Here’s a step by step guide to arriving at Seville Airport. There are several airport transfers that will get you to Seville’s city center.
The airport is very well connected to the city and other transport hubs (bus and train stations). Moreover, the cost is relatively cheap compared to other European cities. Your decision depends on your final destination.

Additionally, have a look at how to get from the city center to the airport.
There are several options to exit the airport.
- Bus. Despite it may not always be the fastest approach, there is one bus route serving the airport. It is a good option when traveling to Santa Justa train station or Plaza de Armas bus station. Approximate cost: 4€ or 6€.
- Taxi. Definitely the most expensive and the riskiest option I can imagine. Approximate cost: 25€.
- Private Transfer. Obviously the most comfortable and fastest option. Approximate cost: depends on the people in your party.
There is no right or wrong option. It only depends on where you are lodged.
Arriving at Seville Airport: use the bus to get to the city center
The EA (Especial Aeropuerto) line buses offer a direct trip between the airport, Santa Justa train station and Plaza de Armas bus station. The buses are white with a big Bus Aeropuerto Sevilla sign on the windows.
From the airport to the city center, the Airport Express bus runs from 5:20 to 1:15.
The bus stop is outside the terminal, once you exit the Arrivals hall (floor 0) and tickets can be bought directly from the driver.
The buses frequency is between 13-20 minutes during the day and 35 minutes at night. The trip to Santa Justa should take no more than 30 minutes under normal traffic conditions.
Arriving at Seville Airport: catch a taxi to get to the city center
Getting to the city center by taxi is the fastest and most comfortable option. Moreover, it is also the most expensive despite it could be interesting if you are a travel party of at least 4 people.
The terminal has a large taxi stop and it is clearly indicated by signs located inside the terminal. All you have to do once you are in the Arrivals hall is follow the signs. The taxi stop is usually managed by the airport staff. Please stand in line and wait until you are designated a taxi.
The trip between the airport and Seville takes about half an hour but it depends very much on the traffic conditions and your accommodation location.
The journey from the airport to the center of Seville should cost 23-30€. All taxis must have a fares chart displayed inside the vehicle.
Please note that there are 3 specific fares to/from the airport:
- Fare 3: Monday to Friday from 7:00 to 21:00.
- Fare 4:
- Fare 5: During Holy Week from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday and during the April Fair, from Tuesday to Sunday from 21:00 to 7:00.
No taxi driver is allowed to charge you for your luggage, for getting to Santa Justa, or at night or during weekends. However, an extra charge can be added to this fare, if you have booked a taxi on the phone or through an app.

Arriving at Seville Airport: book a private transfer to get to the city center
At Seville Airport (SVQ), when you emerge from the Arrivals area, exit to the Arrivals hall through the sliding doors and your liaison staff member will be waiting for you, holding a sign with your name on it. He will help you with your luggage and lead you to the vehicle, most commonly a spacious, comfortable air-conditioned vehicle.
Your private driver will take you directly to your accommodation, where he will help you with your luggage to the hotel reception or apartment entrance.
While driving from the airport to your hotel, your driver will be polite and helpful, will drive carefully and observe traffic regulations, will not smoke, and will offer you complimentary refreshments (welcome after a long flight!).
Let me make this clear: this is not a common airport shuttle. You are booking your own private vehicle – it’s just for you (and your travel companions, if you have any).
Surprisingly, even though these fares are not much more than for a Seville taxi for some rides, and only moderately more for others, a private transfer is 1000% more comfortable, reliable, safe and pleasant than an Seville taxi. As such, a private transfer constitutes extremely good value for money.
