You can fly between Girona airport and the Alghero Sardini airport in Cerdena, Italy, with the low cost airline Ryanair. The airport is located 10km northwest from Alghero city.
Ryanair is the only airline that has direct flights between Spain and Cerdeña. Alitalia flights from Barcelona to Alghero but always stops in Roma. Ryanair offers some of the cheapest flights in the world, and is the most frequently used airline from Girona airport, flying to 55 different destinations. The flights are basic, but given that their prices are so reasonable, you can´t complain.
The staff are reported to be friendly and helpful. There´s also a priority boarding option which will allow you to choose an exit seat if you want more leg room.
Due to the fact that the Alghero airport is so close to the city, to take a taxi is a good option. However, there is a bus (number 9) that runs between Alghero airport and the city train station every 30 minutes.
There are often delays reported with Ryanair, but with so many flights this is inevitable and they have no more delays than other budget airlines. As with most budget airlines there´s no frills, so don´t expect a great choice of food, or seat reservations.
People complain about extra fees for baggage, as they charge 10 euros per kilo for every piece of luggage over 15kg. This is more expensive than other airlines like Easyjet, who have a 20kg limit and charge less for excess baggage.
