Girona-Costa Brava Airport
First explain something about the spelling of Girona. We keep the Catalan spelling here, but in Spanish the place is spelled as Gerona. The full name of the airport is Girona-Costa Brava.
Girona Airport is located in northeastern Spain, 12 kilometers outside of Girona City and 100 kilometers from Barcelona. It is an important airport for tourists who want to go to the Costa Brava or Barcelona and it is also the gateway to the Pyrenees, north of Girona. Thanks to the arrival of the Irish budget airline Ryanair in 2003, the importance of Girona increased. Ryanair uses Girona as a hub for connections throughout Europe. The number of passengers was the highest in 2008, when about 5 million people arrived at the airport. The popularity of Girona-Costa Brava had fallen sharply in 2015. Fewer than 2 million passengers arrived at the airport.
