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.

Madrid Highlights & Tapas Tour

Thanks so much Enrique, I totally enjoyed our nighttime tapas walking tour! Enrique was willing to specialize an evening tour of Madrid with lots of sampling of tapas and fine wine. I’m a fast walker and Enrique was willing to cover a lot of ground and really show me lots of beautiful sights. He was fun, lively and engaging! Great tour!

Best of Madrid: Highlights & Hidden Gems

Our visit of Madrid with Carmen was amazing. She had a lot of knowledge about Madrid and was very happy to share that knowledge with us. She also tailored the visit to our needs and made it very personal. She has a lot of knowledge about culture and literature and a great Spanish flair. My girlfriend and I enjoyed every single moment of the visit and we felt like we made a new friend in Madrid. She gave a lot of suggestions of Flamenco shows, good food and lovely places to visit which made the next few days we spent in Madrid great fun aswell. Thank you for making us feel welcome in the city Carmen but also fall in love with the city so much that we decide to come back to Madrid to spend more time than a weekend.
