Barcelona's airport is 11 miles south of the city, at El Prat de Llobregat. A new terminal was added in 2009 and is (somewhat confusingly) known as Terminal 1, or T1, while the old terminal is known as T2. These days T2 seems mostly deserted, but most of the low-cost and charter airlines work from it, along with a few others. Check www.aena.es or with your airline for details.
