The lost property department of Barcelona Airport T1 deal with items lost whilst you are in the airport. This should not be confused with items of luggage that get lost in transit - these are dealt with by baggage handling companies in the baggage claim area - for more details see our Frequently Asked Question - Luggage Lost in Transit.
If you lose something whilst in T1 it is a far easier process to report it missing than it is in T2. For details of what to do if you lose any possessions whilst in T2 see our Guide to lost Property at Barcelona Airport T2. There is actually a lost property office located within the T1 building where you can go to enquire about what you have lost.
This page covers the location of the lost property office at T1, plus opening times, contact details and procedures.

If you realise that you have lost something whilst you are at the airport, you should go straight to the lost property office and enquire as to whether it has been found.
If you only realise that you have lost something on leaving the airport, it is possible to call the department to see whether they have your item. Alternatively, you can send an email. See the telephone number and email address above. If you are unable to pick up the object from the airport yourself, it is possible to send somebody else to pick it up on your behalf. If you wish to do this, you should send an email to the address provided above. The email should contain the name of the person who you wish to pick up the object, plus their passport or NIE number. Make sure that you inform whoever will be picking the object up that they must bring their passport or NIE certificate with them when they go to the airport.
