Travel to Granada
The Granada-Jaén airport, the Aeropuerto Federico García Lorca, is located approximately 17 kilometers from the city center. While Granada's airport doesn't handle many international flights, it is very well connected with bigger airports that do (Madrid, Barcelona, London, Milan, etc.), so you should have no problems if you're coming from a distance.

Transport to / from the Granada Airport
Once the plane sets down, you have a two viable options for getting to the city. Just outside the airport you're sure to find a fleet of taxi-cabs awaiting new arrivals. A cab ride from the Granada airport to the center will probably yield a fare of between € 15.00 and € 25.00 depending on where exactly you're going, traffic, etc.
Option B is to take advantage of Granada's bus system, which has a route that connects to the airport. For just a few euros, hop on the bus which will stop just outside the arrivals area- look for signs. The bus route is as follows: Airport - La Caleta - Avenida de la Constitución - Gran Vía (next to School venue) - Palacio de Congresos.
The international airport of Malaga (about one and a half hours away by road or rail) offers better connections and further options.
By car, Granada is due south of Madrid (about 4 hours away by road or rail) on the E-5 and E-902 highways; while Barcelona (about 9 hours away by road or rail) is northwest along the E-15 and A-92N. There are several trains a day from Madrid (including a night train) and one train a day from Barcelona. Buses go from Madrid’s Estacion sur de Autobuses to Granada, and there are 14 buses a day from Málaga.
