Barajas Airport

The Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suarez Airport is strategically located just 12 km away from the city centre. It has four terminals, and it is possible to transfer between terminals using buses that are free for all passengers.

Terminal 4 is divided into T4 and T4S (Satélite). You can transfer between them using the train between terminals with an approximate journey time of four minutes.


Travelling to the city centre by taxi is the most convenient but also the most expensive option. To take a taxi, you must go to the designated taxi stop located at the exits of each one of the terminals.

The final price for your ride should be indicated by the taximeter. Therefore, we recommend that you make sure that driver starts the meter at the beginning of the trip and it shows the minimum rate or initial service. It is possible to request your invoice once you arrive at your destination.

There is now a fixed rate of 30 € euros from the airport to any central location (within the M-30 ring-road).

Metro (Underground)

The metro is still the quickest, most effective transport for arriving at the city centre. It is easy to use from any of the terminals. The entrance is located on the first floor of the T4 and the first floor of the T2 in the connection corridor with parking lot P2.

There are various types of tickets and a fare called “Servicio Especial” from the Aeropuerto T1, T2, T3 and Aeropuerto T-4 stations. For travellers using a Transport Pass or Tourist Travel Pass, it is not necessary to pay this special fare.


  • Multi Public Transport Card: 2,50 € (This card can be purchased from the ticket machines at any Metro station)
  • One-way Metro ticket : 1,5 – 2 €, depending on the number of stations involved)
  • Airport extra charge: 3 €.
  • 10 trips ticket: 12,20 €
