Tours and Tickets
The area
Neighborhood: Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
How to get there
  • Catalunya • 2 min walk
  • Urquinaona • 4 min walk

Just got back from a three month stay in Barcelona and thought I'd give this travel company a mention.
From leaving the departure gate I was fortunate enough to spot the Aerobus.
The driver and possibly his assistant could see that I was making a dash for it and duly waited. I paid the fare, which was around 5 euros from the airport to Placa de Espanya.
Highly recommend this value for money transport

Poor Service
Sep 2020 • Business
Bad service . It takes now 1 long hour to get to the airport. Ticket is expensive and, for them to save money, they stop 15 min in Terminal 1 before taking you to terminal 2 . Not advised

Quick & Cheap But Be Prepared with Smaller Notes for Buying Tickets
Jan 2020
The Aerobus was a very easy, quick and relatively cheap way of getting from the airport to the city centre in Barcelona.
ADVANTAGES:
i) it leaves frequently. One departed as we were walking towards it but we didn't have to wait long until the next one arrived (from memory it was only 10 min at most)
ii) the bus stop is located just outside the airport doors so you do not have to walk far or drag bags. There was a clear sign beside the bus and in any case, the bus itself is very distinctive. It bright blue and white, with ‘Aerobus’ written in big, bold, blue letters across the side.
iii) it is inexpensive and there is no need to pre-book. Tickets were €6 pp (although the train is cheaper again, esp if you do the T10 card).
iv) it drops at several locations, finishing at Plaça Catalunya
v) it was clean, comfortable and quick (about 25 min from airport to Plaça Catalunya)
vi) there is a free city map in the seat pockets and free wifi
DISADVANTAGES:
i) You need to be prepared with smaller amounts of cash for the ticket. The driver did not accept notes larger than €20. There was a ticket machine right next to the bus but it didn’t seem to like our credit card so we had to run back upstairs into the airport to get smaller change. The machine worked for others so I assume it was just our card and it wasn’t compatible for some reason.
ii) If you are a family or group, there might not be so much difference in cost between 4 x bus tickets and a taxi.
iii) If your hotel is some distance from one of the bus stops or if you have very heavy bags to drag, then you might still have to get a taxi from the bus stop to your hotel. Our hotel (H10 Raco Del Pi) was in the Gothic Quarter and the walk took less that 10 mins so it worked for us.

Cheap and convenient way to get to the city center from the airport. It is much faster than the new metro line.

Faster than metro
Jul 2020
From the airport we cane on this bus. Having apartments near Placa Espana its just 300 meters on Parallel, so this bus brings us almost home. Even comparing with metre thats like 20 min faster to this point by the same value ,
Quite fast, clean enough.
