    Compañeros,

    Watching BBC's Top Gear (AKA "Three Oafs") I saw they were filming in Granada's new airport (open 25th July). It looks like there will be direct flights from London City - any news of a Spanish Budget airline that will be operting from there?

    From the city airport you can forget budget airlines

    Yeah it's only BA (via City Flyer) so it'll definitely not be cheap.

    Edit: Just looked it up and the cheapest one-way for an adult is £240!!! That only applies for certain days and certain times using BA CityFlyer for a flight directly to Granada. Otherwise you'll be flying to Madrid and connect to a flight to Granada which'll cost you £600 odd one-way. Rather just go to Malaga and then drive to Granada from there

    I'm pretty sure that airport in Top Gear wasn't Granada...

    Well they made a quip that they would be spending the night in Granada and "...next morning..." they "...found..." a "...newly built abandoned..." airport "...10 minutes..." from where they were staying so I think my educated guess is probably correct.

    Is this good enough for the forum Faktnazis?

    I'm pretty sure that they said that the airport was something like three years old and had to close because it went bust?

    I think you've been duped by Top Gear's editing. The airport on there last week is about 200km from Granada so nothing to do with our footballing friends.

    Care to enlighten me with its name - in case it turns up in a pub quiz question?

    Compañeros,

    My mate and I were discussing going over to Granada to see a game - a couple of questions and the reason I'm asking is that neither of us speak much Spanish:

    1. It looks like it will be a flight to Malaga (it's so cheap) but looking here it looks like we can get a bus from the airport to Granada - this thing is in that list there seems to be a lot of Granada stops, which one would we want?

    2. Can someone please point me to a fixture list for Granada? Also what's the routine for buying tickets do we need a fan ID?

    Gracias

    Cheers brother, that's much better than the one I found (mine ended on february 2014).

    I've also discovered that buying tickets is through ATM's or the 'net. Exact times for KOs are given around about a week before the match.

    I'm aiming to make the match against Osasuna on 19th Jan (2014). For those interested the 'rough' figures I've got are:

    Flights Scumland - Malaga - £90 (about £45 each way, Monarch but they fly a much reduced service Thurs in, Sun out)
    Accomodation 3 nights B&B in a city centre hostel (Granada) - £60
    Bus from airport to Granada rtn - e26.

    This is looking to be "about" the same cost as attending a 'Top' :sick1: London premiershyte match.

    EDIT: I was also toying with the idea of visiting an old Gibraltarian friend of mine as it's not a million miles away - but as our friends from South Oxhey would say "Fuq dat!".
