, commonly referred to as IBZ, which is the airport code used by all airlines and travel websites. 95% of the people who arrive or depart through Ibiza or Formentera in Spain use the Ibiza airport, making it an extremely busy airport during various seasons.
During the months of May through October, the peak season of the Balearic Islands in the western side of the Mediterranean Sea, the airport sees more traffic in a single month than it does in the other six months combined.

There are flights that depart year round to various hubs including Barcelona and Madrid. During the tourist season, there are also many flights to Palma de Mallorca and many others.
The Ibiza Airport was first opened during the Spanish Civil War as a temporary airport for the military. It remained open after the war as an emergency airport and was later transformed for tourist airports in 1949. It then closed in 1951 and re-opened in 1958 due to the high demand of tourist traffic into the Balearic Islands.
Over the years, the Ibiza Airport has expanded tremendously with different runways and taxiways. By the 1990s, the airport was seeing over three and a half million passengers each and every year. By 2010, the airport was handling over 5 million people and somewhere around 57,000 aircraft movements, which is an increase of over 10% from 2009.
