Getting to Know Madrid Airport

This is Madrid’s main airport, located north of the city’s centre, in the district of Barajas. Madrid Barajas has four impressive terminals and functions as a large hub for Iberia, the country's flag carrier. It is among Europe’s busiest airports, handling over 60 million passengers annually. The airport was renamed in 2014 to honour Adolfo Suárez, a former Prime Minister who died the same year. Suárez played a key role in the country's transition to democracy in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Madrid-Barajas offers tons of services and amenities for travellers, including stores, restaurants, and lounges. There are also several hotels located within and immediately around the airport complex, so it’s a convenient option for those with early morning flights or long layovers. The airport is well-connected to the city’s main centre by public transportation, and the most popular ways to get here include the train, which arrives and leaves from Terminal 4, the metro (T2 and T4 both have stations), and the bus, also with stops at T4. Overall, Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas is a modern and efficient airport that serves as an important gateway to other parts of Spain and Europe.
