Cheap flights to Barcelona

Barcelona is truly a city blessed. Perched by the sea it is home to some of the world’s most stunning architecture, a fantastic arts scene and a nightlife that is hard to match.

If you are looking for a romantic stroll down Las Ramblas, or just fancy marvelling at the Sagrada Familia, then there’s a cheap flight to Barcelona that has your name on it.

And we’re about to show you how to find it.

When to book your cheap flight to Barcelona

To be honest, there's a reason to go on holiday to Barcelona for every month of the year.

The summer months may see the lively city packed to the rafters, but there’s festivals to enjoy and a beach to soak up the sun from. 

Spring and autumn offer better bets for a cheaper flight, and an ideal temperature to explore the city. But, take note, Easter’s Holy Week processions mean you’ll be hard pushed to find a real bargain flight during this holiday.

The best time for cheaper flights is from mid-September to November. If you want to really avoid the crowds, though, winter is not too cold (with the temperature rarely dropping below 2-3oC) and bargains are still available.

How to find the best flight deals for Barcelona

It’s not all about the season you book in, though. There are cheap flights to be found to Barcelona at most times if you know the secret tricks to find them.

To find the best price plane tickets to Barcelona try searching Expedia using these tactics.

If you have a little freedom over the dates you can fly then use our ‘Show Flexible Dates’ feature. This appears just above where your flight options are returned – and it lets you see exactly when the cheapest tickets are across a range of days near your suggested one.

Finally, you may wish to consider looking for flights that land in Barcelona Girona and Barcelona Reus airports. But do bear in mind that Girona and Reus are actually more than an hour by road or train from Barcelona itself.

Barcelona-El Prat Airport

The only airport that is in the city itself Barcelona-El Prat. It is more than an hour to the city if you select a flight to Barcelona Girona and Barcelona Reus.

Barcelona-El Prat is located just seven miles southwest of the city centre. Regular overland trains run to the city, with the journey taking around half an hour, and the city Metro has also now been extended to offer similar journey times.

There are also night buses (N17 for Terminal 1 and N17 for Terminal 2) that run to Plaça de Catalunya, and a more expensive but faster Airport Aerobus service.

Taxis from the airport can be as much as €40, but car hire is available from the airport – and it’s an easy drive into the centre.

Exploring Barcelona

To help you make the most of your time in the city here are three of its lesser-known attractions.

Lose yourself in the Parc del Laberint d’Horta (near Parc Guell)

The hedge maze may be one of the city’s hidden gems, but it has been delighting visitors for centuries. Its tall manicured hedges create a maze with more than 600 metres of twists and turns.

See some tasty sculptures in The Chocolate Museum (Jaume I stop on Barcelona Metro)

Combining the history of the world’s favourite treat, with a small dash of Spanish pride and some very artistic sculptures created from chocolate, this museum is so good you could eat it.

European Museum of Modern Art (near the Picasso Museum)

A temple to modernity, tucked away in an 18th century palace amid Barcelona's more well-known museums.

How to survive the flight to Barcelona?
We’ve rounded up all the info you need to make your journey as enjoyable as possible. Follow our tips and you’ll be breezing through the airport and discovering Barcelona in no time flat.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • First of all, pack in your passport, travel documents, bank cards and daily medications. Next, you’ll need some extra in-flight entertainment to help pass the time. A juicy novel and a tablet crammed with your favourite movies are always good options. If you hope to catch more than just forty winks, a quality neck pillow and some noise-cancelling headphones will also be useful. Finally, squeeze in a toothbrush and some deodorant to ensure you hop off the plane looking fresh and ready to go.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Double-check that you don’t have sharp or pointed objects lurking in your hand luggage. Other restricted items include flammable or explosive goods, such as fuel and fireworks, and gels and liquids in containers with a capacity of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • Your number one priority is to make yourself as comfortable as you can. Layer up in breathable clothing and don’t forget to pack a sweater just in case you get chilly. Opt for well-fitting, flat shoes as your feet may swell a little during the flight. Leave the high heels and heavy hiking boots in your checked luggage.
  • Unfortunately, one risk of long flights is developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clotting condition caused by prolonged inactivity. To avoid this, make the most of every opportunity to walk around the cabin and stretch your legs. Compression tights and socks are another easy way to help reduce this risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Barcelona?
Being prepared before you arrive at the airport will help make your trip to Barcelona easy and painless. We’ve rounded up some handy tips and tricks for a swift journey past security:

  • Be sure to keep your ID and travel documents within close reach. They’re the first items you’ll be asked to show at airport security.
  • Time to strip down. Well kind of. Your jacket, belt, keys and other contents of your pockets, like your earphones, will be required to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process faster by removing them before your turn.
  • All your electronic gadgets, including your phone and laptop, must also be separately scanned.
  • Travelling with a new cologne or perfume? No problem. As long as the volume is no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a clear zip-lock bag, you can keep it with you in your carry-on bag.
  • There’s a good chance you’ll be asked to remove your shoes for scanning, so wearing slip-on shoes is always a clever idea.
  • Airlines will not allow any pocket knives or other sharp items in your hand luggage. If you need to bring these kinds of items, put them in your checked baggage.
