    Airport Bus Service Cancelled

    They did... but MonBus will take over this route as well. As far as I read Freire will no longer do these routes nd only do bus service for school children. The Santiago to Lugo route was theirs for 75 years until today.

    Airport Bus Service Cancelled

    I don't know, but my guess is that the new bus station will be the place where it leaves from. This is next to the train station.

    Airport Bus Service Cancelled

    This route will continue with Monbus. It might not operate for the next few days since this change seem to have happened very fast and they had no plan b ready... My guess that over the next few days/weeks, we will know the new hours that Monbus will operate the Santiago airport to Lugo route...

    New Low-Cost High-speed train company in Spain

    I am no expert on this, but I think the plan is that RENFE is also going to offer routes in other countries... they just open things up, so these publicly owned companies can compete all over the EU. They still need to have some sort of profitability since no state is willing to spend public...

    Iberia Cancellations and Refunds

    I think they are bussing people up to Coruña (1 hour by bus) to maybe fill up one plane .. no need to fly two empty planes to Madrid when you can fly one empty plane.. I have also heard that they are very close to close Santiago airport since they have only one or two planes a day now (as of...

    storing luggage at Santiago

    The post office themselves also offer storage (send it from the post office in Sarria, to the post office in Santiago)... I say this because their opening hours for pickup are a bit better than mine. (Except they are closed Sundays, I am open half an hour in the afternoon).

    Traveling from Oslo/Norway - starting in Sarria - how to get there?

    I would say Norwegian or Vueling to Barcelona, then to Santiago... and bus from there to Sarria. Or via Madrid as described above. God tur!
