Six airlines currently offer flights from London to Barcelona: British Airways from Heathrow and Gatwick; easyJet from Gatwick, Southend and Luton; Ryanair from Stansted; Monarch Airlines from Gatwick; Norwegian Air Shuttle from Gatwick; and Vueling from Gatwick.
Terminal Information – DepartingGatwick: Vueling, British Airways and easyJet flights depart from the North Terminal. Monarch Airlines and Norwegian Air Shuttle both fly from the South Terminal. Most buses stop at both terminals, but if you’re arriving at the airport by Stansted Express you will need to take the inter-terminal shuttle to reach the north terminal. Both terminals at Gatwick are packed with places to eat, drink and shop, with an atmosphere similar to a shopping mall.
Heathrow: Flights to Barcelona usually depart from Terminal 3. The Heathrow Express and Piccadilly Line both stop here. With 36 shops to browse and 10 eateries to choose from, the departure lounge at Terminal 3 has plenty to keep you occupied while you wait.
Luton: Luton Airport has only one terminal. There’s a good range of high street shops, and a nail bar if you feel like a pre-holiday manicure. There are lots of places to grab a bite to eat too.
Southend: This is a small airport with just one terminal. If you feel like shopping there is a duty free store and a WHSmith, and a couple of places to grab a bite to eat. There’s a First Class lounge if you want to start your holiday in style. It costs £20.95 (£17.95 if you book in advance) and it’s a great place to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet: along with complementary snacks and drinks.
Stansted: Another one terminal airport, Stansted has a good range of high street shops and restaurants where you can chill out. Grab some quick sushi at Itsu, sit down for a fancy meal at James Martin’s Kitchen, or enjoy a tasty burger at Giraffe.

You need a valid passport to visit Barcelona. If your passport is set to expire while you’re out of the country you won’t be allowed to board your flight to Barcelona. We recommend arriving at the airport at least one hour before your flight is due to depart. Give yourself extra time if you’re planning to check in some luggage, or want to indulge in a bit of duty free shopping. You should also factor in extra time if you’re travelling during a busy period, such as the school holidays or at the weekend.
