Thomas, you are right, Gerona (sorry folks, I'm an old Spaniard
) is the biggest airport for those tourist areas at the Costa Brava. However, it's mostly low yield tourism (look at Lloret de Mar). There are not many flights to Gerona. Add to that, that Ryanair markets this as Barcelona. I wonder, why they don't market this as "Costa Brava Airport" or something like that.
BTW, I would love to have a ZRH-GRO connection ....
EDIT: Gerona-Barcelona in 45 Minutes? Hmmm, our taxi had from Lloret de Mar to Barcelona (more or less the same distance) about 2 hrs!!!!! Don't forget, you're not alone on Barcelona's street, specially during rush hour
2nd EDIT: even the train needs more time. The shortest connection I found from Gerona to Barcelona is 1:15 hrs. Add to that the time you need from Gerona airport to the railway station in the city center.
