Reus Airport is 3km from the Spanish City of Reus, 13km from Tarragona and about 80km south of Barcelona.
Reus airport has a new check-in terminal that now merges the existing arrivals and departures buildings. Building work is currently underway in the boarding gate area and passengers continue to board from the provisional terminal. This temporary terminal is accessed via a covered walkway located after security screening.
It is an easy drive up to Barcelona but takes at least an hour and if you are staying right in the centre of Barcelona for just a few days I would be tempted to get the bus.
Reus is a small airport that is getting busier each year. Passenger numbers in 2009 were 1,706,609 compared with just 846.731 in 2003. Up until 1998 the airport only handled around 500,000 people each year. Reus is an airport that has definitely benefited from the introduction of low cost flights from Ryanair and passenger numbers have more than doubled since 1995. In 2009 30,948 flights were handled by Reus Airport.
If you are going to Barcelona for the weekend then you will save quite a lot of time and hassle by flying direct into Barcelona Airport. However Ryanair are trying to keep the prices low enough to make flying to Reus a sensible alternative.
