How often is the train from Ronda to Granada on schedule?

We have an Iberian flight to catch at the Granada airport at 19.00 on September 29 (Monday), and the train schedule lists a train that leaves Ronda at 14.11 and arrives in Granada at 16.47. Will we have enough time to get to our flight on time? How often does this train keep to schedule? How long does it take to get from the Granada train station to the airport? How far in advance should we buy our train tickets? Thanks in advance.

There is an old saying that goes "two things in Spain are always on time, trains and bullfights". It's pretty much true today, so I wouldn't worry much about arriving in Granada on time. You shouldn't have any problems getting from the train station to the airport, which is about 12 km out.

Thankfully this is a small regional airport, so checking in, getting your boarding pass and clearing security is fairly easy, depending on how busy the airport is. The gates usually close at least twenty minutes before departure.

The train station is fairly central, located at Avenida de Andaluces off Avenida de la constitución.

You can take a taxi or the airport bus.

You should purchase your Renfe tickets as soon as they become available, which should be now. The tourist class ticket is €12.25/person, one-way.

Agreed.

The train to Granada is a local 'Regional Train' that stops a few times on the way. Not essential to book but why not.......

The taxi from the rail station should not take more than 30 minutes.

If the train is very late there may be a later flight to your destination ? But it won't be.
