Catalan edition of the book “Historia del Aeropuerto de Girona-Costa Brava“.

The Girona-Costa Brava airport is a clear example of how tourism affects the development of transport and its infrastructure. In fact, it was those first tourists who came to Catalan soil, after landing in the neighbouring airports of Barcelona and Perpignan, who stimulated the development of this airport as an entry point open to the tourist areas of the Costa Brava.

With skill and perseverance, the municipal and provincial authorities, as well as the social and financial organisations of the region, supported its construction. In 1967, the project became a reality, providing a significant boost and support for tourist development and generally for the whole regional economy.

With the liberalisation of air transport, promoted by the European Union, Girona Airport has seen its potential revived, exceeding the most optimistic forecasts. There is no doubt that the contribution of its workers and investments made by Aena have made it possible to deal with this growth and maintain high expectations for future development. Consequently, the publication of this book is an opportunity to learn about this story of achievement, effort and collaboration between institutions and workers that have today made it possible to outline a promising future, full of hope, for this Girona infrastructure.
