Services/facilities. Barcelona Airport is opened 24hr, but not all facilities are so (most opening from 6:00 until approximately 23:00). The airport provides services such as currency exchange, cash machines, wireless access, a business center, children play areas and luggage lockers (AENA, 20102), as well as opportunities for shopping and dinning. Most services are available airside, while others are on the landside, so you may need to clear inmigration to access them. Terminals 1 and 2 are some 4 km of each other but they are connected by a free shuttle bus. Barcelona Airport does not have hotels or sleeping facilities on site. If visiting, you can travel the 10 km from the airport to Barcelona city by train, bus or taxi.
