Seville Airport’s official name is Aeropuerto de Sevilla-San Pablo, so people refer to it as “San Pablo” to make it shorter. The IATA airport code for Seville is SVQ.
It’s located 10 km (6.2 mi) northeast of the city center and it handles 6+ million people per year. In addition to this, almost 20 airlines operate here and more than 80 routes are served.
The Seville airport was renovated recently and it offers a good range of services for its medium size. Obviously, its main advantage is that delays happen less often than in major hubs (don’t think your flight will be always on time though…). And your baggage is delivered pretty fast.
