Find the cheapest flight to Barcelona
Barcelona is Spain’s second-largest city, so it’s only fitting that it has the country’s second-largest airport. Barcelona International Airport (airport code BCN) is 10 km away from Barcelona’s city center in a town called El Prat de Llobregat. The airport is sometimes referred to, therefore, as Barcelona El Prat. The largest airport in the country is in Madrid, and the busiest air shuttle service in the world runs between Spain’s two biggest airports.
Barcelona is a main hub for Vueling Airlines and Clickair and a focus city for Spanair, Air Europa and Iberia Airlines. It serves mainly domestic and European destinations. The airport is also a mere three kilometers away from the Port of Barcelona, making it an ideal airport for many cruise-goers. A new south terminal is currently under construction and expected to open in 2009.
