    Amazing service at a great price.
    Highly recommend this bus service. Excellent way to go from Barcelona Airport to the city. Great price. Tickets purchased in the bus queue. Very efficient service. Buses depart frequently. Central bus stop very close to our hotel.

    Catastrophy, if you don't have 10 hours ahead of you, just forget it
    Very bad, I was planning to use my tickets for a quick ride into the city during my 3h transit, and based on what customer service said (plenty of buses, a bus every 10 minutes, 30mn ride), it seemed quite feasible. Except this info was all wrong (first bus showed up after 35 mn wait and could only accommodate a small part of the huge queue which had formed outside. As a result I could not use my ticket paid 18€50, due to the misleading information provided to me. When I complained the company just dismissed the whole story saying the tickets were valid.

    THE way to get to and from the airport in Barcelona!!
    Three cheers plus for Barcelona for providing one of the best transport services to and from the airport of any major city in the world! The Aerobus is super convenient, with it's downtown terminus at Placa de Catalunya (with a couple of other stops along the way). There are separate buses for Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, both loading and unloading at the east side of the plaza. Passengers can buy tickets in advance online or from machines, from staff nearby, or from the driver, and can pay with credit card. The buses have lots of space for luggage. The trip to or from the airport takes less than 30 minutes and there are buses running every 10 minutes or less. The fare is 7.25 euros. If traveling from the airport, you may need to ask staff where to get the Aerobus, but it is easy to locate and everyone knows about it.T

    Excellent service.
    Helpfull drivers. Clean and comfortable seating. Plenty of luggage storage. The app takes a bit of time to open eTickets. Had a problem with phone data connection on return journey at Calunya but driver just waved me on regardless. All airports should provide this type of service, esdpecially for tourists.

    Easy transfer between Barcelona Airport and city centre
    Excellent service from Barcelona Airport to the city centre. I bought tickets online in advance in a very simple transaction. Tickers are accessed through an app. There are also ticket machines if you need to buy at the airport but beware of queues. We exited the terminal, easily found the bus stop directly outside: with buses coming every 5-10 minutes there's no delay. Journey to the centre took about 25 minutes. Fast, comfortable and cheap - also far easier than the metro.

    Good option for travel
    Great service to and from airport. Where you’re staying does make a difference to how far your onward journey is at the last bus stop so check the map! Good value and friendly drivers. Will definitely use again. Reliable regular service too .

    Easy to book on line, & reliable
    My wife & i have been using this service from & to the airport for the past few years. If you book the return tickets you also get a discount. Buses are clean, well maintained, have room for luggage of all sizes. There is A/C as well as wifi aboard and usb ports in front of all seats. Recommended.

    Great link between the airport and Barcelona City Center
    The Aerobus is an incredibly convenient and inexpensive way to get to the center of Barcelona and from there back to the airport. The service is well marked at the airport, operates 24/7 and leaves every 5 minutes. The buses have wifi and even USB ports at the seats. Stops are announced in advance. Separate buses service T1 and T2 so you don't lose time driving between terminals at the airport; just be sure to know where your flight is leaving from before you board a bus.

    Don't pay for a cab
    So easy to get from downtown to the airport. No cab necessary. Comes every 15-20 mins to an easy to find location. No hassle at all.

    Airport transfer on the cheap
    Great service. Easy to find at the airport. No rush to get on as the buses are so regular. Excellent position of last stop in Placa Catalunya. Be careful if you buy a ticket for a few days unlimited travel on city buses and metro. Although it says clearly on the machine that the airport bus is included, this is not correct.

    A Cultural Feast
    Being an Art lover, Barcelona was always going to be a treat, with its many museums and galleries, particularly leaning towards the contemporary. After much thought, we decide to purchase Barcelona Cards, which gave us free transport on the Metro, Busses and local trains. (with certain exclusions such as the Aerobus) as well as free admission to many of the museums. We picked up our cards in the airport terminal and travelled to our hotel on La Rambla by the Metro which has stations at the airport. Our hotel on La Rambla was well equipped, but just a warning; The metro run the length of La Rambla underneath the road. As a train passes, the road vibrates, as do the hotels. Be wary if you are a light sleeper though they finish about midnight to start again about 4.50am. More of a concern was the liveliness of La Rambla itself, with noise coming from the street throughout the night. Our room faced the street and this did cause some problems. On the whole, Barcelona is an amazing city with plenty for all. take time to look at what your preferences are because you will not be able to do everything.

    Efficient way of transporting from the airport
    Its an efficient and cost effective way of transporting from the airport to the city. The cost was 6.75 € pp and they run every 10 minutes. A taxi covering the same trip could cost 35-40€. The stop is outside the airport and we were travelling to our hotel near Placa Catalunya which was around a 5 minute walk to our hotel. It was a comfortable ride.

