Welcoming you to Gibraltar...
A unique city break destination packed full of culture, history and tax free shopping, Gibraltar is located at the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula. The self-governing British Overseas Territory borders Spain to the north and, across the Straits of Gibraltar, Morocco to the south. As well as a holiday hotspot, Gibraltar is the only EU Offshore Business Hub offering Financial Services, Maritime services and E-Gaming as its main economic sectors. Gibraltar's GDP per capita ranks as one of the highest in the world. Fully compliant with European standards of regulation, the 10% corporate tax rate continues to encourage international companies from basing themselves in this attractive, modern and vibrant low tax jurisdiction.
Gibraltar International Airport Today
In 2012 387,219 passengers travelled through GIB, a 1.1% increase on 2011. The United Kingdom is currently the only source market in terms of air service, presenting extensive opportunities for establishing links to the rest of Europe. Our brand new terminal also showcases our ambition to connect Gibraltar and the area to the rest of Europe and the UK regions.
An Enviable Catchment Area
Gibraltar's strategic location still continues to bring its advantages in modern days. At the meeting points of the Costa del Sol and Costa de la Luz regions in Southern Spain, our new terminal is only a 2 minute walk from the border with Gibraltar's northern neighbour. This places us as a desirable and alternative entry point to the region. Both coastlines, apart from traditional tourism also comprise an established second homes market in addition to a varied diaspora of resident European nationalities. In 2011, 61% of passenger arrivals continued 'in transit' to the nearby region, highlighting the strength the airport already possesses in its catchment area.
A unique destination combining Business and Financial Services, city break stays, and access to a world class tourist region, Gibraltar International Airport welcomes European airlines to discover the possibilites that some of Europe's leading low cost and full service carriers already enjoy.
It's much more than you can imagine.
