Camino Ruta de la Norte 2014
Camino Via de la Plata 2016
Hi folks, my wife and I will be travelling the Via de Palta next year in September/October. We did Ruta de la Norte last year and loved it.
So next year is the Plata, our question is whats the best/easiest way to get to Seville from Perth Western Australia. I realise that there are no direct flight to Seville from OZ.
So how are people arriving there?
Thanks
 
Rent a house in Santiago (1 month minimum)
300m from the cathedral and around the corner from the fresh food market in Santiago. Perfect place to tele commute from (1GB symmetrical connection).

Adelaide-Dubai-Madrid, train to Atocha station and Ave train to Sevilla. Should take about 26 hours :)

Yes
The connection to the train station Atocha is right at the Madrid airport.
A simple metro type link. Easy to do.
Direct train to Sevillia.

I like flying into Barcelona. Smallish airport and BCN is wonderful for a day or two rest either end of the Camino. Emirates has good flight there from Syd or Melb. Just an option

Oops. Meant to also say that you can take AVE high speed train to Sevilla from BCN. Don't forget to allow a couple of days to enjoy wandering Sevilla and enjoying the hidden tapas bars

The closest Major Airport to Seville is Madrid Barajas (MAD).

Seville is connected to Madrid by frequent train service. The is bus service to Seville from the airport.

Spains airports are operated by Aena. Each airport website has information about destinations and airlines. Several airports in Spain are connected to major centers such as London, Paris, Barcelona and Rome. However, most of these require that you travel through Madrid to get to Seville.

Lisboa is connected to Seville by bus.

As you scout out all the options, I would make sure to check the "multi-city" option, which would be flying from home to Sevilla and then from Santiago to home. You may find that it is not much more expensive than flying in and out of Madrid, Barcelona, etc. I've done that for years now and it makes my life so much easier, especially on the way home. I fly from Santiago on a 9 am flight and am in Barajas ready to catch an early afternoon flight to the US. Otherwise I would have to come in the night before, stay in a hotel, etc etc.

The fast train (AVE) to Sevilla is quick and easy and very pleasant, but it would not be as quick and easy as transferring to another flight in the airport upon arrival. Of course, you may want to visit the city you arrive in, in which case the AVE is the obvious answer. It's only if you add the internal flight on to your international ticket that the flying option makes sense, at least that's been my experience. Buen camino, Laurie

Airlines flying from Perth to Madrid with a route involving a single change of planes include:

Qatar Airways (changing planes in Doha)
Emirates (changing planes in Dubai)
Etihad Airways (changing planes in Abu Dhabi; not daily)

There are more options to fly from Perth to Madrid but they involve two changes of planes along the route but it'll be too long to list them all here. Don't disregard them though because some of them might be cheaper on a specific travel date...

Once in Madrid, you can easily reach Sevilla by surface transport (either high speed AVE train or if you are in a tight budget, a bus). Ask for details if you need them.

The advice provided by peregrina2000's of looking for fares for an open-jaw ticket (outbound: Perth-Sevilla; inbound: Santiago de Compostela-Perth) isn't a bad one if you are short of time or if you don't plan to allow yourself some time to visit part of Spain in addition to the camino you'll walk. Among the airlines flying from Perth to Madrid, Qatar Airlines is probably the best bet for such an open-jaw ticket (the legs from Madrid to Sevilla and from Santiago de Compostela to Madrid would -likely- be operated by Iberia -or an affiliate of Iberia- as both airlines are part of Oneworld) but ask a good travel agent to know what works out cheaper on your specific travel dates.

If you want to visit Barcelona and prefer to fly there, airlines making the route from Perth to Barcelona with just one change of planes along the route include Qatar Airways, Emirates and Singapore Airlines.
