Car Park in Madrid - Barajas Airport

Where to park at Madrid - Barajas Airport
Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport is located in the northeast of Madrid, in the district of Barajas, 12 kilometers from the center. It has four terminals and it is the first Spanish airport by passenger traffic, air cargo and number of operations.

Adolfo Suárez Madrid - Barajas Airport, formerly Madrid-Barajas Airport, is located about 12 kilometres from the centre of Madrid, in the north-eastern part of the Spanish capital.

The airport is referred to by International Air Transport Association (IATA) codes: MAD and International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) codes: LEMD. Owned by AENA, it is the largest Spanish airport in terms of passenger traffic, air cargo and number of flight operations.

How to get there

There are several ways to reach Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport, either by public transport or private car.

Taxi

Taxis in Madrid are white with red stripes and the coat of arms of the city hall on the front door. Several taxi ranks scattered around the airport terminals outside the arrivals hall. The taxi cost from the airport to the centre of Madrid is 30€ per one-way trip, regardless of the number of passengers and distance travelled.

If the destination is in the area outside the M-30 ring road, the fare is 20€ for journeys of up to 10 km. After 10 km, the taximeter will continue to calculate the corresponding tariff. The transport of guide dogs and pets, if they travel in an approved carrier, is free of charge, as is the transport of luggage, if the capacity of the luggage space and the roof rack allows it.

Bus

Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport connects to nearby cities by an extensive public transport network of city and regional buses. There are bus stops at all terminals, but not all lines stop at each terminal.

The airport is connected to the centre of Madrid by city buses of the Empresa Municipal de Transportes (EMT) on lines 200, EXPRÉS-203, N27 EXPRÉS, and 101.

Taking the bus to the Airport

Madrid has a transport service called Line 203 or "Airport Express" connecting the city centre (Atocha by day and Cibeles by night) with Barajas Airport. The line, with yellow buses, runs 24 hours a day, every day of the year and takes about 30 minutes (to T1, five minutes to T2 and another five minutes to T4). It runs every 15-20 minutes during the day (from 6 am to 11.30 pm) and every 35 minutes at night (from 11.30 pm to 6 am). The fare is 5 euro, to be purchased in the bus itself.

The starting point of the service is T4. There are stops in T2, T1, O'Donnell (at the junction with Doctor Esquerdo), Plaza de Cibeles (the hub of the EMT's night services EMT, the búhos) and Atocha station (operating between 06:00 and 23:30). At night, the stop is in the centre of Madrid (Plaza de Cibeles), and the bus is called N27 Exprés Aeropuerto.

The bus routes to the airport include lines 200, which provides a fast connection between the Avenida de América junction and the airport (with buses every 10-20 minutes from 5.00 to 23.30) and 101, which connects the Canillejas junction with the airport (with buses every 13-30 minutes from Monday to Saturday from 6.00 to 23.25 and on Sundays and public holidays from 7.30).

The terminal T4 of Madrid Barajas Airport is connected to Madrid by line C1 of the local train network Cercanías Renfe.

The price of a single ticket is 2.60 €. The ticket has a duration of 2 hours from the moment of delivery and is free for those with an AVE train ticket who have to change flights.

The train goes every 30 minutes and arrives at the airport station. This station is located on terminal T4 floor -1. To get to other terminals, you need to take the shuttle bus that connects from this terminal to the other terminals.

Metro (Line 8)

Madrid's metro network also takes you from the city centre to the airport. Línea 8 connects the Nuevos Ministerios station with the airport terminals in 20 minutes.

There are two stations at the airport, serving the old terminals (Airport T1-T2-T3, located in Terminal T3) and the new terminal area (Airport T4). There is a €3 surcharge for boarding and alighting at both stations, purchased separately or added to the accompanying ticket. Users with a transport pass or tourist pass do not pay an airport surcharge.

Between the stops "Aeropuerto T1 T2 T3" and "Aeropuerto T4", the metro makes a stop at the "Barajas" stop. This stop is not part of the airport.

Other Buses

Intercity buses 822, 824, 827 and 828 connect other cities with the airport.

The service is available every day from 6:00 am to 11:30 pm. Tickets and fares can be obtained from Consorcio Transportes Madrid.

Parking at Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport

You will find the official AENA car park at the airport itself, although it has much higher prices than other parking services you can book online. There are basically three options for parking at the airport

  1. Official AENA car park (located at the airport), with its own rates for long and short stays. It has the highest price but is closest to the terminals in terms of walking distance.
  2. VIP service (valet parking): they will pick up your car upon arrival at the terminal and bring it back to you on your return. It is a very convenient, cheap and insured service and they will even clean your car if you want.
  3. Shuttle service: these car parks are located 5-10 minutes from the airport and have very low prices, with different offers depending on the service (indoor, outdoor, covered, with cleaning, etc.): once you have parked your car, they will take you to the airport in one of their shuttle vans. This option is incredibly convenient for medium-term trips.

Parkimeter allows you to compare the prices of different services to decide which one suits you best.

Comparativa Taxi vs AENA vs Llollo vs Parkimeter

*Comparison of a two-day stay in one of the Parkimeter car parks versus two days in the cheapest official AENA car park (long stay), two days parking with llollo (as of 27/3/17) and a return trip by taxi from the city centre.

Save up to 80% on your parking fee!

The price difference in parking with Parkimeter compared to other options is already big for one day. Still, by booking for several days or weeks, the price per day drops, and in some cases, you can even get a saving of 80% compared to the price for one day.

We also have car parks all over the city, in more than 70 locations in Spain.
