Frequently asked questions
Flying out of Barcelona-El Prat Airport
Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN), known informally as Barcelona Airport, is situated approximately 12km from Barcelona's city centre. It is the second busiest airport in Spain. Flights from Barcelona to London are both quick and inexpensive, with airlines like British Airways and Vueling offering frequent direct flights.
The airport consists of two terminals which are approximately 4km apart. If you are in Barcelona on a layover and need to switch terminals, you can board the free shuttle service. The shuttle runs between the terminals every four to 20 minutes, depending on the time of day.
Generally, you should arrive at least two hours before your flight, but be sure to check with your airline for their personal recommendations.
London Airport Options
London is served by six international airports, the biggest of which is Heathrow Airport (LHR). The airport is located approximately 23km from central London. Depending on traffic, the trip into the city could take between 30 and 60 minutes by taxi and cost a minimum of $80. If you need a budget-friendly option, you can also catch an express train, public transport bus, or take the underground subway. Direct flights from BCN to LHR are possible.
London's second-busiest airport, Gatwick Airport (LGW), is even farther from central London, at 48km south. Taxis into the city can cost up to $150. Gatwick Airport also offers express trains and public transportation options. Direct flights from BCN to LGW are possible.
The closest airport to London's city centre is London City Airport (LCY), located approximately 7 miles away. However, flights from BCN to LCY are generally more expensive and there are no non-stop options. If you fly to LCY, you will have at least one layover in European cities like Frankfurt or Zürich.
