Seville Airport (Aeropuerto de Sevilla IATA: SVQ, ICAO: LEZL) is the main airport for Seville in southern Spain. The airport handled 4,051,392 passengers and just under 5,000 tonnes of cargo in 2009. It has one terminal and one runway. Construction of the airport began in 1915, and by 1919 the first commercial flights had started. At the start of Spanish Civil War it was the arrival point for Spanish Legion troops.
During 1940s, the airport was designated a custom post for international traffic, primarily to South America, and was largely reconstructed. Furthermore, extensive rebuilding of the airport between 1989 and 1992 facilitated the arrival of many visitors for EXPO'92. Seville Airport is situated on the A4 motorway (known as E05 in the International E-road network ) which connects Seville with Madrid. The motorways around Seville provide relatively easy access to Jerez, Málaga, Cádiz, Huelva and into Portugal. It is served by half-hourly buses to the centre of Seville, stopping at Santa Justa railway station and Puerta de Jerez, which take about 40 minutes. The buses run from 06:15 to 23:00.
