It is the second largest and second busiest airport in Spain behind Madrid-Barajas Airport, and the seventh busiest in Europe. In 2016, Barcelona Airport handled a record 44.1 million passengers, up 11.2% from 2015. It is a hub for Level and Vueling, and a focus city for Air Europa, Iberia, EasyJet, Norwegian and Ryanair. The airport mainly serves domestic European destinations, also having flights to North America (United States and Canada), South America (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Peru), Middle East (Israel, Lebanon, Iran, Jordan, United Arab Emirates and Qatar), Asia (Pakistan, China, South Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong), and Africa (Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Gambia, Ethiopia and Senegal).
The Barcelona–Madrid air shuttle service, known as the “Puente Aéreo” (in Spanish), or “Pont Aeri” (in Catalan) literally “Air Bridge”, was the world’s busiest route until 2008, with the highest number of flight operations (971 per week) in 2007. The schedule has been reduced since February 2008, when a Madrid–Barcelona high-speed rail line was opened, covering the distance in 2 hours 30 minutes, and quickly became popular.
