Let me know of which airports you are prepared to fly from? From my experience, you will have to stop atleast once which ggeorg can testify to. For example, Iberia fly to A Coruña from Vienna via Madrid. The only other option would be via Barcelona to either Santiago de Compostela or A Coruña

Guys on the forum based in the United Kingdom have been blessed with reasonable connections to Galicia. Direct to A Coruña from London Heathrow or Santiago de Compostela via London Gatwick.

I would have to have a stop in Madrid coming from Hamburg.

The Betis match is quite interesting!

We have cheap flights from Skopje to Barcelona with the low budget company Wizz air.
Skopje-Barcelona is around 50 euros (return ticket for 4 days).
I found some cheap flights from Barcelona to La Coruna (around 70 euros for return ticket).

I thought that Wizz was the option used. Their hub in Skopje offers a big varaity of flights.

Unfortunatly from LJU there is no connection to either Madrid or Barcelona.
One monetary resonable option for me is to fly to London and then to Galicia, but that takes a lot of time.
Other decent option is Iberia/Vueling from Venice via Madrid or Barca or Zagreb with Vueling to Barca and then to Galicia, but only in summer season, starting from the end of March. It always involves a quite long transfer to the airport from my location.

If the calendar falls right, an away trip to Las Palmas or Tenerife in Segunda would be nice.

Coke's last minute goal saved Levante. 2:1 win for the Valencian team. Levante also have tough schedule. Hope players don't give up untill the end.

3 points against Sevilla is not impossible. Sevilla has matches every 2 or 3 days from now on. Especially, they play Copa del Rey final after game with us. Most of important players will be rested.

Thinking of a Camino to fit in the games away to Lugo and home to Mallorca next May. The Agony (330km walk) and the Ecstasy (watching 2 Depor games live in a week). Or should that be the other way round???

I'm seriously considering going to the Deportivo vs Zaragoza game on Dec 16th now that the date is confirmed.

Any thoughts on what I should look out for in terms of transportation from the airport, hotel recommendations or how to buy tickets for the game?

If you're flying into A Coruna airport, you can take a taxi into town (approx. 8km) for around €20. Or, if time isn't an issue, just grab a bus outside the terminal and pay a fraction of that cost to get into the main bus terminal. At the weekends, I think the buses leave the airport every hour on the hour (i.e. 14.00, 15.00, 16.00, etc.)

Don't know when you're flying in or out, or what nights you're thinking of staying, but checking in on Saturday 15th December and checking out on Monday 17th December, the Riazor Hotel is €126 (double room). Perfect location on the beach and very close to all amenities. Taxi rank outside the front door.
Or, the Hotel Atlantico is €121 (again, double room). More modern than the Riazor with a casino attached and again close to all things in the city centre.
Both rates through Booking.com.
I've stayed in both and they're both ok.

I'll leave others to advise about the tickets, but I don't think you'll have any problem getting sorted at the stadium.

Thanks a lot for the info!

Taxi info is one less thing for me to check. It's very useful considering that the flights available for me are arriving late in the evening and leaving in the morning.

For the hotel, does the team ever stay for concentration in a particular hotel?

With regard to the airport bus. Details together with the major stopping points are as follows:

Line 4051 A Coruña - Airport

This service joins A Coruña (Jardines de Méndez Nuñez) # with the airport, with stops in Puerta Real, Marina (Casino)#, Plaza de Orense#, Avenida A. Molina (Gasolinera 1*, Carrefour, Gasolinera 2, Zapateira, Coca Cola), Alcampo, Portazgo, Corveira and Vilaboa (Iglesia, Farmacia, Caja de ahorros, Casa Cultura, Floristeria).

Price

€1.50

Timetable

Monday-Friday both from A Coruña and from the airport, buses run from 7.15 am to 9.45 pm every half hour. On Saturdays they leave from A Coruña every hour from 7.30 am to 10.30 pm, and from the airport from 8.00 am to 10.00 pm also every hour. On Sundays and bank-holidays they leave every hour, from A Coruña from 8.30 am to 10.30 pm, and from the airport from 9.00 am to 10.00 pm.

# These stops are ideal for most hotels located in the central zone of the city.

* This stop (Repsol petrol station) is for the Bus Station and the Train Station (less than 5 minutes walk). I can fully recommend the hotels mentioned in Rack's post. However if you want to base yourself near the bus or train station the Hotel Avenida is highly recommended.

If you have a very late arrival together with an early departure to and from Alvedro Airport I would advise a taxi. Please note the airport is small, so you don't need to be there 2 hours before departure, unless you want to drink loads of coffee

On some matchdays they used to stay at the NH Finisterre in the old town. I'm not sure if that's the case anymore.
