It is the most important airport in the far north of Spain.

The old terminal (now used as offices), the cargo terminal and most of the airport services are in the municipality of Sondica, while the new terminal, designed by Santiago Calatrava, is in the municipality of Lujua.

This passenger terminal handles both domestic and international flights and is commonly known as "La Paloma" (The Pigeon) because of the appearance of a bird taking flight.
