Though the city of Granada attracts many foreign visitors on an annual basis, Granada airport still plays second fiddle to the much larger airport at Malaga; which takes care of all international flights for the region. Instead Granada GRX provides a scheduled traffic link with both Madrid & Barcelona (among other internal flights). Granada airport is most used by Spanish passengers visiting Granada & travelling to the coastal towns of the Costa Tropical (Almunecar, Salobrena, Motril etc), & by skiing enthusiasts on their way to the Sierra Nevada. The airport is well connected with central Granada by bus or taxi.
