Welcome to Barcelona El Prat Airport

Air traffic control tower Barcelona El Prat airport

Barcelona El Prat Josep Tarradellas Airport is located 12 km (7.5 mi) southwest of the Barcelona 6 metres above sea level, between the municipalities of El Prat de Llobregat, Viladecans and Sant Boi.

The airport has recently been renamed and receives its current name in homage to a Catalan politician, although it is still known technically as Barcelona-El Prat Airport. It also receives other popular nicknames such as Aeropuerto del Prat or BCN airport. It is the second largest international airport in Spain, after Madrid-Barajas International Airport, and is the first in Catalonia and the Mediterranean coast. In 2018, Barcelona Airport beats the record of 50.2 million passengers and ranks sixth with the most passenger traffic in Europe.

The airport has 3 take-off and landing zones, thus obtaining 3 runways in service, two in parallel called 06L/24R and 06R/24L, and a cross, runway 02/20.

It has two passenger terminals, terminal T1 and terminal T2. Recent changes in the structure of terminal T2 have meant that what used to be three different terminals, terminal A, terminal B and terminal C, are now united in a single terminal, terminal T2.

The route of Madrid-Barcelona air bridge -or air shuttle- continues to be the route from Spain with the highest passenger traffic.
