Huelva to build international airport

The Spanish city of Huelva has finally been given the go-ahead to build an international airport.

The city has officially been in talks with the Spanish Ministry of Development over plans for a new airport since 1999 and permission has finally been granted to private company Agricola el Pintado SL to build a 350 hectare airport, valued at around 350 million Euros.

Huelva province includes the western Costa de la Luz and is one of the sunniest parts of Spain’s coastline. It also borders the Portuguese Algarve, an area that has seen massive property prices surges in recent times. Currently, the closest airports are at Faro in Portugal, or Seville, both of which are an hours drive from many of the area’s key resorts. When the new airport has been built, many of the resorts will be just 15 minutes drive from the airport.

Currently, Huelva has one of the lowest percentages of foreign visitors in comparison to other stretches of Spanish coastline and the new airport could dramatically change these figures. This is all good news for property investors in the area as tourism in the area is expected to increase, and it is predicted that property prices will also see rapid growth over the next few years.

Huelva is one of the up-and-coming areas for golf tourism in Spain therefore it may be wise to invest in a property which is close to one of the top golfing resorts. With the announcement of the new airport, it is expected that more properties will be built in the area so getting in quickly before the rush will probably see the best return on investment.
