The Costa Brava and Girona Airport are no strangers to tourism and, come the summer months, are well prepared for the deluge of low-cost Girona flights that bring happy holidaymakers from the UK and Europe to enjoy all the region has in store.
It is a pleasant two-hour flight to Girona from the UK, give or take 20 minutes depending on where you fly from.
On a cloudless day (in summer, the chances of that are pretty high), the view over the Pyrenees and shimmering blue Mediterranean Sea are simply breath-taking – you’re going to want a window seat!
Low-cost airlines rule the skies over the Costa Brava, offering cheap flights to Girona in 2016 direct from cities around the UK.
Flights to the Costa Brava usually take off from May onwards, as the season hots up, and run until the end of September.
Jet2 has the most direct flights to Girona in 2016, with several departures a week from Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast, Leeds, Newcastle and, new for 2017, flights from East Midlands Airport.
Ryanair offers cheap flights to Girona from Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham and a number of other regional airports in the summer, as well as flights from London Luton, London Stansted, and Bournemouth.
Add to that Thomson Airway’s departure choices – London Gatwick, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Glasgow – and there is no excuse not to compare and book a Girona flight for summer 2016.
Getting to your resort on touch down is a doddle. Visit our how to get around the Costa Brava page to find out more about transfer options.
While Girona flight prices are often similar from one budget airline to another, be sure to compare not only the price of the seat but also the cost of added extras.
Baggage, extra legroom, on-board meals, plus baby and sporting equipment are usually additional, and the costs can vary greatly from one company to another.
Having said that, the airlines are old hands at transporting sporting gear such as golf clubs, bicycles, scuba equipment and windsurfers, and offer some excellent prices to do so.
While Girona-Costa Brava is the obvious choice of airport to fly to during the summer months, it is also worth noting that Barcelona-El Prat International Airport is a good alternative.
Located about two hours south of the Costa Brava by car or bus, this airport is a major Spanish hub and hosts countless airlines including British Airways, Iberia (the Spanish national airline), easyJet, Monarch, Norwegian and Air Europa.
For those wanting to visit Girona and the Costa Brava out of high season in 2016, flights to Barcelona are a good option and certainly worth comparing.
