Where to buy Aerobus Barcelona ticket?

Online the Aerobus ticket is at the same price as on site. We therefore advise you to make your life easier and to buy it with the links seen on this page. However, you have other solutions:

1 - At Barcelona airport:

  • You can buy your Aerobus ticket on site at ATMs located in Terminal T1 or Terminal T2, but you may lose time in case of high traffic.
  • You can also buy your ticket on board the Aerobus, but only by giving the change. The driver does not give change on a bill over 20€. You risk losing your time and that of other travelers.

2- From Barcelona city centre to El Prat airport: 

Same principle as the one-way trip.  You will find Aerobus vending machines and will also have the possibility to buy on the bus from the driver but with the same inconveniences and waste of time.

Aerobus Barcelona FAQ

Answers to your most frequently asked questions about the Barcelona Aerobus :

  • Does the Aerobus operate at night?

    Yes, the Aerobús operates at night. It operates 24 hours a day all year round, even on public holidays, from both the T1 arrival terminal and the T2 terminal to Barcelona and from the center of Barcelona to the airport.

    Please note, however, that the frequency of night transfer buses varies slightly depending on the route.

    You will find more details a little further up on this page in the section > Aerobus timetable.


    There are other means of transportation at night such as the night bus lines N16 (A2) and N17 (A1) that connect Ronda Universitat- Pl. Catalunya with the airport. More information on our Barcelona Airport pages.

  • Do I have to print my ticket to take the Aerobus?

    You do not have to print your ticket to take the Aerobus. If you have a smartphone or tablet, simply show the bus driver the PDF of your ticket - PDF sent by email just after your purchase - so that it can be scanned both ways.

  • Why do I have to indicate a date when I purchase my Aerobus ticket if it is valid for 90 days from the date of purchase?

    The date you give when you purchase your Aerobus ticket is not correlated to your trip since your Aerobus ticket is open. This is only an additional indication to make the bus service more fluid.

  • What is the difference between the Aerobus A1 and A2 lines?
    • Line A1 leaves and returns to terminal T1
    • Line A2 leaves and returns to terminal T2. 

    Be careful especially when returning to the airport so as to arrive at the terminal that corresponds well to that of your airline. In the direction Airport to the city centre the route and stops are the same for both lines

  • What are the stops of the Aerobus?

    The stops of the Aerobus in the direction : Barcelona Centre to Airport are:

    • Pl. Catalunya, Sepúlveda-Urgell and Pl. Espanya.

Airport Tickets
This site contains a link to purchase Airport Bus tickets ( Like a lamb I clicked on this link and purchased Airport to City Centre tickets. When printing them out I saw that the departure point was marked as T2. Not ideal as I arrive at T1. The booking process does not specify the departure terminal so this could be a trap!!! Support have told me that I can use these tickets from T1 but we shall see.
Hello Donata,
Don't worry about the return dates for your Aerobus Barcelona roundtrip ticket: the return ticket can be used up to 90 days after the purchase date ;-)

Enjoy your trip!
date of theround-trip ticket
I still don't know my return date - Barcelona to the airport -
is this a problem with the round-trip aerobus ticket?
Is terminal 2 back on?
Hi, just wondering is Barcelona terminal 2 back on yet? Because my flight will touch down to terminal 2. I am thinking to buy the Aerobus ticket . Thank you .
Hello Nigel,
We have just completed the entire process of purchasing a one-way ticket from the airport to Barcelona city centre (valid in both directions). The process works very well.
I invite you to try again.

Have a nice trip!
One way ticket to airport
I want to buy one way tickets from the centre to the airport but it doesn't seem to be possible to book them in advance online. So do I buy them on the bus?
Hello Lina,
The Aerobus ticket allows you to reach a few stops in the city and the city centre but not to use the metro afterward.

>> We offer a very economical combined ticket that includes an Aerobus ticket + an unlimited pass for 48 to 120 hours to Barcelona's public transport: metro, bus (TMB), urban trains (FGC, Zone 1)...
>> You can find this "Hola card + Aerobus" pass on this same page.

Enjoy your stay in Barcelona!
