When is the best time to book a flight to Barcelona?

How long is the flight to Barcelona?

Flights to Josep Tarradellas Barcelona–El Prat International Airport, Barcelona, Spain, typically vary between 24h 10m and 37h 20m, depending on the airline and the routing of your flights. This is if you are flying from OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg (JNB). If your flight originates from Cape Town International Airport in Cape Town (CPT) or King Shaka International Airport in Durban (DUR), these times can be considerably longer. To accommodate for flight times and the time spent in transit in Johannesburg, be prepared to add at least 3h to your connecting flight from Durban, and at least 5h to your connecting flight from Cape Town. While some airlines offer flights to Europe from Cape Town, your choices are fewer when travelling from Durban.

Are there non-stop flights to Barcelona?

No, there are no Barcelona flight deals that allow you to travel non-stop from any destination in South Africa to this city. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines offers a deal from JNB to BCN via Amsterdam (AMS), as does Air France via Paris (CDG) and Qatar Airways via Doha (DOH). Qatar Airways, KLM and Air France all fly directly from Cape Town to DOH, CDG and AMS, so travellers in the Western Cape don’t need to route themselves via JNB. Qatar Airways offer direct flights from Durban to Doha, though the flight stops in JNB on its way to the Middle East. Alternatively, for Durbanites, a good option to consider is a flight to Johannesburg and then a connection to an international carrier there.

How do you get from Barcelona Airport to Barcelona city centre?

Josep Tarradellas Barcelona–El Prat International Airport, Barcelona, Spain, is a very well-connected airport. Line 9 of the Barcelona Metro will get you to the city centre from both terminal 1 and terminal 2. The Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB) also runs a bus service into town – take bus 46.

What are some things to do in Barcelona?

This is the land of Anton Gaudi, so your first stop should be La Sagrada Familia, the Gaudi-inspired church that has become a landmark of the city, followed by the sculptural buildings in Park Güell and Casa Milà, a must-see arts venue – all inspired by Gaudi, who breathed life into them. The magnificent Gothic temple of the Catedral de Barcelona is not to be missed, and neither is the 800-year-old La Boqueria, Barcelona’s oldest market. Many of Barcelona’s old buildings also look like painters’ masterpieces, so the whole city is eye candy. The Picasso Museum houses some of his works, but it is the building itself that is such a special place. Likewise, Casa Battló is akin to the physical equivalent to Monet’s "Water Lilies" with its interesting mosaic of stained-glass affixed to its exterior. Tibidabo Mountain offers visitors to the city a fairground experience on a hill that can be seen from the city centre. If art is your scene, then Barcelona must be on your itinerary.

Do I need a passport or a visa to fly to Barcelona?

Saffers travelling to Europe via Barcelona will require a visa to enter the Schengen Area, which will need to be housed in a current passport.
