Discover the Basque Country

Basque Country – UK, Flights Twice a Day

Good news for those visiting the Basque Country from the UK–from the 29th of March 2015, British Airways will fly twice a day out of London Heathrow Terminal 1 into Bilbao, and word has it that Vueling will also be increasing their London Gatwick flights to Bilbao.

Once you arrive at Bilbao Airport (Loiu), there are buses into Bilbao city and an hourly bus outside arrivals will take you to Donostia-San Sebastián (with an optional stop in Zarautz upon request).  The ride to Donostia-San Sebastián is one hour and fifteen minutes, and tickets can be purchased on-board (in cash) for 16.50 Euros.

On the way back from San Sebastián to Bilbao Loiu Airport, purchase your ticket from the PESA office situated in Sancho el Sabio Hiribidea or at the PESA website, remembering to select Loiu Aireportua (not Bilbao, which would take you into Bilbao center).
