About the Aerobus (Barcelona Airport Express Bus)
There are several different transfer buses going to and from Barcelona Airport. The Aerobus is the Barcelona Airport express shuttle bus that takes people to and from the airport and the city centre.
Aerobuses look different to the standard Barcelona TMB buses. The Aerobuses for T1 and T2 are light and dark blue and have “Aerobus” written down the side in a bubbly style of writing.
Price: Tickets to both T1 and T2 cost €5.30 for a single and €9.15 for a return (return ticket valid for 9 days)
From Terminal 1 (T1): Aerobuses A1 from T1 leave from the front of the building. There are no ticket machines, so tickets can only be purchased from the driver once you get on the bus.
Bus Route for Aerobus A1 to T1:
- 1. Airport, T1
- 2. Plaça Espanya (Torres Venecianas)
- 3. Gran Via - Urgell
- 4. Plaça Universitat
- 5. Plaça Catalunya (City Centre)
From Terminal 2 (T2): There are buses at Barcelona Airport that stop at all of the three parts of T2 – T2A, T2B and T2C. It is easy to identify the Aerobus stops as they have a large blue machine where you can buy the Aerobus ticket. There is nearly always an Aerobus waiting outside one of the terminals and if not you will not have to wait more than 12 minutes for one to arrive.
