In 2004 the airport handled 314,375 passengers and 380 tonnes of cargo. Winston Churchill Avenue (the main road heading towards the land border with Spain) intersects the airport runway, and consequently has to be closed every time a plane lands or departs. The History Channel programmeMost Extreme Airports ranks it as the fifth most dangerous airport in the world and the most dangerous in Europe.
