Girona Costa Brava Airport - GRO

from wiki

Girona-Costa Brava Airport (IATA: GRO, ICAO: LEGE) (Catalan: Aeroport de Girona-Costa Brava, Spanish: Aeropuerto de Girona-Costa Brava) is an airport located 12.5 km (7.8 mi) southwest of the city of Girona, next to the small village of Vilobí d'Onyar, in the north-east of Catalonia, Spain.

It is well connected to the Costa Brava, Barcelona and the Pyrenees.
The airport was built in 1965, but passenger traffic was modest. The early 2000s saw passenger numbers grow spectacularly after Ryanair chose Girona as one of its European hubs. In 1993, Girona Airport dealt with only 275,000 passengers; but in the six years from 2002 to 2008 passenger numbers increased by nearly ten times from just over 500,000 to more than 5.5 million. In 2010, around 4.8 million passengers passed through the airport.
On the ground floor there are 33 check-in desks, with 11 boarding gates on the first floor for both domestic and international flights. You will also find a food gallery in the departures area of the airport and a few shops.
Many people use Girona Airport as an alternative airport for Barcelona, though the airport is 92 km (57 mi) north of Barcelona. Passengers can transfer to Barcelona by bus or taxi from the airport or by train from Girona railway station. Many car hire companies are also available at the airport terminal. Barcelona city centre can be easily reached in 60 minutes from the airport by road.

Valencia Airport - VLC

From wiki:

Valencia Airport in Manises (IATA: VLC, ICAO: LEVC), also known as Manises Airport, is the 8th busiest Spanish airport in terms of passengers and second in the region after Alicante. It is situated 8 km (5.0 mi) west of the city of Valencia . The airport has flight connections to about 15 European countries and 4.98 million passengers passed through the airport in 2011.The airport has one terminal and one runway. The former runway 04/22 is not in use and has no ILS but has a helipad at the southwestern end.
Valencia airport is situated adjacent to the Autovía A-3 highway which connects Valencia with Madrid and is also close to the Autovía A-7 coastal route to Barcelona. It is connected to Valencia by a regular bus line (MetroBus) which takes 45 minutes, while the shuttle service (Aerobus) to city centre takes 20 minutes. The metro network (lines 3 and 5) also connect the airport to the city centre (15 minutes), the Railway Station and the Port.
A new regional terminal, expanded car parking facilities and apron area have been recently constructed in time for the 2007 America's Cup. The runway has been also lengthened by 50 m (160 ft).
It is the main base of Iberia’s regional carrier Air Nostrum.
Irish low-cost airline Ryanair used the airport as a hub since 2007 but decided to close it in November 2008 following a row over subsidies by the airport authorities. Since then the airline has continued to operate out of Valencia but as a relatively large destination airport, and not a base. Ryanair later announced on 23 June 2010 that it would re-open its Valencia base with 2 based aircraft and 10 new destinations from November 2010.
