The Aerobus is the bus service connecting the airport and the centre of Barcelona. Buses leave every 5 minutes, all year long. In approximately 35 minutes you can access any of the two terminals (T1 or T2) comfortably and cheaply, without having to transfer. The journey stops in strategic points in the city, leaving from Plaça de Catalunya. One-way ticket: 5.90€. Return ticket: 10.20€.
It takes 25 minutes approximately from the airport to Passeig de Gràcia station.
