Pasaia port is a key part of the supply chain for the iron, steel and car industries. Flexible, fast and safe, it is able to meet the needs of ships, crews and passengers.
Located in the centre of the Bay of Biscay, 15 kilometres from the French border and directly connected to the Atlantic Corridor of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T), Pasaia Port has become an essential tool for the development of industry, trade and tourism in its sphere of influence.
Its rail and road connections make it especially suitable for SSS (Short Sea Shipping): three regular lines of ro-ro ships link the port with Atlantic Europe, gateway to the economic common market.
Flexibility, dynamism, efficiency and safety are the foundations that underpin the activity of this port. Its primary objective is to offer its customers safety, with this safety being based on the flexibility and speed of its services, reducing the average stay and having virtually no incidents in the handling of goods.
Pasaia also offers great potential for cruise stopovers in the Cantabrian Sea. This is due to its proximity to the most visited places in Aquitaine and the Basque Country and its excellent communications with other regions by road, through the European Lisbon-Madrid-Paris axis, as well as by air, with 5 airports within a radius of around 100 kilometres: Hondarribia (Gipuzkoa), Biarritz (Aquitaine; France), Loiu (Bizkaia), Noain (Navarra) and Foronda (Araba).
Finally, for Pasaia port, operating in harmony with the surrounding area is absolutely vital since together we can tailor the infrastructure, adapt the services to new traffic and, above all, make the port's activities compatible with the urban environment.
