At the top of the escalator is a cafe and a small newsagent. This newsagents used to be a tobacconist but isn't any longer.

Alicante Airport Tobacco

Where to buy tobacco cigarettes at Alicante Airport?

You can no longer purchase tobacco at the newsagents at the top of the escalator in departures. If you are looking for a tobacconist then tobacco is sold in duty free. Tobacco / cigarrettes are also sold in the car park of Terminal 1. The shop is located right by the car park exit pay booths.

Alicante Airport Shops

Departures lounge

Once past Security you enter into the middle of the Departures lounge. There are a great variety of shops located here. You can see from this picture which shops there are in departures.

Alicante Airport VIP

VIP Lounge

The VIP Lounge is open from 06:00 to 23:00 Tel: 966 919 149. This is located just along from Burger King and opposite Bentleys Bar.

General Facilities

The following facilities are also available:

  • Post Box
  • Tourist information desk
  • Plenty of W.C.'s. Ladies - I have always found that the toilets at the far end of the Departures Lounge (continue on past Duty Free) are the quietest and there is rarely a queue.
  • Chapel
  • Bureau de Change


A doctor is on call 24 hours a day and there is a Farmacia (Chemist) in the Arrivals area of Alicante Airport Terminal1.

And finally..........A little bit of information for you smokers! Officially you are not allowed to smoke within Alicante Airport, however my mother (a smoker) tells me that you might like to check out the activities behind Bentley's Bar (although you didn't hear it from me!)
