About Granada Airport
The Granada Airport (IATA code GRX)serves the locality of Granada in Spain. The airport's long name is Federico Garcia Lorca Granada-Jaen Airport. It is named after a famous Spanish poet from Granada. Although the airport has Jaen in its name, it doesn't serve that city directly. The Granada Airport sits 15 kilometers away from the city center and is quite near Santa Fe and Chauchina. The airport currently flies passengers internationally, although it was initially a domestic airport. It is a single-terminal airport complete with all the facilities necessary to achieve the passengers ease of travel.
Granada Airport serves as a gateway to the Granada province, Jean and the south east of Cordoba province. The airport is small but functional and caters to both domestic and international flights from the single level terminal building.
