From the Airport

Public Transportation

Metro

There are 2 Metro stations at the Madrid Barajas Airport, one in Terminal T2 and the newer one in Terminal T4. Trains leave every 5 minutes from 6.00am to 2.00am. Line 8 goes straight to the Nuevos Ministerios Metro station in the center of Madrid, with a journey time of around 12 minutes.

The price for a single journey to or from the airport is currently 5 euros, this includes a supplementary airport charge. If you already possess a valid metro ticket, you can simply purchase the airport supplementary ticket which is 2 euros cheaper.

Tip: Consider buying the Madrid Tourist Travel Pass, which allows you to travel on any Metro, bus or suburban train, all included in the price of just 5 euros, making it a great way to save money on public transport. With this pass, it is not necessary to pay the airport surcharge.
