Europcar @ Girona airport

Hi,

I am correct in thinking that their desk is not within the airport terminal? Is it located within the ground carpark beyond the multi-storey block?

We went to the Banyuls aquarium a few years ago, has it been extended? One of my brothers hasn't been to the one in Canet , that is why it is on the list this year.

Flights for 2018

Hi, This is one for Dimidu66

Any word as to when the Aer Lingus flights will be available for booking? For 2017 they were up by this time in 2016.

Hopefully they will start earlier and end later in the year.

Perpignan Airport

Hi all,

Arrived Sunday afternoon on the Aer Lingus flight, all the work looks to be completed, Car-hire now back in main building. The airport looks very well.

Hopefully you will now be able to attract additional flights and also to extend timetables well into October.

2nd update

The Taxi Co who recently advertised on this site quoted €60 to €65 depending on traffic. I suspect if the flight is delayed that a waiting charge might also apply. That said the Aer Lingus flight tends to be on time.
