Google Maps says that it's a 2 hour walk, 49 minutes by bus, or 18 minutes by car (taxi)

My interpretation of Google maps says walk East from the PNA parking garage (no sidewalk) 11 minutes, catch the NO3 bus running up PA31. Ride that about 10 stops get out at Plaza Fueros, walk the rest of the way to the bus station.
I guess the worst that could happen is you missed a turn and had to call an Uber.

There used to be a special bus covering the airport and the train and bus stations. No longer. There was a number to call to get a bus fare price with a taxi TO the airport but probably a regular taxi from the airport to the bus station.

Here's an edited version of something I wrote a few years ago.

  • The Pamplona airport is south of the city, near Noián. It is about 5 km away. The Rome2rio.com website says that the taxi fare may be $10 - $12. However, I think the fare may only be around 5€.

  • The route between the stations and airport seems to be a recent service and, in case the route is discontinued, you can use, with more inconvenience, a regular street bus. [Edit: yeah, as mentioned, no bus now.] Pamplona's bus line 16 doesn't stop at the airport but passes by it and should only cost a bit over a euro. This route passes through Noián and has a stop across from the Pamplona bus station. To get this bus use the airport exit road until it meets the main road, Travesía Noián. Cross this main road and then turn to face the airport. Now decide what bus shelter you want to go to. You can go north (to your right, following the traffic in the lane closest to you) or south (to your left, walking toward oncoming traffic.) From Google street view it looks like the trip to the south is more interesting.

Thank you all for your help! It was suggested I start my Camino from Pamplona. So, I’ve decided to do that and now am looking for a place for the night, where to pick up my credentials, and not sure where to start walking. Thanks!!

I too am flying into Pamplona (June) to spend the night. My plan is take a taxi to the Tourist office, which is on the camino. Follow that backwards 15 minutes to one of four albergues and check in. Then visit Hemingway's hang out, Cafe Iruna, and walk where the bulls run in July.

All that can change, I'll be watching for your report!

If I understand you correctly, you now have time to walk in to town. Why not? The following is a google translation of the final entry stage into Pamplona, from the Eroski guide.
You will be able to check out the onward route in a few places - Caminoteca, the albergues - in fact, Casa Paderborn, the first one, is easily accessible, but remember that the following day it will be the furthest point on your way out. It isn't much, but this a tip for when you get to the location where you will stay - research the albergue or other lodging that will be nearest to the start point for the following day!
A kilometer and a half later we cross the Magdalena bridge over the Arga river. At the exit, on the left, is the detour to the Casa Paderborn hostel. The Camino continues to the right towards a passage regulated by traffic lights. We continue through the moat of the walls, specifically next to the Bastion of Our Lady of Guadalupe, to cross a drawbridge and the portal of France, from the year 1553. This leads to the streets of Carmen, where on the right sidewalk we have the private hostel Casa Ibarrola, and the Navarrería. At the end of the latter, the signs encourage us to turn left onto Calle de Curia, where the Caminoteca is located, a shop specializing in material and products for pilgrims. Then we turn right onto Calle Compañía, where the Jesús y María hostel is located
Buen Camino!

First one in 1977 by train. Many since then by foot. Next one ASAP.

Respectfully, you should spend at least one day, and more if you can manage it. Pamplona is one of the great cities of Europe, with a seemingly inexhaustible number of historic churches, wonderful plazas, restaurants and bars, fine museums, lovely parks and vistas... There's even a supply store for pilgrims!

When I die I'm not going to Heaven, I'm going to Pamplona!

And -- may I suggest that you check out the hotels and pensions in the heart of Pamplona's tapas zone, on or near the Calle St. Nicholas? Some are quite reasonably priced, but they fill up quickly.

Thank you! I will research staying near Calle St Nicholas and enjoying the city for a few days.

I'm thinking about using luggage transport. I will start the Camino in Pamplona on March 22. Correos doesn't start until April 1st. I tried looking on the Jacotrans site, it doesn't seem to work...
Hi, I was going to just do the last 100kms in 2020 but of course canceled due to pandemic. In 2021 & 2022 my sister (walking partner) couldn’t get the time off (nurse). I was just laid off & after...
Has anyone flown on Condor Airlines, and if so how was your experience? They have a decent price and good routing to fly into Paris for my Camino this year.
