Barajas Airport (MAD)


Barajas is located 8 miles (13 km) northeast of the center of Madrid. There is a tourist information center is in the arrivals hall. If you read Spanish, access the airport's Web site, a work in-progress.

Taxis are available outside the arrivals hall. Fares are metered, but if the meter is not working make sure you agree on a fare before departing. The fare should be about 3,000 pesetas ($20) to the center, depending on the traffic, and the trip will take from 30 to 60 minutes.

An airport bus leaves every 15 minutes during peak travel times from 6 A.M. to 1 A.M., with less frequent departures during off-peak hours. The bus goes to the Plaza de Colon in the center of Madrid. There is a taxi stand at the Plaza, so you can take a taxi to your final destination. The bus fare is 300-400 pesetas ($2-$3), and travel time is 30 to 60 minutes, same as the taxi.
