Nearest airport:

By taxi:
Taxis are easily available at the airport. They cannot be hailed, but rather passengers must wait in line at marked taxi areas at both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. There is a supplement fair of €3.10 for catching a taxi from the airport and the taxi rate is different during the day (8am to 10pm) and late at night (10pm to 8am). There is also a minimum charge of €20 for taxis leaving the airport, regardless of the length of the journey. A typical taxi is between €30 and €35 to the city centre.

By train:
The L9 line (orange line) connects both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 of the airport to the city center, however, students will need to change to the L1, L5 or L3 lines. A one-way ticket is €4.50. You also have the option of buying a monthly unlimited pass for €52. The metro runs Sunday to Thursday from 5am to 12am (midnight), until 2am on Friday night and 24hs from Saturday to Sunday.

By bus:
A cheap way to get to the city centre is to take the Aerobús. It leaves the airport every 5 minutes and takes about 35 minutes to get to Plaza Cataluna (with multiple stops along the way). Rates start at 5.90€. There is also a public bus that reaches the airport (bus 46) that leaves passengers in Plaza España and costs standard bus rates (single bus is 2.15€ or use unlimited pass).
