Is there a post office in Bilbao airport ? I would like to ship my extra bag to Ivar in Santiago de Compostela , I will arrive Bilbao next Monday ( september 9 ) and then busing to Oviedo later that day, not arriving Oviedo until 6 pm, so I think to be prudent I should find an open post office in Bilbao, ideally at the airport. Anyone know if there's one ?

Too many and too often!
I think not. But Google says that the central post office near the main Bilbao railway station is open from 08:30 to 20:30 Monday to Friday, with shorter hours on Saturday.

I suggest waiting till you get to Oviedo and walking from the bus Station to this post office. Google says it is open until 8.30pm. You can check that in the Correos website. Screenshot_20190904_081523_com.google.android.apps.maps.jpg

As you will start walking from Oviedo, I recommend bringing the bag to be shipped there, then using the Correos to ship the bag to Ivar. The bus from the airport is easy peasy... I made this journey this past May...airport to Oviedo. Oviedo is an easy city to manage.

Hope this helps.
