HOW TO REACH
Arriving by air
Located conveniently close to the city, compared with some major airports, Madrid Barajas is not immune from that intractable problem of urban life, heavy traffic. Delays at peak hours and in the evenings, to and from Madrid, are not uncommon.
The Airport bus to the Plaza de Colon (Route 89) departs from the Arrivals level of each terminal from 04:45 am until 02:00 am. They operate every 15 minutes until 06:00, then every 10 minutes between 06:00 and 23:00. After 23:00 they operate every 16 minutes.
The Madrid Metro subway system links the airport with the city
