Como puedo llegar de aeropuerto de Girona a El Prat? Todo lo que vi en internet me parece muy complicado porque tengo solo 3 horas para llegar de un aeropuerto a otro.
How can I get from Girona airport to El Prat airport? I need exact info mecause I have only 3 hours to get from one airport to another. Is that posible?
ryanair run a bus service into the centre of Barcelona (bus station Nord - i think )which takes about an hour and from there you can take a taxi back to el prat airport
unless any locals can give further better advise
hope you sort it
It is really complicated. Probably you bought a tickte from RyanAir because they say "Barcelona(Girona)", right? But they don´t say it is more than 100 k.m from Barcelona.
It is true that there is a coach at the airport taking the passengers to Barcelona, every time a plane from RyanAir lands...so you won´t wait too much, but it is a long way..and it is to Barcelona centre, so you must go to the airport...not a short ride(talking about time). If you go to Sans Station, there is a direct train to the airport. Every 15 minuts(more or less) and it takes 30 minuts(more or less again).
Thanx for advices, I was actually hoping that there is a direct line from Girona to El Prat :) but now I have found several ways to get there so one should work!
The most comfortable, and probably quickest combination:
1. Take Ryanair bus direct to Estació Nord.
2- Walk out, and go to Arc de Triomf RENFE Station, whose entrance is right outside. Pay special attention, look for "RENFE" platforms(railway system) NOT "METRO" (Red Line 1). Catch ANY train going southbound (direction Hospitalet/Vilafranca), as all of them stop in Sants Central Station (only two stops).
3. Change platforms in Sants Central Station, direction "Aeroport". There is a train approx. every 30 min.
Last but not least, beware of pickpockets and look after your belongings all the time.
just to point that, even called many times, the "Ryanair bus", its from an independent company: www.sagales.com
If everything goes well, you will not wait more than 15 min for the next bus upon arrival to GRO. Bust takes 1h 15 m to Estacio del Nord. From there, as said you can take a train to Sants, and from there to the airport, but be aware than trains from Sants to the airport depart every 30 min, and it will take at least another 15 min to reach your terminal. All this is theoretically doable in 3 hours, but not allowing any delay or missing any transport
Alternatively you can take the metro from Estacio del Nord to Catalunya, and there the Aerobus to El Prat (buses every 15 min, stopping in front of each terminal at the airport)
Of, if you're running off of time, for any reason (delays...), a Taxi from estacio del Nord to El Prat shoudl cost you about 35€
best of luck
there's a direct bus from girona to the el prat airport, check www.alsa.es
click on the tab saying "airport services"
Just to clarify that Alsa buses go from Girona TOWN to Barcelona airport, and that there seems to be only 3 buses per day. Therefore, these are hardly useful for someone who need to make it in less that 3 hours
