Barcelona El Prat Airport is just 14km from the city of Barcelona and is the main airport of the region of Catalonia where it greets some 35 millions (and rising) passengers each year. It’s not the biggest airport in Spain, falling short only to Madrid’s Madrid Barajas airport, but it is a hub for Spain’s Iberia airlines, Ryanair and Air Europa. It’s a popular airport for many reasons, not least because of its proximity to Barcelona, but also because of the access it affords to the ski resort of Pyrenees.

Barcelona Airport - A Short Guide 

 


Barcelona Airport, or El Prat Airport, is 14km south West of Barcelona and it serves many of the world’s largest airlines such as British Airways, Iberia and Air Italia, alongside budget choices like Easyjet and Ryainair. There are a couple of other airports that service Barcelona: Reus Airport and Girona Airport, but both of these are more than one hour’s drive out of the city, which compared to the 30 minutes it takes from El Prat seems like quite a lot. Once you arrive at the airport, one of the first things you’ll probably look for will be the car hire desks. You’ll find them in both terminals one and two, both in the arrivals halls. If you’re collecting from terminal one, then you’ll need to head to one of two car parks behind the rental desks, and if you’re collecting you rental car from terminal 2, then you’ll find the car park directly across from Terminal 2B. 


If you need to stock up on Euros, then you’ll find cash machines throughout the airport, starting at the baggage reclaim area. The airport’s two terminals are 4km apart and are subdivided into three separate buildings which are simply referred to as - A, B and C, which are connected by a free airport shuttle bus. If you’re flying through the airport with a connecting flight, then it’s best to check which terminal you’ll by flying out of and give yourself a little extra time to get there - it’s recommended to allow at least 30 minutes between terminals - just in case you have to wait, or if there is any congestion. As with all major airports, you’ll find a very good selection of bars, restaurants and shops awaiting you in both the departure and arrival lounges - so you’ll easily be able to get a last minute souvenir, quirky gifts for friends and family, some duty free alcohol or one last holiday meal before you head home. 


The airport itself is located right on the coastline and it offers up some nice views as your plane touches down on Spanish soil. If you’re heading directly into Barcelona then all you need to do, after picking up your hire car, is to exit the airport on the B22 and out on to Av. Autovia Castelldefels and finally follow the B10 all the way into Barcelona. The drive in is a nice opportunity to take in the beautiful crystal clear waters of the waterfront as you’ll drive parallel to the coastline for much of the journey. If it’s winter and you’re planning on driving from Barcelona to the Pyrenees then you can expect a scenic drive into the mountains that will take approximately three and a half hours to complete - but it’s worth the drive as the Pyrenees Mountains, that form a naturally stunning border between France and Spain, are some of the most beautiful in Europe, awash with natural peaks, ruins and incredible views out across miles and miles of, depending on the season, snow capped mountains and charming towns and villages nestled either in or besides the mountains.
