The nearest airport is A Coruña airport (LCG), which is connected to Madrid, Barcelona, Lisboa, London/Heathrow. To get to the venue using public transport from A Coruña Airport, use the Airport-City Center Bus line (Line 4051 Puerta Real - Aeropuerto), stopping at Bus Station (Estación de Autobuses), from there you can get a taxi or taking a bus nearby to the venue (UDC bus line).

Another near airport is Santiago de Compostela airport (SCQ), which is connected to Madrid, Barcelona, Brussels, Dublin, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Geneva, Basel/Mulhouse, Milan/Bergamo, Paris/CDG.
