Transport from Finisterre to Santiago airport

On April, I plan to complete my camino, to reach Finisterre as last stage. The next day, I have the flight from Santiago airport leaving at 1.30pm, so I need to reach the airport earlier than noon. I couldn't find any bus from Finisterre direct to Santiago airport. There is a bus from Finisterre to Santiago town, but the earliest arrives at 1pm, so it is no feasible. Do you have any suggestion? A taxi seems to me too expensive. Thanks

Since I travel on Sunday, first bus is at 9:45am and arrives at 1pm. More than 3 hours (!) for 80 km of distance, as it travels through muxia and other small villages.
 
We had a similar problem in that our travel was on Sunday, and there is no early bus that day. We ended up changing our route to Muxia, as there is an early morning bus to Santiago that day. ( as we are walking between the 2 it didn’t make much difference)

The bus from Muxia leaves at 7:30, and is a 90 minute trip maybe a cheaper option would be to taxi from Finnsterre to Muxia and catch that bus
That's a good suggestion. Thank you. Indeed, the bus from Muxia leaves at 7:30am and is much faster and direct than Monbus. I assume that wouldn't be a problem to book a taxi in Finisterre.

Last fall I needed to travel from Muxia to Finisterre on a Sunday, but no bus transport was available. The albergue gave a recommendation for taxi service the evening before and even called to make the reservation for the exact time we wanted. The cost was €30 for the ride from Muxia to Finisterre, and I was fortunate to split it three ways with two other pilgrims. If you know where you will be staying in Finisterre, per haps they can make the reservation for you.

Your lowest cost option though is to take the late bus (7pm ) on Saturday night from Finnesterre to Santiago, and spend the night there
Yes, but I would arrive to Santiago at 10pm, 3h travel time, ... not very convenient.

You are going to have a difficult time getting to the Santiago airport in time if you try to reach it the same day from Finisterre via bus.
