Getting to Spain and getting round
Spain is a
big country, and distances can be long; driving from
Northern Europe to Spain is a time consuming operation, which explains
why the majority of British or German tourists visiting Spain prefer to
fly and then use some form of local transport - hire
car, bus, or train.
Spain is very well served by scheduled flights from Britain and the
north of Europe. Consult the websites of the following airlines, among
others, for route maps and timetables: Flybe, British
Airways,Jet2, Ryanair and
There is one major international
airport in Spain, and that is Madrid.
Madrid has worldwide connections, and
connecting flights to domestic airports throughout Spain, including
some not served by any international flights. A second and expanding
international hub is Barcelona,
now served by direct flights from the
USA, Canada, Russia, and Asia.
In addition there are busy -
or not-so-busy - airports all along the Spanish coast, particularly on
the Mediterranean. The major airports on the Mediterranean coast are Barcelona,
Alicante and Malaga,
all of which
are served by scheduled flights and charters from a whole range of UK
and north European airports. Smaller airports are located on the
Mediterranean coast at Girona
- in Catalonia - , at Valencia,
Almeria. There are also two inland airports in southern
Spain, served by international flights; Sevilla (Seville) and
Naturally, all of the main Spanish islands also have well-served
airports; Ibiza, Palma
de Mallorca, Tenerife, and others.
Along the north coast of Spain, there
are airports at Bilbao,
Santander, Oviedo, La
Santiago and Vigo
- though these are not served as well as the airports
in the south.
Spain even has an airport that for a long time
had no flights ! Castellon airport on the Costa
Ahazar stood idle for
years, and still has no daily services - just a few sporadic flights

transport in Spain
has Europe's most extensive network of high-speed railways. AVE
lines link Madrid with Seville, via Cordoba, and with Saragossa and
Barcelona and Paris in the north east.
Where there is no AVE service, the train in Spain
is a relatively slow-moving beast, and many Spaniards will prefer to
use the country's good network of long-distance bus services. These
services - by air-conditioned coach - link most big towns and cities,
and offer fast and comfortable transport, which is above all cheap and
good value for money.
