Distance from Madrid to Barcelona is 480 km or 300 miles
In the past there have been up to almost 1000 flights a
week between Madrid Barajas airport
(MAD) and Barcelona
El Prat Airport
(BCN). This gave the route the title of 'busiest air route in the world'.
But things have changed. In 2008 a high speed railway connection has
been introduced between Madrid and Barcelona, reducing travel time by
rail between the two city centers to 2 hours 30 minutes. Flighttime: 1
hours 15 minutes. The railway is nowadays very popular to travel
between Madrid and
Barcelona. But if you really need a flight. Don't worry, there are
still plenty of
connections. You don't need almost 1000 flights a week.
