Ryanair Destinations in Spain in full

Ryanair flies to 16 destinations in mainland Spain, as well as two destinations in the Canary Islands, one in the Balearics and two in Portugal, making Ryanair one of the best airlines in terms of number of destinations in Spain.

They are: Madrid, Valencia, Alicante, Murcia, Almeria, Granada, Seville, Jerez, Malaga, Santiago de Compostela, Valladolid, Santander, Vitoria, Zaragoza, Barcelona, Barcelona (Reus), Barcelona (Girona), Palma Mallorca, Tenerife North, Tenerife South and Fuerteventura.

However, the way Ryanair advertises some of their destinations can be confusing for those not familiar with the geography of Spain. Ryanair describes its flights to Reus and Girona as 'Barcelona (Reus)' and 'Barcelona (Girona)' respectively, despite these airports being 100km from Barcelona.

According to a report on the BBC in August 2007, Ryanair got in trouble for being 'misleading in their claims' in an advertisement about costs and travel times for travel between London and Brussels as they 'hadn't flagged up' the distance between the airports and the city centers and the costs incurred traveling between the two.
