Madrid's Barajas Airport is Europe's fourth largest. Terminal 4 (T-4) handles flights from 32 carriers, including American Airlines, British Airways, and Iberia. All other U.S. airlines use Terminal 1.

Airport terminals are connected by bus service and also to the metro (Línea 8) and take you to the city center in 30 to 45 minutes for around €5 (€1.50–€2 plus a €3 airport supplement). For €5 there's also a convenient bus to Avenida de América, where you can catch the subway or a taxi to your hotel. (Note that bus drivers don't take bills greater than €20.)
