Barcelona Airport, commonly known as El Prat Airport, is located 10 km (6.2 miles) southwes of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, lying in the municipalities of El Prat de Llobregat, Viladecans and Sant Boi.

The airport is the second largest in Spain behind Madrid-Barajas Airport and the largest in Catalonia. It is a main hub for Spanair and Vueling and a focus city for Air Europa and Iberia. The airport mainly serves domestic, European and North African destinations, also having flights to Southeast Asia, Latin America and North America.
