To something more than 10 kilometers from Barcelona we find the Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat Airport (@aena). It is the second largest international airport in our country behind the Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport, which last year saw pass through its facilities more than 50 million passengers.
Road trip by private car
If you want to go by private car, write down these indications. If we take as a reference a specific point such as the Plaza de España in Barcelona, for example, we will follow the entire Gran Vía de Les Corts Catalanes in the direction of Hospitalet de Llobregat. We continue our way through the Avenida de la Gran Vía de l’Hospitalet in the direction of the town of El Prat de Llobregat.
Without any loss, the car circulates along the entire Avenida Autovía de Castelldefels until a fork takes us to take the B22 road which takes us directly to the airport. Once there, we choose the best route to go to the departure or arrival area if our idea is to pick up a passenger who is arriving on the next flight.
To leave the vehicle in the area with total comfort and safety they have car parks for long stays, as well as others called express that allows you to park the necessary minutes to drop off a person who is going on a trip or pick up a family member or friend who is returning. If you want a more personalized service, they have VIP parking near the boarding gate. There you deliver your vehicle and on your return you will have it ready waiting for you.
Another option is use a taxi But remember that there are different rates if we do the journey during the day or at night. In addition, supplements may be applied for uploading more bags than established. For example, that journey that we have made from the Plaza de España would cost approximately a little more than 20 euros on weekdays and above 25 on holidays, nights and weekends.
Using public transportation
If it is more convenient for you to use public transport, you have several options to get to the airport very easily. So, if you opt for the subway, you must take the line L9 Sud, which connects the two terminals of the airport with the University Zone.
If your idea is to take the train, the Cercanías service, through the line R2 North, connects the airport with Barcelona, as well as with other towns in the Catalan region.
In the case of buses, it is possible to get to the Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat Airport by bus metropolitans (connects the terminals with the center of Barcelona), intercity (which can communicate this aerodrome with Catalan populations and even Valencia or Teruel) or to international lines that connect the airport with Andorra, Geneva and several French towns.
