Ciudad Real International Airport is strategically situated 12 kilometers away from the city of Ciudad Real and 18 kilometers from Puertollano.

Connected to the Spanish highway infrastructure, with a short 15 minute drive to two High Speed Train (AVE) Stations (Ciudad Real and Puertollano).

The High Speed Train (AVE) borders the property and plans have been developed to build a Train Station for both cargo and passengers.

The AVE will communicate Ciudad Real International Airport with downtown Madrid in 50 minutes. The train (AVE) goes to the South of Spain, from Madrid to Córdoba and Sevilla and it has also a connection with Malaga. There is also a conventional train line that goes from Madrid to Badajoz and connects the airport with the southwest of Spain.

Bordering the Airport there are some of the major gas and oil pipelines and major Power Transmission Lines

The airport is also close to the conventional train Madrid-Badajoz

The strategic airport location: CRIA is in the center of the Iberian peninsula and close to Madrid (190 km)

Ciudad Real


Ciudad Real International Airport can be found in the province of Ciudad Real (Castilla-La Mancha) a short distance from the capital city, Ciudad Real (74.727 inhabitants) and Puertollano, the most important industrial city of the province (50.608 inhabitants).

The airport facilities are located between the towns of Ciudad Real, Villar del Pozo and Ballesteros de Calatrava. They all belong to the region of Campo de Calatrava

The region of Campo de Calatrava can be found in the centre of the province of Ciudad Real. It is one of the most well-defined areas of Castilla-La- Mancha, both geographically and historically, not only because of its numerous volcanoes, being the largest volcanic area in the Iberian Peninsula but also because of the foundation and development of the Calatrava Military Order, a powerful force in the historical evolution and structuring of populations in the area

The CALATRAVA CULTURAL PARC integrates and adds value to the heritage, beautiful landscapes, cuisine and other cultural resources of a considerable part of the region, which are offered as exceptional tourist attractions. We can highlight and recommend to visit the following places:

Theatrical performances are frequently held here and there are guided tours with audio guides or tour guides. The Spanish National Theatre Museum (Museo Nacional del Teatro) also has its headquarters in this town
