Getting here

Madrid is served by the Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport, which is the sixth in Europe for passenger traffic and lies 13 Km from Central Madrid (Puerta del Sol). There are 4 Terminals, located in two different areas. Terminals 1, 2 and 3 (the original terminals) are in one cluster, while T4 and T4S (satellite), the more modern terminals, are located just to the north-east. Iberia and the other One World carriers use the new T4 and T4S.

The airport is served by the line 8 of the Metro, which calls at T1,2 & 3 and then at T4. From the airport it takes about 15-20 minutes to Nuevos Ministerios where the service terminates and connects with the rest of the network. The fare to the two airport station includes a small surcharge. At the time of writing (early 2016) it is known that line 8 will close temporarily for renovations but not until sometime in 2017.

There is now also a local rail service (linea C1) from T4 to Chamartín Station (11 minutes), Atocha Station (25 minutes) and then Méndez Álvaro (29 minutes) and Príncipe Pío (38 minutes). This is especially great for travellers who continue their journey beyond Madrid as Chamartin and Atocha are Madrid’s two main rail stations.

If you prefer the convenience of door to door service, then you jump in a taxi. The good news is that for journeys between the airport and destinations within the Calle 30 Ringroad, including those booked online or by phone, a flat rate fare of €30 will be charged.
