Disabled Facilities at Barcelona Airport Terminal 1 (T1) - Services for Limited Mobility Travellers

Book Taxi Barcelona, Guide to Disabled Facilities

Since the introduction of EU regulations in July 2008, there are very specific rights in relation to disabled and limited mobility travellers whilst at the airport. These are in place from the moment that you enter the airport until the moment that your plane takes off.

Barcelona Airport's new T1 building is well designed from those with limited mobility. The building is spread across three floors. However, each floor can be reached via lift or mechanical ramps.

Accessibility of T1 for people with limited mobility

The entire T1 building has been designed to be accessible to those with limited mobility. It contains the following:

49 moving walkways
26 mechanical ramps
48 escalators
125 lifts

Locations of Meeting Points in T1 for people with limited mobility

Meting Points are made to ensure that limited mobility travellers do not need to inform the airport in advance of any special need that they may have. You simply need to make your way to one of the meeting points on arrival at the airport and you will be assisted by a specially trained member of the Aena staff from this point until the point when you get onto the plane.

There are a total of eight meeting points at Barcelona Airport's T1. They are located in the following places:

The car park that is connected to T1.
The lobby area of the ground floor (P0)
The arrivals area of the ground floor (P0)
The check-in at the Barcelona / Madrid Air Corridor (P1)
The main 'La Plaza' area of the arrivals floor (P1)
Just outside departures on the third floor (P3)
In the general check-in lobby on the third floor (P3)
The Departures roadway on the third floor (P3)

If you are having trouble finding one of the meeting points, simply search for a member of the Aena staff and they will point you in the right direction.

Limited mobility parking at T1

The car park that is located adjacent to Terminal 1 is suitable for limited mobility travellers. On the second floor of the parking you will find 108 spaces that are reserved for the cars of people with reduced mobility.
