An FBO at Girona-Costa Brava Airport, supporting trips throughout Spain
Welcome to Girona!
As Manager of Universal Aviation Spain – Girona, I am incredibly proud of the faultless service we provide, and of the beautiful region in which we operate.
We are currently the only company that is fully licensed to handle general aviation at Girona-Costa Brava Airport, where our private facilities include a VIP lounge and an operations office in the main terminal building.
Located on the Costa Brava in the Catalonia region of Spain, the airport lies on one of the country’s most stunning Mediterranean coastlines. We are also close to the ski resorts of the Pyrenees, and Barcelona is just an hour’s drive away, making Girona perfect for both business and pleasure.
My team and I will always go the extra mile to make sure that your visit is a success, and we look forward to welcoming you soon.

Directions to airport
The journey from Barcelona to Girona airport is straightforward. It is approximately 100 kilometers (62 miles), so it will take around 1 hour and 20 minutes. When you get to the Ronda Litoral (Barcelona´s big roundabout) follow the signs to C-33 road. You’ll pass a number of toll booths on your journey, which will add up to about 9 Euros. You´ll have to take a ticket at the gate and pay at the next booth. Once you’re on the C-33, look out for the blue sign for the AP7 motorway. Follow the signs all the way to Girona-Costa Brava Airport. The airport is located 11 kilometers (7 miles) south of Girona City in the small village of Vilobi d’Onyar.
Directions to office
Make your way to the passenger terminal from the main roadway and look for signage leading to the parking lot. It is faster and more convenient to park at P2. The Universal Aviation office is located adjacent to the departure/check-in area.
