Barcelona Airport Transfers to the Girona Airport and Back

Consider our options for budget transfers to/from Girona and Barcelona

Barcelona Airport Transfers to the Girona Airport and Back

Sometimes you may not opt for El Prat Barcelona Airport and decide to fly to Girona airport instead. As you may have suspected, the Girona airport is found near the town of Girona, which is located more than 100Km from Barcelona city. This distance, of course, will make travel into Barcelona take longer.

In this case, you can opt for a bus transfer. Most flights come in on low-cost airlines, and buses schedules more or less try to coincide with arrivals and departures. You'll have transportation to Barcelona bus station Estacio del Nord, though not always at convenient times. The Barcelona Bus connects Girona airport with the Barcelona airport, as well the city at Estacio del Nord. Check the Barcelona Bus schedule here. However, you could also rent a car if you plan to do a lot of driving on your trip.

It is also possible to take a train from Girona city. However, there are a few minor inconveniences to this selection. First of all, you will have to get into Girona city before you can take the train. Also, only two regular trains depart every hour, so you may have to wait for a little even once you get to the station. You may opt to take a high-speed train (AVE), but you have to spend more money compared with regional trains. But if you are looking for airport transfers that go to the Girona airport, that is possible too.
