Q: Where can I buy the tickets for the Airport bus (Express bus Aerobus A1)? Can I buy the tickets in advance of my trip? How much are the tickets? I would like to make sure I will be able to catch the bus and that it will not be full by buying my ticket in advance. I have a lot of luggage, will there be enough room on the bus to store it? How long does the ride take into the town centre Plaça de Catalunya from the airport?
A: Where to purchase your bus tickets: The tickets for the Aerobuses running from both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 of Barcelona Airport (A1 and A2 Aerobuses) can be purchased on the buses themselves or at the ticket vending machines which are close to the Aerobus stops.
The fare for the Aerobus Tickets to T1 and T2
Single ticket: €5.90
Return ticket: €10.20
Capacity of Bus: Do not be concerned about the bus being full. The buses are rarely full to capacity - and even if an exceptional circumstance was to happen and the bus was to be full the buses run every 10 minutes from all Airport terminals so you would not have long to wait before the next one arrives.
Luggage Facilities on the Airport Bus: The Aerobus has a large rack-luggage storage area in the middle of the bus where you can put your suitcases whilst you are sitting down.
Travel Time To The Town Centre From Airport: The ride into the town centre will take about 35 minutes from the airport to T1 and about 25 minutes from T2.
