How to get to the Barcelona-El Prat Airport by public transport

How to get to the Barcelona-El Prat Airport by public transport

To get to or leave Barcelona airport there is a wide range of public transport options, including buses, the L9 Sud metro line (terminal T1 and terminal T2), and the Rodalies de Catalunya R2 Nord railway line (terminal T2).

Integrated travel tickets allow combined travel with other modes of public transport (metro, tram, Cercanías de Cataluña, FGC, metropolitan, interurban and night buses).

With these modes of public transport you can travel almost anywhere in Catalonia.

Tickets can be purchased:

  • At terminal 1 at the airport: at the tobacconist and inside the L9 Sud metro station.
  • At terminal 2 at the airport: inside the Rodalies (R2 Nord) railway station and the L9 Sud metro station.

  • L9 South provides a service to different districts of El Prat de Llobregat, L'Hospitalet de Llobregat and Barcelona; it links facilities like Fira (the trade fair centre), Mercabarna and the university area with the two El Prat airport terminals and connects with the FGC and Rodalies de Catalunya rail services, the Trambaix and the metro and bus network.

    The Aeroport T1 and Aeroport T2 metro stations are closed at the entrance and the exit, so you must validate your ticket to get in and to get out.
