The new Alicante airport, known as the El Altet international airport, will be the most modern structure of its kind in Spain when it opens in February 2011, with a capacity for 20 million passengers per year, almost doubling present day numbers.
With the opening of the new terminal, El Altet’s luxurious facilities will cover an expanse of eight floors, topped by twenty spectacular large glass domes. The overall investment in extension work is around 670 million euros and the area has increased sixfold (from 54,800 square meters to 333,500 square meters).
The new airport terminal in Alicante will have an upgraded shopping and commercial area which will include a restaurant owned by the prestigious chef Quique Dacosta, awarded with two Michelin stars. Dacosta's restaurant, called the “Air Tapasbar” will provide a higher quality level and cachet that the previous airport lacked. Quique Dacosta was born in Cáceres, in the west of Spain, but has nevertheless made the Alicante province his home, thanks to his establishment “El Poblet” located in Denia town on the North Costa Blanca.
This commitment to increase the quality of airport services denotes a higher quality of tourism that this area of the coast, the Costa Blanca, is now receiving, as it emerges as the new destination for luxury home buyers.
