Arriving in Madrid
British Airways flights from London land at Madrid-Barajas Airport, which is conveniently located just nine kilometres from the city’s financial district and thirteen kilometres northeast of the central Puera del Sol. Madrid’s metro service will take you straight from the airport to the historic city centre area, or you can catch a taxi from just outside the airport terminal building. Looking to venture further outside the city during your stay? You can also arrange your car hire upon landing at the airport, which allows you to visit the local area at your own pace.
