(Manises Airport) is located in Manises about 8km west of Valencia, beside the Autovia A3 which connects Valencia with Madrid, and it is also close to the coastal road to Barcelona called the Autovia A7. The airport used to be a Ryanair hub, however, they had disagreements with the airport authorities over subsidies, so they only use it as a regular destination now with two planes based from Valencia to 10 destinations in Europe. Valencia is the third largest city in Spain and is home to a beautiful and historic city, as well as having spectacular beaches nearby. It is no wonder the airport has over 5 million passengers a year.
