Travelling

By plane

The main way to get to Corunna is by plane. Two options are available.

Option 1. Local airport

La Coruña airport (LCG) (a.k.a. Alvedro) is the recommended option, since it is just 8km away from Corunna downtown. Most flights will connect through Madrid or Barcelona. There may exist direct connections to other European capitals like London (Heathrow), Paris or Lisbon, but they usually have a limited frequency and may vary along time. Check updated information at the Alvedro destinations webpage maintained by AENA (the Spanish Civil Airports Network).

There exists a bus connection to the city (every 30 minutes on work days and every 60 minutes on the weekend), but taxis are cheap and more comfortable.

Option 2. Santiago de Compostela airport

A second option you may consider is Santiago de Compostela airport (SCQ) (a.k.a. Lavacolla) which, despite of being 65km away, it allows more flight combinations. Check the updated list of destinations maintained by AENA.

For connection from Lavacolla to Corunna, the simplest method is a taxi (it may cost around 50-60 euros and take 45 minutes) and, of course, could be a good solution if you travel in a group. Otherwise, you can pick a bus to Santiago train station (25 minutes) and then a train to Corunna (30 minutes). The total cost can be around 10 euros and the total time may vary depending on the bus and train timetables.
