T1 and T2 terminals are perfectly connected to the city by train, shuttle, buses, and of course by a large number of taxis. As you will see on our pages transfer in one direction or the other takes on average about forty minutes, including waiting. It is by far one of the most easily accessible airports in the country.

How much does a transfer from the airport to Barcelona cost?

The transfer from the airport to Barcelona costs 9.45 euros per person if you take the bus shuttle bus and 5,50 euros if you take the most economical train. We have counted several other ways to reach Barcelona: private transfer, shared transfer, and taxi transfers. 5,50 euros for the cheapest transfer and a very fluid organization, that's enough to relieve stress and give you a smile before you even leave.


How is Barcelona airport?

Barcelona Airport is now pleasant and easy to use since its reorganization in 2009. A brand new and luxurious terminal the T1 and another one older but functional the T2. In both terminals, there is no missing service to the traveler as you will see on our pages: parking, shuttle bus, shops, hotels, Faqs. Only one black point in our opinion - the distance of 4 kilometers between the terminals means that you have to take a shuttle which is a small waste of time... Nothing dramatic, however, as there are so many rotations.

The "Barcelona City Pass" is a fantastic package that combines priority access to the Sagrada Familia, Parc Güell, and a ticket for the official Barcelona city Hop-On Hop-Off tourist bus. Book it now!
