UK flights operate into Santiago de la Compostela from Dublin, Liverpool, Nottingham East Midlands and London Stansted Airport over the high season summer months. . The number of destinations decrease during the winter months.
The Spanish and European airports which are served include Alicante, Almeria, Barcelona, Bilbao, Frankfurt, Geneva, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Madrid, Malaga Costa del Sol, Menorca, Milan, Palma de Mallorca, Paris, Seville, Tenerife, Tunisia, Valencia and Zurich.
The airport is only 10km north east of the city centre with buses and taxis ready and waiting to transport you there from outside the arrivals hall. There is no rail link at the airport but there is a Renfe train station in Santiago.
To cut costs a number of UK and Spanish have reduced the number of flights they are operating so if you do have definite dates that you need to travel make sure you book as far in advance as you can to make sure you can get a seat. Prebooked seats also tend to be cheaper as the nearer you get to your departure date the higher the prices.
The rise in costs has been caused by high fuel prices and ever increasing airport taxes. But at the moment the airlines are managing to keep them under control with no massive price hikes. Whether this will continue into the future is anybody's guess.
