Bus to Alicante from the airport?

I'm flying to Alicante next month with easyjet. The flight is due to arrive at 11pm. Some websites say the last bus from the airport to Alicante is 11pm, others say midnight. Does anybody know the definitive answer?

If the last bus is at 11pm, is a taxi likely to be the cheapest way of getting to Alicante?

Many thanks.

There was a thread a little while ago and someone who had just returned said the last bus is at 11pm.

You should be able to get a taxi okay, I think the cost is roughly 20 euros.

We have never used the bus, we stay in Campello and we always book a private transfer, we are going on holiday Thursday and thought we would do a dummy run when we are there with the tram/bus to see what it was like,so will let you know.

The last C-6 bus from ALC airport to central Alicante is at 11pm.

The timetable is here but they have mislabelled it in English

From the Spanish version you can see it is the second timetable that shows departure times from the airport.

If your flight arrives early (minimum 20 minutes) and you can be first out of the doors and leg it to the exit there is a chance you can make the bus.

The exit at El Altet airport should be at the far right with the airport building behind you. Cross over the road to the next road running parallel to the first one you crossed. This is on a higher level. The bus stop is just there. It takes about 30 seconds to get there from the actual airport exit.

The longest part is all the corridors and slopes you need to navigate between the aircraft and the exit point.

Otherwise, the taxi is a bit more expensive from the airport into Alicante than it is from Alicante to the airport. This is because only taxis from Elche can pick up passengers there and they charge more (higher tariffs and the 'away from district' rate). You'll also be charged a bit extra because it is past 10pm.

Assuming no major traffic jams, expect to pay around 21Euros from ALC airport to central Alicante. It's a few Euros cheaper in the other direction.
