Madrid-Barajas Airport (MAD)

Madrid-Barajas Airport is the main international airport serving Madrid in Spain. It opened in 1928, and has grown to be one of the most important aviation centers of Europe. It is located within the city limits of Madrid, just 9 km (5.6 mi) from the city's financial district and 13 km (8.1 mi) northeast of the Puerta del Sol, Madrid's historic centre.

The airport name derives from the adjacent district of Barajas, which has its own metro station on the same rail line serving the airport.

In 2010, over 49.8 million passengers used Madrid-Barajas, making it the country's largest and busiest airport, and in 2009 it was the world's 11th busiest airport and Europe's fourth busiest airport.

Barajas serves as the gateway to the Iberian Peninsula from the rest of Europe and the world, and is a particularly key link between Europe and Latin America.