Aerobus from airport was so easy and excellent value. We bought 2 Hola Barcelona adult tickets online, combining the Aerobus ticket with an additional 3 day travel pass to cover all buses, Metro and trains whilst visiting Barcelona (there are other number of days options). Adult cost was €29.95 each (GB £25.22) that covered the return Aerobus back to airport. You get an email confirmation and we showed the QR code to the bus driver. No waiting for a bus and it took about 25 minutes into Placa de Cataluyna, one of the main squares in the centre (not the only stop you can use). We used the same Placa de Cataluyna stop for the return as we had lunch in the top floor restaurant of El Cortes Ingles which is next to the Aerobus stop (restaurant has brilliant views, excellent quality and value). We activated the bus & Metro part of our ticket the day after we arrived using an Aerobus ticket machine in a Metro station - we didn't need to use it previously as we'd walked everywhere. Highly recommended - saved us money and hassle. The buses also had a USB charging point on the back of the seat in front of you - great idea.

Wonderful ride, but getting a ticket from the machine was only possible through either NFC contact on your phone's banking app or credit card. When using a credit card, we paid but the machine malfunctioned and did not spit out the tickets. One of the nearby Aerobus employees kindly opened up the machine to fix it and allowed us access on the bus. In the bus there's some much needed AC and USB charging hubs which are extremely handy after a long plane ride.

Unless you are renting a car and have your own transportation, there is simply no reason to travel between the airport and city of Barcelona any other way! We used Aerobus both ways and experienced plenty of busses which were ready when we were, roomy and comfortable seating and luggage storage area, comfortable temperature, and WiFi. Could not have been more convenient, simple, and reasonably priced. Highly recommend Aerobus in Barcelona!

Great service. Fair price. My only observation is that buses run empty at off-peak hours and that forces drivers to drive slower and slow other bus lane traffic down. I would rather wait for bus to fill up a bit more at the airport stop than to suffer a long sluggish trip through the city as empty buses pile up at the final stop.

Easy to purchase the tickets from a kiosk right outside the airport. Buses leave every few minutes so if you don't get on the first one you see, another will be right behind. You don't have to wait long. Bus was clean and there was plenty of room for all our luggage. They have free WiFi onboard which was very helpful. We rode this 1 way on the first leg of our journey and on the second leg (when we returned back to Barcelona from a cruise) we bought a round trip ticket which only cost us 10,20 euro (in comparison to our 1 way ticket cost of 5,90 euro) So you do save a little buying a round trip ticket if you need one.

I took the Aerobus both to the city centre and returning back to BCN airport. I went as far as Placa de Espanya, the buses are every five mins so there was no long wait times. Leaving the airport you buy the ticket from the machine right next to the Aerobus stand. Coming back you buy the ticket off the driver. The buses were all clean and modern with luggage racks and USB charging ports. The Aerobus isn't the most reasonably priced option but it is the quickest and easiest route.

This bus was such a convenient way of leaving the airport to get to Plaza de Catalunya, which we then took a short cab ride to our hotel, which was Hotel Colon. They accept card payments (at an automated box) or Euros to the driver, only 5.90 Euros.
We took the A1 from T1 at airport to Plaza de Catalunya which was about a 30 minute ride. The seats were comfortable. There is wifi onboard. The bus is air conditioned.
We also used this bus (A1) to get from Plaza de Catalunya to the airport (T1) at 5am to get to the airport as well. The bus runs every 10 minutes. I'm sure there are other means to get to/from airport but this was the easiest, most intuitive way for us.

We arrived at Barcelona airport and found the aerobus and ticket machine outside the terminal and as we werent sure whether we would use this for our reteurn journey in case we found it difficult or whatever then we only purchased single tickets. As I recall for the beginning of November when we travelled it worked out at around £10.14 for the 2 of us for single tickets. We did actually use the bus for the return journey which we picked up in the main square at the top of Les Rambles and there are metro stations and a Tourist information site all in this square also and other buses. We got off at a stop near out hotel and walked to our hotel from the bus stop when we arrived in barcelona. It was the stop near the university. Like I say very easy and run regularly as well. Just make sure for your return one that you know which terminal you are flying from so you get on the correct bus.

30 years ago the train to Plaça de Catalunya was the best way to go, but these days, I always take the Aerobus. These are frequent and fast, the average journey time is about 30 minutes.

Don't believe some of the websites that say you have to book beforehand - it's not true. The driver takes €5.90 cash or cards and phone payments.
