hire: Renting a car to drive into the city isn’t a good idea unless you’re familiar with the road system as you’ll almost certainly get lost and parking can be a nightmare. If, however, you do want to rent one there are numerous car rental operators based in the airport terminal. Better rates for Seville airport car hire are available online.
