Serving as a gateway into Spain’s historic riverfront city of Girona, the Girona-Costa Brava Airport is primarily accessible via seasonal flights provided by charter airlines. The airport consists of a single terminal facility with two levels. All of the ticket sale desks and check-in counters are located on the Ground Floor. All domestic and international flights operate from the First Floor of the terminal building at Girona-Costa Brava Airport.
Ryanair is by far the busiest airline company at Girona-Costa Brava Airport. This Irish low-cost carrier is the only company that operates year round scheduled flights between the city of Girona and other European destinations. The regular scheduled trips by Ryanair are mostly to regional airports throughout Europe and not to the largest metropolitan areas. Bremen, Bologna, Dortmund, Eindhoven, Manchester, Pisa, and Turin are connected to Girona-Costa Brava Airport all year long.
During the peak season, Ryanair connects Girona with large European cities such as Bratislava, Brussels, Gdansk, Krakow, Milan, Stockholm, and Tallinn. In addition to offering flights to London, this major Irish airline also takes passengers to large U.K. cities such as Bristol, Birmingham, Doncaster/Sheffield, and Newcastle upon Tyne. By offering trips from Girona to Cork and Dublin, Ryanair offers direct flights to some of the largest cities in the company’s home nation of Ireland.
Since Ryanair dominates the timetables at Girona-Costa Brava Airport, all other charter airlines offer very limited service at this popular Catalan City. Thomson Airways, which is the biggest charter airline company on the planet, connects Girona to some of the busiest U.K. airports in Birmingham, London, and Manchester. Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium offers direct flights to the Belgian capital city of Brussels. This Belgian carrier is part of the Thomas Cook Airlines brand, which is a major British charter airline. Belgium’s largest city is also accessible via Jetairfly, a modest size Belgian airline company.
Thanks to Transaero, Girona-Costa Brava Airport is linked to the largest airport in the Russian Federation. This major Russian airline offers direct trips to Domodedovo International Airport in Moscow. The Dutch low-cost carrier Transavia links Girona with Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
Two airports in Ukraine’s capital city are connected to Girona-Costa Brava Airport thanks to Windrose Airlines and Wizz Air Ukraine. Enter Air provides charter flights between Girona and major Polish cities such as Katowice, Gdansk and Warsaw. Serbia’s national airline Jat Airways offers direct flights to the Serbian capital city of Belgrade.
