In case you haven't already realised, Andorra doesn't have an airport. This means you need to look for flights to nearby airports including Barcelona, Girona, Lleida and Toulouse. You can use the search tools on the right to find your flights - the Sky Scanner tool searches across many airlines.
When selecting your flights, you need to make sure that transfers are available from your chosen airport after your flight has landed. Visit the transfers page to find out more information.
By far the most popular airport for independent holidaymakers heading to Andorra, Barcelona is used by a wide range of budget and traditional airlines but for those of you looking for shared airport transfers there are seven daily services between Barcelona airport and Arinsal (six in summer).
A much smaller airport with not as many flights to choose from, during the ski season there is one transfer daily on Friday, Saturday and Sunday bewteen Girona and Arinsal, however it does benefit from being on the Spanish side of Andorra so the transfer route is much better.
There are limited flights into Lleida and no shared transfers, so if you fly to Lleida you'd either need to rent a car or book a private airport transfer.
You will find a good range of flights arriving into Toulouse but make sure you check available shared transfer times, there are three daily shuttle services during the winter. It is also important to note that in instances of extreme snow conditions the access road between Toulouse and Andorra can be closed which leads to cancelled transfers. If this happens you would need to make your way to the Spanish side by car or public transport.
When putting the cost of your holiday together, with the budget airlines make sure you remember to add extras such as your luggage and ski carriage if you have your own equipment. Obviously for a ski holiday most people end up bringing lots of warm clothes which take up plenty of room in suitcases! If you're unsure about what to bring you can take a read of our 'what to wear' guide. If you have your own skis or snowboard then also check your chosen airlines' luggage guidelines to see if you're allowed to pack clothes in the same bag as your equipment.
On short haul routes such as flying to Barcelona from the UK then traditional airlines such as British Airways are becoming much more competitive, especially once you've added on extras such as luggage and snacks or drinks on the flight. You'll often find a wider choice of flight times too so it can be very useful when planning flights to match up with transfers.
