Girona Airport is located 13km from the town of Girona. The airport is ideally placed for the beautiful beaches of the Costa Brava and the popular resorts of Platja D’Aro, Calella, Esartit, Playa de Pals, Pineda de Mar, Malgrat and Blanes. Girona also serves resorts on the the Costa Dorada like Salou, Cambrils, La Pineda and Sitges. The airport offers access to Spain’s best-known theme park, Universal Port Aventura. It is also a useful entry point for the eastern Pyrenees and ski resorts in Andorra.
In common with Reus to the south, Girona is often included in a list of Barcelona airports. Do note that Girona Airport is 57 miles north of Barcelona. However, bus services to Barcelona are designed to link with the arrival of Ryanair flights from the UK. Intense competition between charter and low-cost airlines means some of the lowest airfares to Spain. Flights tend to be more expensive during the summer school holiday period. Many of the best deals are found in early spring and autumn. It is always worth booking as well in advance as possible.
The best deals are usually found with low-cost airline Ryanair. Girona is a major hub airport for Ryanair. They currently operate routes from Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Doncaster Sheffield, Manchester, Newcastle, London Luton and London Stansted. The availability of flights increases during the long summer season, when UK tour operator Thomson provides charter flights from regional airports like Birmingham. Some routes may be seasonal. These may begin as early as April or May. Others operate only in the peak summer months.
