The local train is quite cheap at €4.10* (about £3.20). This train passes through Barcelona and onto the suburbs, so keep an eye on the station signs. There's a taxi rank outside Terminal 1, and many hotels in Barcelona offer airport pick-up. You should expect to pay around €30-40* (£23-31) for a taxi to the city centre.

Practical Information

You don't need a passport to fly on a domestic route within Spain. It's a good idea to keep your passport on you anyway, for security reasons. We recommend arriving at the airport no later than one hour before your flight is scheduled to depart. Give yourself extra time if you're flying during the summer, as the airport can be busy with holidaymakers.
