Flights departing from Barcelona

Barcelona is Spain's second largest city and a global centre of art and culture. It is also known for its gothic buildings and is served by Barcelona-El Prat Airport. This airport is one of the busiest airports in the world and is 12 kilometres away from the city centre.

Flights from Barcelona to Glasgow take off from Barcelona-El Prat Airport, which began running officially in 1918. This is one of the oldest continuously running airports in Europe. In 1927, the first commercial plane took off from this airport to Madrid. This airport has two terminals.

Getting to Barcelona airport

To get on one of the Barcelona to Glasgow flights from El Prat Airport, arrive early at the Passeig de Gracia Station in Central Barcelona and take a Roadalies commuter train. Alight at the Terminal 2 Station and walk to the airport. Another option is to take the Orange Line (L9 Sud), if you wish to travel by metro. There are direct buses from Placa Catalunya to the airport, while the Aerobus' direct transfer remains a more luxurious option. If you wish for even more luxury, just call a cab or take a taxi to the airport.
