Just like Bilbao itself, the airport in the city has also undergone a facelift in the past few years, in 2000 the new terminal started to be used. It is a design from architect Santiago Calatrava and represents a flying dove. The building has two levels. The Departures Hall is on the second level and the Arrivals Hall on the first. The number of passengers transported are growing so fast that this terminal will probably be too small in a few years.
Bilbao Airport particularly processes domestic flights, almost 75% in total. The national Spanish airline also has connections to international destinations, but most international travelers use the budget airline EasyJet. Ryanair uses the airport from Santander, west of Bilbao.
