Madrid Airport Information

Madrid Airport (aka Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport, or Madrid–Barajas Airport) is a massive international airport serving the Spanish capital. It's Spain's busiest airport, and the third busiest in Europe. The airport is 9km away from the financial district (great for business travellers) and 13km from the city centre (city breakers, take note). Aer Lingus, Iberia Express and Ryanair all offer flights from Ireland to Madrid.


Terminals at Madrid Airport

Madrid Airport has five terminals – T1, T2, T3, T4 and T4S. An underground train connects T4 with T4S, and takes around 3 minutes to complete the journey. A bus runs from the low cost car park and connects T1, T2 and T3 to each other. A free shuttle bus connects T4 and T4S to the other three terminals.


Shops at Madrid Airport

Each terminal at Madrid Airport has its own selection of shops selling duty free, Spanish souvenirs, magazines and sweets. Shops also include designer brands like Bulgari, Carolina Herrera and Salvatore Ferragamo.


Restaurants at Madrid Airport

You won't go hungry at Madrid Airport. Dining options include Spanish favourites like 100 Montaditos, Mas Q Menos, and the Mahou sports bar. Seafood fans will love the Kirei by Kabuki sushi restaurant in T1 and T4, while lovers of Iberico ham can't miss a munch in La Bellota.


Lounges at Madrid Airport

There are six business lounges at Madrid Airport, with at least one in every terminal. The Cibeles lounge in T1 and the Neptuno lounge in T4S are reserved for those flying on non-Schengen flights (including those to Ireland). Puerta de Alcalá in T2 and Puerta del Sol in T3 are reserved for domestic and Schengen passengers only, as is the Plaza Mayor lounge in T4. If you want to use the Premium Lounge in T4, you need to book in advance.


Getting to Madrid Airport


Madrid Airport is well connected by road, and is located just off the M-40 ring-road around the city. It's best to download a sat-nav app onto your phone, as navigating to and from the airport can be quite complicated. Car hire at Madrid Airport is available from Hertz, Firefly, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Europcar, InterRent, Sixt and Goldcar.



Metro line 8 runs from every terminal to Nuevos Ministerios station in the city centre. From here you can pick up onward trains to your final destination. Metro tickets cost €4.50 to €6, depending on how far you're going.  There's also a train station in T4, where you can hop on the C-1 train to the city centre. One way tickets cost €2.60, and returns are €5.20.



Three bus lines run from the airport into the centre of Madrid:

·         Route 101 from T1, T2 and T3 to the Canillejas Transport Hub (€1.50)

·         Linea Express 203 from all terminals to Atocha railway station (€5)

·         Route 200 from all terminals to Avenida de America (€1.50)



Taxi ranks are located at the arrival and departure areas of all Madrid Airport terminals (apart from T3, where they only wait outside the arrivals terminal). There's a flat rate of €30 for trips to Calle 30. If you're travelling for less than 10km from the airport, and haven't booked your taxi in advance, you'll pay no less than €20. Otherwise the standard city taxi rates apply.
