Airport notices Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat

Strike of the security staff

ue to the strike of the staff at Trablisa, the company which provides the security services at the Josep Tarradellas Barcelona–El Prat Airport, the time required to get through the safety control may be increased. Therefore, we would ask you to take into account the recommendations included in the attached file. he T2C terminal, where Easyjet flights are operated, opens its doors at 4am.

Temporary closure of the T1 regional flight security filter

From the night of October 31, the security heckpoint for access to regional flights located on the 1st floor of Terminal T1 will be closed during the period of works to adapt the boarding area of the South Dock. The boarding area must be accessed through the security checkpoints located on the 3rd floor or on the 1st-North-Barcelona-Madrid Air Corridor.

Borders control

The EU’s new measures to strengthen security checks at its external borders could cause delays at borders checkpoints both entering and leaving the Schengen Area. If you are going to fly, please arrive at the airport well ahead of time.

Under the regulatory changes for Schengen borders, border control agents must check the travel documents of all people crossing external borders against the relevant databases, including individuals entitled to free movement. The security check is performed both when entering and leaving border crossing points.

The Ministry of the Interior recommends that European Union citizens always travel with their biometric passport, and recommends Spanish citizens carry their digital ID. This will allow them to use the automatic ABC checkpoints installed at immigration control stations in the arrivals areas of Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas, Barcelona-El Prat, Palma de Mallorca, Málaga-Costa del Sol, Alicante-Elche and Girona-Costa Brava airports.
