You can easily get to and from Valencia airport by public transportation. Two metro lines connect the airport with the city center and the port: line 3 (Rafelbunyol-Airport) and line 5 (Airport-Marítim Serrería). Both lines depart from the national flights terminal, where you’ll also find a Valenciametro information point if you need. The metro runs every 15 minutes from 5 AM to 12 AM Monday to Friday, every 20 minutes from 6 AM to 12.30 AM on Saturdays and every 20 minutes from 7 AM to 12 AM on Sundays and public holidays (times are approximate). You’ll get to Xativa Station (city center) in about 25 minutes.
Alternatively, you can take the Aero-Bus, offering a direct service that connects Valencia airport and the city. It runs every 20 minutes from 6 AM to 10 PM every day. There’s another public bus, the bus number 150, that runs from the city center to the airport, stopping at the towns of Mislata, Quart de Poblet and Menises.
All of the above options are affordable, and the trip doesn’t take long. Both the metro and the Aero-bus are convenient means of transport to take to and from Valencia airport. You can even use your Valencia Tourist Card if you have one, as it offers free transportation including the trip to and from the airport.
Of course you can also reach the Valencia airport by car and taxi, the journey takes only a few minutes but it’s obviously the most expensive option.
The other airports that are closest to Valencia are Alicante and Castellón airports, still in the same Spanish region but much smaller and further away.
