Airport in Madrid

Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport (MAD) is the air transport hub for Madrid. It's the busiest airport in Spain and one of the largest flight destinations in Europe. Barajas is the base for Iberia Airlines, which is Spain's flag carrier and, has four terminals: 1, 2 and 3 are clustered close together, while the recently-constructed terminal 4 is a little further away. Barajas has flight routes between a host of European cities, and intercontinental links to numerous South American and Central American destinations, as well as airports in North Africa, the Persian Gulf and the Far East.

When you arrive in a new country after a long flight, working out the different ways to get around can make your head spin. If you feel daunted by the idea of making your way from the airport by yourself you'll be pleased to know that there are Withlocals guides in Madrid that offer airport transfers. This means peace-of-mind as you'll have one less detail to plan before your trip. And of course, locals will know the most direct routes from the airport, making sure that you'll get to your accommodation as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Public Transport around Airport in Madrid

There are several public transport choices after landing. Most visitors will simply catch the 24-hour Express Bus Service, which departs every 12 minutes by day or 35 minutes late at night. It serves central Madrid destinations such as O'Donell, Cibeles and Atocha, and costs €5. It will take about half an hour to get to Cibeles from Terminals 1, 2 and 3, and 40 minutes from Terminal 4. Terminal 4 is also on a commuter train-line, the C1, and for €2.15 you can get to the Atocha and Chamartin stations without having to change. Another option is to take Metro Line 8 (pink), but this will require two changes to get to central Madrid so is less convenient.

Kickstart Tour of Madrid with a Local

We met Patricia at the opera and we had a great tour. Beside the tour information she gave us much more background of feeling and live in Spain.
Really recommended.

Me Gusta Madrid: Alternative Side with a Local

Elena was a very friendly and informative tour guide. She showed us parts of Madrid that we would never have found ourselves. She made us feel relaxed in her company and by the end of the tour we felt we were with a good friend. I would not hesitate to book another tour with this company and would certainly recommend Elena to anyone wanting you see the real Madrid. Thank you Elena for making our visit to Madrid that bit more special xx
