How to get to Barcelona airport by metro

Metro L9 to Barcelona airport

There is no direct metro line from Barcelona city center to Barcelona airport.

There is a metro line - L9 metro - which has a station at both airport terminals - it's new - but for some reason it was not made as a direct connection to the city center so using the metro to get to the airport is complicated and takes a long time. because you need to change metro trains and go past many metro stops to finally arrive at Barcelona airport.

So unless you are staying near a station on the metro L9 line then as a means of getting from the city center to the airport the L9 is really only a useful way to get to the airport if there are Barcelona taxi strikes and other protests which can occur from time to time.

Look on the Barcelona metro map to see where you can connect toL9 from other metro lines to city center or check out the video below.
Please note that you need an extra metro ticket for the L9 metro to the airport. For visitors going from Barcelona airport to Fira Gran Via trade fair area, then the L9 metro is a direct and convenient connection. 

Generally most people prefer to take the Aerobus shuttle from city center - buy aerobus tickets. Or take a taxi or private transfer. Uber does not operate in Barcelona. You can order a transfer using the Cabify app which is similar to Uber, but there are restrictions and you have to order 15 minutes in advance of your departure time.
