Flights to San-Sebastian take you to a historic city in the north of Spain with some magnificent beaches. There are no direct flights to the compact San-Sebastian Airport. There are, however, plentiful indirect flights requiring a stopover in either Madrid or Barcelona and the option of flying to Biarritz or Bilbao direct with bus connections to San-Sebastian.
San-Sebastian Airport is the city's airport, situated about ten miles outside of San Sebastian itself, with minimal facilities and a spectacular setting on a spit of land extending into the River Bidasoa. There are regular bus services from the airport to the city centre. San-Sebastian has no international arrivals, with services only from Madrid and Barcelona for connecting flights from other destinations.

Both offer direct connections to San-Sebastian and there are direct flights offered by Ryanair, easyJet and Vueling.

When it comes to beaches, there's not far to travel since both of San-Sebastian's finest beaches are close at hand.
