New Member
Hello my name is Pepe. Im in charge of 9 uk pilgrims. I want to know what is the cheapest way to come back from Santiago to Oviedo airport, when we finish the camino. I know there are a bus company called ALSA, but due our flight time departure we can not use these service. Is any other company? or even, can we rent a mini-van with or without driver for this jurney?. Do anybody know somebody private who maybe will be interested to do this service?
Thanks Pepe
The date to this service is progamed for the next 2 of august 2012, early morning departure from Santiago -and expect to be in Oviedo airport before 13;00 hours.

Hi there,

You might ask Pedro that runs a small buss company in Melide. They have busses, small and large for these kinds of trips. I have only meet him once, and I don't know if he remembers me, but he gave me his card. At least you could get a quote from him and take it from there. He was very generous in helping the people that made the Camino Documentary ( when they were traveling along the camino a few months back.

(Not sure if he speaks english)

His contact information is:

Lo primero de todo decirte que ni Oviedo, ni Gijón, ni Avilés tienen aeropuerto.
El Aeropuerto de Asturias está en el pueblo de Ranón, y de hecho se llamaba Aeropuerto de Ranón hasta hace poco.
La ciudad más cercana al aeropuerto es Avilés, que está a unos 15 kilómetros. La única opción que tenéis para llegar al aeropuerto, que yo sepa, es el autobús de la compañía Alsa. Primero cogéis un autobús que os lleve de Santiago de Compostela hasta Avilés. Aquí tenéis los horarios de un día de la semana. ... cachetoken

Una vez en Avilés tendréis que coger otro autobús que os lleve al Aeropuerto. ... cachetoken

El problema es que no llegaríais hasta las tres de la tarde.

La otra opción es un alquiler de coches o una monovolumen. Creo que en el aeropuerto de Asturias hay oficinas de las compañías Atesa, Avis y Europcar. A ver si un día me acerco y me puedo informar de algo más.


First of all tell you that neither Oviedo, Gijón and nor Avilés have an airport.
Asturias Airport is in the village of Ranon, and in fact called Ranon Airport until recently.
The nearest city to the airport is Avilés, which is about 15 kilometers. The only option you have to reach the airport that I know is the bus company Alsa. First you catch a bus to take you away from Santiago de Compostela to Aviles. Here are the hours of a day of the week. ... cachetoken
Once Aviles will have to take another bus to take you to the airport. ... cachetoken

The problem is that it will arrive until three in the afternoon.

The other option is a rental car or minivan. I think there Asturias airport offices Atesa companies, Avis and Europcar. Let's see if one day I go and I can report something else.
