Getting to Barcelona
Getting to Barcelona
For things to do in Barcelona, see our port of call description, starting on page 516.
Air travel is the only way for many to get to Barcelona. Use the tips on page 69 for booking the best transatlantic flight.
Flights to Barcelona from the U.S. are expensive. We couldn’t find a flight from Detroit (our major hub) for anything under $1300/person, thanks in part to the hefty taxes. Several East Coast airports do offer flights for about $200–$500 less, if that is an option for you. Note that we didn’t find the best rates many months in advance, but rather 4–8 weeks before. To search multiple travel sites at a time, try https://www.kayak.com. Also look into Disney Air (see page 63) to see if it’s a better fit for you—for our Mediterranean scouting cruise, we used Royal Caribbean’s air program and saved a bit of money (and headaches). Travelers coming from elsewhere in Europe should investigate easyJet (https://www.easyjet.com), which has excellent fares for flights to/from Barcelona.
Most likely, you’ll fly into Barcelona Airport/Aeroport de Barcelona (BCN)—also known as El Prat de Llobregat—but it’s possible your flight may have a connection in another city, such as Munich. If you do connect through another airport, you can get more information on airports and their terminals at http://www.airwise.com/airports/europe/.
Barcelona Airport is located 40 minutes from the port, making it very convenient for cruisers. Of the more than 35 airlines that fly into this modern airport, popular lines include American, Iberia, KLM, United, and Delta. When you arrive, your plane docks at one of the three terminals (see map below), though most international flights arrive in Terminal A. From there, follow signs to baggage claim. Taxi stops are positioned opposite each terminal.
For more details on the Barcelona Airport, call +34-932-983-838 or visit http://www.aena.es, click “English,” then select Barcelona from the “Choose airport...” drop-down menu. Airport address: Edificio Bloque Tecnico, 08820 El Prat de Llobregat, Spain.
