Madrid-Barajas Airport is strategically situated in the centre of Spain, just 12 kilometres from the capital. No other European capital can boast an international airport so close to the city centre, which means great savings in time and money for the traveller.
A full, state-of-the art transport infrastructure network ensures fast, direct access to the airport premises. It takes just 12 minutes by ultra –modern train to reach Barajas from the Nuevos Ministerios station in central Madrid. And fast roadways provide easy access for vehicle traffic, allowing two bus lines and a seemingly endless flow of taxis to link Madrid and its airport in the shortest time possible. In the future, further roadways – free and toll – will link up the city and the Barajas Terminal Area installations that will also feature underground and suburban line train stations.
