Terminal Information – Arriving

Madrid Airport is absolutely massive, but it's not difficult to get into the city. We recommend doing your research before you fly so that you know which bus or train to take. Metro stations are accessible from every terminal. These trains will get you to Nuevos Ministerios station in about 15 minutes. From there you can connect to other Metro lines to reach your final destination. Another option is bus 203, a direct service to Atocha train station. This service takes about 40 minutes and leaves from terminals 1, 2 and 4. Bus line 200 goes to the Avenida de America transport hub while bus 101 goes to Canillejas transport hub. Metered cabs, car hire from Madrid Airport and private shuttle transfers are also available.

Practical Information

Because this is an internal flight you don't need to show your passport. You may be asked for some photographic ID before boarding, so either bring your passport or your driving license. For internal flights it's best to arrive at the airport no later than one hour before departure: ideally 90 minutes beforehand.
