New metro Line 9 South links Barcelona city centre to airport Terminal 1

A NEW metro line connecting central Barcelona to Terminal 1 at El Prat airport opened at the weekend – a facility employees say is a godsend and which will make life far easier for passengers.

Line 9 South links the stations Zona Universitària and Aeroport T1, and officially opened at 14.55hrs on Friday when the first passengers alighted with a multi-trip travel card.

Ticket machines opened five minutes later, allowing members of the public to buy a one-way rail card for €4.50.

One airport worker, who was among the first to travel on the 14.55hrs train using her T-Mes card, says being able to get to T1 directly by train was 'a luxury'.

“Beforehand, you had to catch the metro to T2, and then take a transit train which meant another half an hour's travelling,” she revealed.

Until now, travellers from outside Barcelona arriving by inter-provincial train at the main Sants station had to either add an hour to their journey to get to T1, or take a taxi costing upwards of €20.
