    Barcelona-El Prat Airport is split into two terminals. Terminal 1 is the main terminal, which was opened in 2009 and is the fifth largest terminal in the world. It’s been designed to handle 55 million passengers a year. This modern terminal has 13 00 parking spaces and 45 new gates, which can be expanded to 60. Terminal 2 is the older terminal, which was rebuilt to host the Olympic Games in 1992. Now Terminal 2 offers low-cost and regional carriers in three linked sections 2A, 2B and 2C.

    Airport Facilities

    The airport offers passengers the chance to pick up last minute travel items or visit the duty free shop before boarding their flight. Numerous restaurants and bars are located throughout the airport as well. Be sure to check out the airport directory to determine what facilities are located within your terminal.

    ATMs and wifi areas are available in each terminal. For more information, please visit one of the many information desks throughout the airport.

    How to get to and from Barcelona El Prat Airport

    The airport is located by the C-32 highway, which connects with Barcelona's ring road B20 motorway. With light traffic, you can reach the airport from the city centre within less than thirty minutes.

    If you do not wish to drive your car hire to Barcelona El Prat Airport, you can easily get there via the bus or train systems. Buses run to central Barcelona, Catalonia, Andorra, and nearby towns. The train provides connections from the airport to Barcelona and the surrounding towns as well. Additionally, there is an underground connection from Terminal 1 and 2 by Line 9 to the city centre of Barcelona.

    Parking Tips

    The Barcelona-El Prat Car Park offers passengers more than 19,000 short-term and long-term parking spaces. Parking access is convenient to both Terminals 1 and 2.

    If you are taking your car hire to Barcelona, remember to abide by the local parking restrictions. On-street parking is allowed in areas that are marked blue, but parking is usually only allowed for two hours. Most parking is paid using meters, and a pay and display scheme is in operation: once you have paid for your ticket, remember to display it clearly on your dashboard.

    Car parks often offer a more stress-free solution to parking in the city. Barcelona even offers some free car parks, such as those found close to the Zona Universitaria and Vall d'Hebron metro stations. However, you may find that indoor parks, where parking is paid, are safer. The closer you are to the city centre, the more expensive parking in these car parks is.
