Barcelona El Prat Airport

Josep Tarradellas Barcelona–El Prat Airport also known as El Prat Airport, is an international airport located 12 km (7.5 mi) southwest of the centre of Barcelona, lying in the municipalities of El Prat de Llobregat, Viladecans, and Sant Boi, in the Autonomous community of Catalonia, in Spain. It is the second largest and second busiest airport in Spain behind Madrid-Barajas Airport, and the seventh busiest in Europe.


In 2018, Barcelona Airport handled a record 50.2 million passengers, up 6.1% from 2017. It is a hub for Level and Vueling, and a focus city for Air Europa, Iberia, EasyJet, Norwegian and Ryanair. The airport mainly serves domestic European destinations, also having flights to North America (United States and Canada), South America (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Peru), Middle East (Israel, Lebanon, Iran, Jordan, United Arab Emirates and Qatar), Asia (Pakistan, China, South Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong), and Africa (Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Gambia, Ethiopia and Senegal). The Barcelona–Madrid air shuttle service, known as the “Puente Aéreo” (in Spanish), or “Pont Aeri” (in Catalan) literally “Air Bridge”, was the world’s busiest route until 2008, with the highest number of flight operations (971 per week) in 2007. The schedule has been reduced since February 2008, when a Madrid–Barcelona high-speed rail line was opened, covering the distance in 2 hours 30 minutes, and quickly became popular.

Its facilities include:

258 check-in counters

60 jetways (some are prepared for the A380, with double jetway)

15 baggage carousels (one new carousel is equivalent to 4 carousels in the old terminal) and

12,000 parking spaces, in addition to the 12,000 already in terminal 2.
