To and from the airports

Flights from Madrid

Madrid is Spain's capital city and also one of the most important European capitals. It is a global center of commerce and flights to both domestic and international destinations take off and land at the Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport. The airport, which is also known as Madrid–Barajas Airport, is a link between Europe and Latin America.

Flights from Madrid to London take off from the Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport. This airport originally had three terminals but a fourth was recently designed by Richard Rogers and Antonio Lamela to provide a stress-free starting point for travelers. The airport began to operate in 1931, though it has since been reconstructed several times.

Getting to Madrid airport

To get to Gatwick from Madrid, you need to reach Madrid–Barajas Airport located 13 kilometers from the historical center of the city. Take Madrid Metro's Line 8 and disembark at Terminal 2 or Terminal 4 stations. Terminal 2 station provides access to terminals 1 and 3. Alternatively, take one of the EMT buses from anywhere in Madrid to reach terminals 1, 2 and 4. Leave well in advance as travel time is expected to be between 30 and 45 minutes. There are also taxis and limousines available but they can be very pricey.

Getting to London

A majestic and timeless city, London always surprises its visitors with its uniqueness and modernity. London is a city where you can admire magnificent medieval buildings, and take a ride on the giant Ferris wheel called the London Eye. Do not forget to witness the Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace. Walk around Hampstead and discover quaint alleys and streets that inspired many well-known artists and writers. Shop till you drop in Oxford Street, which is Britain's longest shopping street. If you are looking for some nightly action, head toward Soho in West End of London, the entertainment district of this quirky metropolis.

Arriving to the city centre

Your Madrid to London flight may arrive at Gatwick Airport, which is 47.5 kilometers south of London's city center. The airport railway station connects Luton Airport with Victoria and London Bridge stations. However, if you land at other airports in London, trains can still help you to arrive in central London. From Heathrow, take the Heathrow Express to Paddington Station. From Luton Airport, hop on the super-fast train to Kings Cross St. Pancras station. Stansted and Southend airports are located in Essex and trains connect these airports to Liverpool Street in central London. More expensive options include taking taxis, luxury coaches and limousines, which are available at all airports.
