Reus Airport, Tarragona, Spain

July 13th, 2007 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places

The Reus Airport (IATA: REU, ICAO: LERS) is located by the beaches of Costa Daurada, equidistant in relation to the towns of Constantí and Reus and approximately 7.5 km from the city of Tarragona, in Catalonia, Spain.

A recent influx of flights has led to a dramatic increase in passenger numbers at the airport. In 1995, approximately 500,000 passengers passed through the airport. In 2004 this number more than doubled to 1.1 million and in 2005 it reached 1.4 million.

The increase in passenger numbers has necessitated several improvement projects at the airport. The new arrivals hall is fully operational, and the departures terminal renovations are underway. The check-in area has already been completed.

The airport receives a large amount of tourist traffic from passengers destined for the beach resorts of Salou and Cambrils. It is also close to one of Europe's largest theme parks, Port Aventura. In addition, passengers travel to the Mountains of Prades, a Mediterranean forest in the comarca of Baix Camp. The Priorat, a neighboring region, is known for the quality of its wines.

Some low-fare airlines use Reus Airport in place of service to Barcelona, as the city is 90km to the north and can be reached by public and private transport.
