Metro (subway), Madrid: 102 reviews and 96 photos

  This will get you to/from the Barajas airport
by Jawnuta

If you use Madrid Subway system to get to or from the airport, make sure to purchase the right ticket. There is an extra surcharge (suplemento aeropuerto) if you want to exit/enter on Barajas station.
If you will get the regular ticket and not mention the airport, you will be stuck at the exit (since you have to slide ticket through the machine on the entrance and exit) and look for a spare change and for the ticket machine to buy extra ticket.
We have seen many tourists who were trying to catch their flight, or just spend all their money before flying out.
See my picture, make sure your ticket has little airplane sign on it. Save yourself time.
