Earlier you had to take the bus from Girona, a 90 minutes long journey, or Reus, almost 100 kilometeres from Barcelona when flying with Ryanair. But now Ryanair lets you fly direct to Barcelona’s main airport, El Prat (BCN), only 15 minutes from downtown. But be careful when you book on their website, because they still offer flights to the other airports as well.

Here is the new list of flights to BCN:
