Alghero Airport is the most important entry point for the northern part of the island of Sardinia. UK visitors head on to popular resorts on the Costa Esmeralda. The romantic walled harbour town of Alghero is just 8km from the terminal. This is a small regional airport with a few shops and a couple of snack bars.
Recent years have seen economical direct flights with low-cost airline Ryanair. They currently operate year-round flights from London Stansted. Ryanair also operate a seasonal route from London Luton, which starts in March. The beach holiday season also sees flights from tour operator Thomson, with departures from London Gatwick between May and September.
Flying from airports outside London remains problematic. You may find indirect flights with airlines like Air France, Alitalia and KLM. These will almost certainly be much more expensive than flights with Ryanair. If no flights are available try Olbia Airport, on the northeast coast of Sardinia or Cagliari Airport in the south.
