Madrid-Barajas Airport is located in the northwest of Madrid and is one of the most important hubs in Spain. The airport is Spain’s number 1 when it comes to passenger transport, air cargo and business matters, and number 4 among European airports concerning the number of transported passengers.

The airport expanded its air transport services by enlarging its Terminal 4 and has since been providing more flight connections within hispano-american, national and European markets. The new system and the technical advancements of the facility enable a better and especially faster mobility for the passengers.

Among the services that the airport offers, the parking facility service, which is operated by the company Empark – Parking Spaces and Services GmbH (Empark, Aparcamientos y Servicios, S.A. –, has to be highlighted.
