Girona Airport Mini Guide

Girona Airport is located in the north east of Spain on the Costa Brava and handles more than four million passengers every year. Also known as Costa Brava Airport, it is situated near the small village of Vilobi d'Onyar in Catalonia. It is worth hiring a car at Girona because there is so much to explore along the Mediterranean coast and of course the nearby capital of Catalonia, the magnificent Barcelona.

Many visitors to Barcelona use Girona as an alternative landing point. Once you have picked up your hire car, it is only 10 kilometres to get to the Pyrenees and 90 kilometres to Barcelona.

Girona Airport has something in the region of 2,000 parking spaces distributed over the car parks P1, P2 and P3.

The car park is controlled by a 24-hour security service and customer assistance. Entry is through the single access point, consisting of two entrances. There are two exits for leaving the car park.

The main roads around the airport are the E15/AP 7 toll road, the C25 from Lleida, and the N11 toll free road which goes from Madrid to France via Barcelona.

The main airline to use Girona is Ryanair which has a plethora of flights to Europe, but you can also take Thomas Cook or Thomson airways to and from Britain, Transaero to Moscow and Transavia to Amsterdam. Jetairfly, Smart Wings and Wizz Air use Girona too.

Girona is classed as one of the fastest growing airports in Spain and there may be future developments to expand it to cope with passenger numbers.
