Flight times can vary depending on the weather conditions and the distance between the cities. Alicante is in southeast Spain, next to the sea. A flight from a main European airport to Alicante ranges from 2.5h up to 5h. Let’s go to see the times for the most popular routes.
Flying can be time-consuming but, if you are in Europe, we have the privilege of the distances being relatively short. The most common Ryanair plane is the Boeing 737-800 and it has a cursing speed of 495mi/h (796km/h or 430kt). That is the approx distance between London and Prague covered in 1h at cruise speed. As well, most of the other airlines will use planes with a very similar cursing speed.
If you are thinking about how to go to Alicante from a far origin the plane will be your quickest way as the city is in the East of Spain. Anyhow, Alicante is a well-connected city so you can travel by road (car, bus, caravan…), plane, ship or train.
So here is how long will take you to fly from Alicante to its most popular routes.
