Barcelona Airport Guide

Discover more about the airport and facilities before you arrive:

Today it is the largest airport in Catalonia, the second largest airport in Spain (after Madrid Airport) and ranks within the top ten busiest airports in Europe.

As a gateway to one of the most beautiful coastal areas in Spain, the airport is a popular choice for visitors not only to the cosmopolitan city itself but also the whole of Catalonia including popular tourist destinations on the Costa Brava such as Sitges and Tossa del Mar. Ideally positioned close to the Barcelona ring road and C32 Barcelona – Sitges motorway, it is easily accessible by bus, taxi, train or private car.

There are two main terminals at El Prat, named Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. Terminal 2 is then subdivided into three areas 2A, 2B and 2C. Each airline works out of one of the terminals, regardless of destination. So, for example, all Easyjet flights arrive and depart from Terminal 2. Passengers can easily travel between the terminal buildings on the shuttle buses which operate for this purpose.

Additionally, the airport also operates a bespoke Corporate Aviation Terminal for private flights.

In common with a large number of airports in Spain, Barcelona is operated by Aena Aeropuertos S.A. and is a popular destination for those travelling to and from other domestic airports in Spain, Europe and North Africa.

The routes between Barcelona and Madrid, Mallorca, Amsterdam, Seville, Paris, Ibiza, Malaga, Rome, London, Munich and Lisbon are particularly busy.

Around 34 to 35 million passengers choose to pass through Barcelona’s main airport each year. Spanish low cost airline Vueling has its main base there but Air Europe, Iberia, Easyjet, Ryanair, Lufthansa and Air France also operate a large number of flights from Barcelona. In total around 113 airlines operate flights to and from the airport.

At the airport itself there are a wide range of facilities available for both leisure and business travellers alike.
