Many visitors to Seville arrive by air at Seville's San Pablo Airport (SVQ), located 10km east of the city. Although the airport is small it is well linked to the rest of Spain and to Europe by Iberia, Vueling, Spanair, Air Europa, Air Nostrum, Air Berlin, Brussels Airlines, TAP Portugal, EasyJet, and Ryanair. For a map of the airport and other useful information, see AENA (Spain's airports) web: www.aena.es.
Transport to the city is by bus, taxi or rental car; the journey to the edge of the old city usually takes about 20 mins.
Tussam's EA bus stops outside the Arrivals main door--along on the left; it runs about every half hour; the fare is 4.00€, ( 6.00€ return on same day) . The main stops are Santa Justa railway station, Avenida Carlos V which is near the Prado de San Sebastion bus station and good for the University Rectorado (old tobacco building), the Alcazares, and Barrio Santa Cruz. Then (after January 2013) continues around to Plaza de Armas - Calle Torneo - which is on the west side of the old city centre.
Since May 2012 you can also swipe your TUSSAM TARJETA MULTIVIAJE plastic card that you may have bought to pay a lower fare for the ride .
