Girona Costa Brava Airport (GRO)
(Girona, Catalonia, Spain)
Located just 12 km / 7.5 miles south of Girona (Gerona) city centre and next to both Riudellots de la Selva and Vilobi d'Onyar, Girona Costa Brava Airport (GRO) is the gateway, not only to the beautiful Costa Brava, but also to the majestic Pyrenees and the Catalonian capital of Barcelona. Since Ryanair made it one of its European destinations, the airport has experienced an upsurge in passenger numbers and now serves more than four million visitors each year.
Girona Costa Brava Airport features regular services to all parts of the UK and Ireland, as well as to major EU cities. The airport is well poised to continue its growth as one of Spain's busiest aviation hubs and is positioned just off the AP-7 tollway, which runs from northern France to south-west Spain. Costa Brava Airport is also situated near to the C-25 and the N-II highways. This network of routes ensures fast access between the airport and Girona (15 minutes), Costa Brava (15 minutes), Barcelona (up to 90 minutes) and into the Pyrenees.
Local buses connect Costa Brava Airport with all main cities, towns and resorts in the area, such as Girona, Blanes, Mataró, Perpignan, Pineda de Mar and Tossa de Mar. Commercial Ryanair shuttles run to the more popular tourist destinations, including Barcelona. Plenty of taxis are on standby outside of arrivals and can be pre-booked, being a convenient way to reach less well-known towns, such as Begur, Palamós and San Feliu de Guixois.
Avis, Europcar and Hertz all offer reliable car hire services and have counters located outside Arrivals. There is ample parking at Girona Costa Brava Airport, with two large surface lots complementing the new two-level parking garage and around 2,000 spaces in total.
