Book your Transfer to Barcelona El-Prat Airport

Barcelona, the vibrant and bustling capital of Catalonia, attracts millions of tourists every year. As soon as you land at the Barcelona-El Prat airport, your exciting journey begins. To help you smoothly navigate the journey between the airport and the city center, we have created an extensive guide covering various transportation options available.

Transfer Options Available at Barcelona Airport

There are several transfer options that cater to different travelers' preferences and budgets. The choice is yours: taxis, aerobus, airport train, bus, metro line, airport shuttle, or private transfer services are readily available 24/7. Each option has its own benefits, so read on to find out which one suits you best.


One of the simplest ways to reach the city center is by taking a taxi from the airport. Taxis are abundant at the airport, with designated taxi ranks located just outside both terminals (T1 and T2). There's no need to worry about haggling over the fare, as Barcelona taxis run on a metered system. The approximate cost for a single ride from the airport to the city is around €25-35, and it usually takes around 30 minutes for the trip, depending upon traffic conditions.


If you're looking for a quicker public transport option, consider using Aerobus. This express shuttle service meets all flights arriving or departing the airport, running every 5 minutes during peak times and every 10-15 minutes off-peak. It commences operations from 5 AM and concludes at 1 AM, making it convenient even for late-night arrivals. Fares begin at €5.90 for a single ticket, and the travel time is approximately 35 minutes. Aerobus offers free WiFi onboard and has ample space for luggage. The service connects passengers to city center stops like Placa de Catalunya, which is ideal if your accommodation is within walking distance.

Airport Train

Another popular public transport option is the airport train service, RENFE, which operates every half an hour from Terminal T2. Tickets can be purchased at the station itself, and it takes around 25 minutes to reach Barcelona Sants (city center) station. A regular one-way ticket costs €4.60, while a T-10 ticket allows ten trips on multiple public transport systems in the city. Note that you'll need to take a shuttle bus from T1 to T2 to access the train service since there isn't a direct connection available.


The most economical option for budget-conscious travelers is probably the airport buses, specifically line 46. Operating from 4:50 AM to 11:50 PM daily, line 46 makes several stops throughout the city center and terminates at Placa d'Espanya. Single tickets cost €2.15, but this amount can be reduced further by using a T-10 card. However, keep in mind that the journey with line 46 takes longer than other alternatives, clocking in at around 40-60 minutes. Additionally, it might not be suitable for those with heavy or bulky luggage.

Metro Line

Barcelona's L9 Sud metro line is another practical way of traveling between the airport and the city. It runs from 5 AM to midnight from Monday to Thursday, until 2 AM on Fridays, working over the weekends non-stop. The journey takes about 32 minutes to reach the city center stop, Zona Universitaria. Moreover, you can interchange at other metro lines to access various areas within the city. A single airport ticket costs around €4.60, yet using Hola BCN! travel card permits unlimited journeys on Barcelona public transport with different validity periods, making it cost-effective for your entire trip.

Private Transfers and Airport Shuttles

If you're looking for a more personalized or luxurious experience, private transfers from the airport are also available. Options include pre-booking a shuttle, limousine service, or hiring a chauffeured car. The services require reservation in advance and typically cost upwards of €40, depending on the distance and type of vehicle desired. Private companies often provide a meet-and-greet service at the arrival area for added convenience. Choose this transfer option if you want to avoid crowded public transport and need extra help with luggage.

Taking Transfers into Account When Planning Your Trip

By providing detailed information about the various transportation options available between Barcelona’s airport and city center, we hope that we have made planning your visit easier. Remember that the type of transfer service you choose will depend on factors such as budget, time constraints, and personal preferences. Ensure you check schedules and timetables beforehand, keeping additional requirements like mobility needs or excess luggage in mind.Take note that during high tourist seasons, heavy traffic might cause longer waiting times for buses and taxis. Thus, factoring in enough time for possible delays would be prudent. And finally, always remember to validate your tickets before boarding public transport to steer clear of unwanted fines.
