How to get from Barcelona Airport to the city centre

Barcelona Airport is around 14 km away from downtown, and several transportation modes are available. Public transport includes buses, metro and trains, but many tourists find it confusing to use, so taking a taxi is another option.

Barcelona Sants Train Station is the most utilised transportation centre in Spain, located in the western part of the city. It handles domestic and international trains to the most popular destinations like Bilbao, Valencia, Madrid, Seville, Paris and Malaga. The international bus station with the same name is adjacent to the railway station. Metro line (L3) and local bus line L5 run between Barcelona Airport and the train station.

Barcelona taxis take about 30 minutes to reach the city centre, depending on the drop off address and traffic conditions. The regular metered taxis would charge between €30 and €40 whereas a private Barcelona airport taxi costs €37. By booking a private transfer, you will avoid waiting in queues and save time.

Barcelona airport taxi to the city centre

Taxi service is without a doubt the most efficient and favourable way from Barcelona Airport. Look for the signs pointing to the nearest taxi ranks to guide you outside the airport buildings to the ramp down at Terminal 1. If you arrive at Terminal 2, you can take a taxi on the road, section B. Barcelona airport taxis operate 24/7, and they are easy to spot due to their black and yellow livery. Usually, a uniformed attendant will assist passengers with which taxi to board. Metropolitan Taxi Institute governs and regulates taxi rates and all surcharges displayed in each vehicle.

The estimated fare to downtown is €30- €40 depending on the departure terminal, and the journey to the city centre takes between 20 to 30 minutes. Travelling from Terminal 2 adds five more minutes and extra 5 kilometres to your transfer.

Shuttle buses are available for transfers between the terminals and the train station.

R2 Nord Line runs to the city centre, and the journey takes 30 minutes with stops at Passeig de Gràcia and Barcelona Sants Estació, 4 km away from the city centre. As the trains are most of the time late, consider adding some extra time.
