Did you know you can now refuel with Jet A-1 at Vélez-Málaga?

If you’re visiting the Costa del Sol in Spain this summer, you can now refuel with Jet A-1, as well as Avgas at La Axarquía-Leoni Benabu Airport (LEAX) in Malaga. The addition of Jet A-1 fuel marks our first anniversary since adding the airport to our European network last year.

A gateway to the stunning Andalucía region, the airport is located just 30km from the provincial capital city of Malaga. Owned by the prestigious Royal Aeroclub of Malaga, it features a 1km runway, so is a great alternative to Malaga-Costa del Sol airport for light aircraft. It also has a dedicated general aviation service, 81 hangars, a clubhouse with a small gift shop and a taxi service.

The airport is open from 9am to 2pm and again from 4pm to 8pm Monday – Sunday.  Preadvisal is required a minimum 48 hours in advance.  This can be done by placing an order on the RocketRoute MarketPlace app or by completing the form here.
