Barcelona Airport is located 10 km south-west of the city, between the city limits of El Prat de Llobregat, Viladecans and Sant Boi. The airport is the second largest in Spain behind Madrid-Barajas Airport and the first in Catalonia. The airport mainly serves domestic, European and North African destinations, also having minor flights to Southeast Asia, Latin America and North America.
The access road to the airport, the C-31 Barcelona-Castelldefels dual carriageway, connects with the C-32 Barcelona-Sitges. From the city of Barcelona ring roads, you can arrive by the so-called Pata Sur.
Barcelona airport has two large terminal buildings: T1 and T2. Barcelona Airport follows the criteria of terminal use by company, regardless of the destination or origin of the flight, so flights may depart and arrive from either of the two terminals.
