Sorry if this topic has been posted elsewhere.

Does anyone know when the new terminal across the airfield will open? Also which airlines will be using the new one and which will be staying back at the old terminal?

I am already thinking of my late Spring/Summer holidays which will require some transfering through BCN and across airlines. I just want to make sure that I do not have to change terminals - as I am sure that would require additional connecting time.

Thanks for any updates on BCN - one of my favourite airports!

I was in BCN two days ago and the new Terminal wont be ready before the end of the year in my opinion. If you are going then the worst you could expect is to go between the two terminals A and B. Its only a short walk between the two, In fact they are actually adjoined and you dont even have to go outside in most cases.

Hola TYCOON!

As far as I know from what I have been reading in the press the new Terminal Sud will open in summer 2009, so you should not have to worry about changing terminals the coming summer.

The Airlines going to Terminal Sud are all the OW (IB, BA, AA, RJ, Malev...) and *A (LH, JK, LX, SQ...). All the ones with intercontinetal flights: CO, DL, AV, Aeromexico, AR.... and a few others.

Skyteam members will stay in the old terminal except for the flights BCN-MAD on UX.

Salut i Bon vol!

Roger

Quoting TYCOON (Thread starter):

I am already thinking of my late Spring/Summer holidays which will require some transfering through BCN and across airlines. I just want to make sure that I do not have to change terminals - as I am sure that would require additional connecting time.

By the way, this is not a problem because even if BCN have 3 terminals, they are all connected through a long corridor (called "rambla") that links each terminal with each other. So, no need to exit the airside, to take a bus or a train to get the other terminal, etc. etc., assuming that you will check-in your baggage until your final destination. If not, this is another story. Moving from terminal, let's say A, to terminal C or B means just some walk (not very much).

BCN airport if quite simple. As you can see, each bunch of gates ("modulos") belong to a terminal: M0 and M1 to Terminal C, M2 and M3 to terminal 2, and M4 and M5 to Terminal A. All of them are linked by the "rambla". Going from M5 to M0 is about 15 min.

Minimum connecting time is 50 min, regardless the terminals you use.

Thanks for all the information! I have transfered through BCN a number of times each year over the past 10 years - and it is really one of my favourite airports anywhere. I really like the shopping and the good airplane spotting. It is very easy to get around - even if a bit hectic in July and August.
I was mainly concerned with connecting between the existing terminal and the new Terminal Sud being built.

I don't think that Air Europa will choose to operate only MAD-BCN from Terminal Sur and the rest of their flights from the others.

Those you quote will stay at current terminals. AR.... It'll depend on what happens to Spanair. Maybe AV will go to Tsur due to codeshare and interline agreement with IB. But CO, DL and AM are Skyteam and I seriously doubt they'll go there.

If JK is finally purchased by Iberia or Nefinsa (Air Nostrum) instead of Marsans (Air Comet, Aerolineas Argentinas) we might see a huge change regarding Star Alliance.
