The local airport is La Coruna Airport (LCG) with flights from most major UK airports, (Iberia as Vueling definitey fly there) though it can be cheaper to go via Madrid and flight times can be better, so make sure you check out the various options.

Owain was in Valencia last season as a supporter (If you were at the Ponty v Rest of the World beach football match, he was the young man scoring all the goals), and is excited to be part of the squad this time around.
