All information about Barcelona El Prat airport- BCN

Where is Barcelona Airport?

Barcelona El Prat International Airport (code name BCN) is located 15 km south-east of the city centre of Barcelona (airport location map) . Every year, more than 47,2 million passengers pass through it (2017 data).

 

How to reach Barcelona city centre from airport?

Barcelona airport is very easy to reach for both arriving and departing passengers. 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 in 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 5.90 euros per person if you take the bus shuttle bus and 2 euros if you take the most economical train. We have counted several other ways to reach Barcelona: private transfer, shared transfer and taxi transfers. 2 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 reorganisation 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 traveller as you will see in our pages: parking, shuttle bus, shops, hotels, Faq's. 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 your airport transfer – Barcelona airport to city center (round trip by aerobus), priority access to the Sagrada Familia, Parc Güell and a ticket for the official Barcelona city Hop-On Hop-Off tourist bus. City Pass from 69.50 €

    There has to be a way to reach the airport lost and found service by phone. No one else will be able to help if the items were left there and found but them. Try this phone number. Objetos perdidos of Terminal 2: +34 93 259 6440 from 9 to 13:00 and 16:00 to 20:00 It is recommended to persevere and give the more details about the lost object as possible. I am not sure if this phone is for the Terminal 1 as well or not.

  9. Poussette perdue à l'aéroport de Barcelone le 17/08/2012 - Sandra (21 Aug 2012 - 19:45)



    Le 17 aout 2012, nous avons pris un vol sur la compagnie Vueling vol VY 3519 de Ibiza à Barcelone arrivée à 17H10, Terminal 1 afin de nous rendre chez nous à Paris (Barcelone-Paris vol VY 8091).

    Nous avons enregistré nos bagages ainsi que la poussette de notre fille à Ibiza numéro d'enregistrement de la poussette 2838446.

    Nous devions la récupérer à Barcelone sur le tapis des bagages mais nous n'avons pas eu le temps car nous devions prendre un autre vol pour rejoindre Paris Orly VY 8091.

    Pouvez-vous nous dire ce que nous devons faire pour récupérer notre poussette ? Est-il possible de nous l'envoyer par transporteur ? Je vous remercie par avance de votre aide.
