City taxi service to / from airport

Taxis from Barcelona Airport offer their services 24 hours, waiting for passengers at the taxi ranks located in both terminals.

A journey from the airport to the city center usually takes between 20 and 40 minutes, depending on several factors: a ride from terminal T1 will be longer than from T2, the final destination, the traffic conditions and the speed limits in force on the outskirts of Barcelona.
