Alicante Airport Trains
Alicante airport currently has no a train station. There were provisions made in anticipation of a train or tram link when the new NAT terminal was constructed, but there is currently no plan to build a line. A line would be located in the basement of the terminal if it were to be built in the future.
There is, however, a train station in the city of Alicante, and it is easily accessible by bus. There is an 'Airport to Alicante City' bus, or Line C6, which takes you from the airport to the train station in approximately 45 minutes. The price is €3.85 per ticket and it departs every 20 minutes. You can catch this bus from bus stop 29 or 30, which is located just outside of the terminal. You can find out more about buses to and from the airport on our bus page.
The train station in Alicante is connected to the national train network, so it connects Alicante to all the major Spanish cities, such as Madrid, Seville and Barcelona. RENFE is the operator of this station, which is the state owned railway company in Spain.
