Distance from city centre

12 km (7.5 miles) northeast of the centre of Madrid.

Airport parking

Barajas has seven public car parks: P1, P2 and P4 (located in terminal buildings T1, T2/3 and T4 respectively); the short stay car park (T2); the VIP car park for T1, T2 and T3, the VIP car park for T4 and a long-stay car park.

Specific airport features

As the Spanish capital's only major airport and a rapidly expanding one at that it is worth noting that Barajas gets very busy and it can take time to find the check in desk for your flight. Give yourself plenty of time to avoid the airport becoming a stressful experience.
