The opening of the new T1 building at Barcelona Airport has seen the introduction of a whole new range of eating and drinking opportunities during your trip. There is a wider variety of options in T1 than there is in T2. This includes the addition of establishments such as McDonald's and the Basque tapas chain, Lizarran.
Most of the snacking opportunities at Barcelona Airport T1 will not become apparent to you until you go through security into the departures area. Before departures there are only three cafeteria options - one of which is open 24 hours. In total, the airport has three cafeterias that are open 24 hours, the rest are generally open from 05:00 - 20:00. This ensures that you will always have a food option of some kind whilst at the airport.

Nobody likes waiting around in long queues to get their COVID test. The Express COVID testing service we recommend only works by appointment ensuring that you get tested when you need to without having to queue. Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight or cruise offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport or from a cruise liner. You have your certificates on time without a rush, you have time to correct inaccuracies on your certificate and you have time to re-arrange your flight or other travel plans if you should test positive.
