There are many options available when looking for Madrid flights. The country’s National Air Carrier is Iberia Airlines, but a great deal of other scheduled air carriers such as British Airways and charter air carriers like Air Transat Vacations operate flights into Madrid.
For the most affordable flights to Madrid, it is best to consider travelling onboard a charter air carrier such as Air Transat. While charter air carriers routinely provide the cheapest European airfare options, it is important to note that they do not operate flights to Europe year round. Typically, charter air carriers will only offer flights during tourist season, which is April to October or in some cases May to September. Also worth mentioning, charter air carriers do not fly every day of the week so you may need to be flexible with your travel dates in order to take advantage of their cheap ticket prices.
Madrid International Airport, more commonly known as Barajas, is located within the city’s limits. It is the country’s largest and busiest airport and in 2009 was ranked as the eleventh busiest airport globally and fourth busiest in Europe. Bajaras is linked to many parts of Madrid, with train service to the heart of Madrid running every five minutes from 6 am to 2 am daily. Bus as well as car and taxi hire are readily available. Inside the airport you’ll find over 30 restaurants and bars, some with wireless Internet, more than 100 shops including duty-free shops plus a post office, a multitude of ATMs, two full banks, a playground, meeting facilities, a chapel and nurseries. In addition to scheduled air carriers and charter air carriers, Madrid International Airport is serviced by some regional air carriers offering flights to all other areas of Spain.
