About Gibraltar Airport
Gibraltar International Airport
In 2017, 571,184 passengers travelled through Gibraltar International Airport, an 4.2% increase on 2016. The United Kingdom and Morocco are currently the only source markets in terms of air service, presenting extensive opportunities for establishing links to the rest of Europe. Our terminal building, opened in 2012, also showcases our ambition to connect Gibraltar and the catchment area to the rest of Europe as well as the UK regions.
A unique city break destination packed full of culture, history and tax free shopping, Gibraltar is located at the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula. The self-governing British Overseas Territory borders Spain to the north and, across the Strait of Gibraltar, Morocco to the south. As well as a holiday hotspot, Gibraltar is the only EU Offshore Business Hub offering Financial Services, Maritime services and E-Gaming as its main economic sectors. Gibraltar's GDP per capita ranks as one of the highest in the world. Fully compliant with European standards of regulation, the 10% corporate tax rate continues to encourage international companies from basing themselves in this attractive, modern and vibrant low tax jurisdiction.
A Strategic Catchment Area
Gibraltar's strategic location still continues to bring its advantages in modern days. At the meeting points of the Costa del Sol and Costa de la Luz regions in Southern Spain, our new terminal is only a two minute walk from the border with Gibraltar's northern neighbour. This places us as a desirable and alternative entry point to the region. Both coastlines, apart from traditional tourism also comprise an established second homes market in addition to a varied diaspora of resident European nationalities. Every year, between 50-60% of passenger arrivals continue 'in transit' to the nearby region, highlighting the strength the airport already possesses in its catchment area.
