The arrivals halls are on the ground floors of both terminal buildings 1 and 2.
The new Terminal 2 arrivals hall opened in August last year and has an inspection and baggage handling system which can process 2,000 bags per hour as well as receiving baggage direct from hotels or cruises.
Baggage reclaim in Terminal 1 is in three halls: Domestic and European Community flights (5 baggage reclaim carousels), Regional flights (2 baggage reclaim carousels) and International flights from non-Schengen countries (1 baggage reclaim carousel).
Once at the airport there are several ways of getting to your holiday destination. If you are only here for a few days or are staying in the city centre then it is probably easiest to catch a taxi from Valencia Airport. We also have advice on private Valencia Airport Transfers which often cost less than a traditional taxi but add that extra special touch to your break.
There are also buses and two underground train lines which link the airport, the city centre and the port. The bus stops are opposite the arrivals halls and the railway station is on the ground floor of the regional flights terminal.
If you are planning on staying in the city centre and its environs during your stay, then it is easier to get around by public transport that by hiring a car and having the problems of manoeuvring the busy traffic and finding somewhere to park. Bit if you do want to explore the surrounding area then your own wheels are the best option so that you are not tied to timetables. Also if you are travelling with children then a car is a much more comfortable option.
