The IATA is located in the surroundings of the city of Valencia
(Spain) but well inside its metropolitan area and has good
transport services. Some orientative distances: 7 Km to downtown
(close to railway station and City Council), 6 Km to the airport,
2 Km to Palace of Congresses and 10 Km to the "Arts ans Sciences City"
Though we strictly are on land of the Paterna municipality, we are close
to the University Campus of Burjassot and the Valencian Television
production and broadcast center, which are in fact the best guiding
references to reach the IATA.
The first one of the telephone numbers shown corresponds to the
telephone central. Keying the second one will let you to key afterwards
the extension number of the person you want to call to, avoiding the
queue at the telephone central. You may look for extension numbers through
Personnel search link.
