Ryanair flies to London from the Santiago (SDC) airport.
You can get to the airport by public bus or taxi.
That sounds pretty simple. So glad I asked. ThanksRyanair flies to London from the Santiago (SDC) airport.

I guess I will need to book ahead. Its a bit hard, not quite knowing how long I will take on the Camino. The flight would be about 2 hours I imagine. Thanks for your input!Several years ago I flew from one of the outlying London airports to SCQ in the afternoon. I think it was Ryanair. Then 6 days later, returned from A Coruna to Heathrow in the afternoon on Vueling. There was some timing issue flying in and out of Santiago, but I don't remember the exact reason.
Anyway upon arrival in Santiago there was a bus to the center of town from the airport.
To depart I took the train to A Coruna then a bus from the train station to the airport in A Coruna.
Vueling was a lot nicer airline to fly than Ryanair, but that might have changed.
Ask away, people have many things going through their minds when they plan to walk, and it can seem a bit overwhelming. You will find there's often one person that will tell you to look the answer up yourself, but don't let that put you off asking. Most people are only too glad to help. Regarding your other problem of knowing when to book your flight home. A common concern. My advice would be to add 2 or 3 days to the time you think it will take you. That way you could have a break if needed or wanted. And if you arrive at your destination early you can relax until the day of your flight.That sounds pretty simple. So glad I asked. Thanks
I have read your replays for sometime now
I flew Ryanair from Santiago to Madrid this past August. I only paid 40 euros for the one-way ticket, and got charged no extra fees. My pack met the carry-on standards, but they still put it in as checked luggage for free. I checked in online a few days before the flight, and had my hotel in Santiago print out the boarding pass for me (also saved it to my phone as an upload), but did see a lot of people boarding the flight just showing their phone uploaded pass to board.Ryanair flies Santiago de Compostela to London Stansted
EasyJet flies SdeC to London Gatwick
Iberia/BA fly to London Heathrow via Madrid
Only Iberia/BA fly every day. EasyJet only flies Wednesday and Saturday at that time of year. Ryanair have 3 or 4 flights a week, you'll have to check which days.
Ryanair offer cheap flights, but then charge for everything else, including a hefty fine if you do not print your own boarding pass. Watch the weight of your cabin bag if flying with them.
EasyJet are more pleasant to fly with, and have a more generous cabin bag size allowance, but really it's swings and roundabouts with these two budget airlines.
I flew from Santiago to London Stansted 2 weeks ago with Ryanair. I was able to download my boarding pass with the Ryanair app and use that instead of a ticket. I've never been a great fan of Ryanair but it was a newish plane with extra legroom and cost only 70 euros booking a week before I flew so my experience was positive.I flew Ryanair from Santiago to Madrid this past August.

During conversations with fellow pilgrims when I'd mention I was flying back to Madrid on Ryanair they'd warn me how bad it is, rude employees, extra fees, etc. Honestly, I found it to be no different than any other small, budget airline I'd flown, and for only 40 euros, and a flight under two hours? Heck, I'd be happy to sit on a milk crate in the plane to get to my destination at that price.
For that kind of budget fare I'd fly them again in a heartbeat.
Thanks, haven't been to London for more than 20 years so good to know I can fly into Gatwick and then into the centre.You can go Easy Jet from Santiago to Gatwick, from Gatwick (if you are going into London) you can get the Gatwick Express into the centre.
I think Ryan Air also does this route but no sure what airport it arrives at.
I flew out of SdC this August with Ryanair and no printed boarding pass or even copy in my smart phone was needed. I checked-in on-line two days prior and just present my passport at the counter and that was all. Still better to have printed copy if you have a chance I guessRyanair offer cheap flights, but then charge for everything else, including a hefty fine if you do not print your own boarding pass.
