Travelling to and from the airports

Flights from Birmingham

Barcelona flights from Birmingham leave from the UK's second city, and its airport is known as Birmingham International Airport. The airport has an interesting design in that it features a state-of-the-art three story pier, of which the top tier is departures, arrivals come into on the middle level and staff and offices operate from the ground level. The airport also has an Air-Rail Link System that can transport up to around 1600 people per hour from the airport's train station to the terminals. Although during the Second World War, the airport was used as an RAF training facility, it was returned to civilian use in 1946.

Travel to Birmingham airport

If you are travelling from Birmingham to Barcelona, you can reach Birmingham Airport a number of ways. The airport is located six miles outside the city centre at Junction 6 of the M42 motorway, via the A45. The M42 also connects with the M6, M1, M40 and M5 motorways. You can also travel to the airport on one of the following bus services: 97/97A from the city centre, 900/900A via Birmingham and Coventry, 966 from Erdington and Solihull, 75/75A from Sutton Coldfield or 91 from Chelmsley Wood. National Rail services also connect the city centre to Birmingham International Station where a 2-minute Air-Rail Link monorail system will run you to the terminal.

Arriving in Barcelona

Spectacular architecture, iconic monuments, a buzzing night scene and golden beaches lapped by the Mediterranean Sea await visitors taking a holiday in Barcelona, one of Europe's most popular city break destinations. A day spent visiting sights such as Gaudi's magnificent Sagrada Familia and Park Güell, the Ciutat Vella (Old City) and Picasso Museum can be capped with sunset cocktails on one of the city's beaches followed by dinner in a Michelin-starred restaurant or bustling tapas bar. If you love shopping, head to Passeig de Gracia for high street stores and designer boutiques. To escape the crowds, stroll through the landscaped gardens of vertiginous Montjuic, which boasts sweeping views of the city and beyond.

Travelling to the city centre

Flights from Birmingham to Barcelona can arrive at Terminal 1 or 2 of Barcelona El Prat Airport, approximately nine miles from the city centre. The terminals are linked by a shuttle bus. The Aerobus service 1 (from Terminal 1) and 2 (from Terminal 2) connect to the city centre. There is also a 46 bus from both terminals, N17 night bus from Terminal 1 and N16 from Terminal 2 that all go to the city centre. In addition, a Renfe train connects Terminal 2 to Barcelona centre. Flights may also arrive at Girona Airport (54 miles away) or Reus Airport (65 miles away) served by low-cost airlines. A Barcelona Bus service runs from both terminals.

Terminal 1 is way busier and less user friendly than Terminal 2. Very unfortunate for Vueling to be located in that terminal.
