Talk:Barcelona–El Prat Airport
Accidents : There was 1 accident on Nov 28 2004 involving a KLM flight from Amsterdam. Just after landing the plane went off the runway at approximately 180km/h for a problem on the front wheel. Luckiliy the plane stopped after few hundreds meters without hitting anything just on the edge of a water canal. Front and rear trail destroyed, passengers had to get out from emergency exits. 16 passengers slightly injured. Picture at : http://www.planepictures.net/netshow.php?id=378569

MADRID-BARCELONA it's the busiest sector in Europe by a wide margin .Please don't post more lies in Wikipedia. You can read the EUROSTAT official european statistics here:
DUB-LHR it's the busiest INTERNATIONAL intra-european sector with more than 2 Millions in 2004, while MAD-BCN it's the BUSIEST EUROPEAN SECTOR with more than 4 Millions passengers every year. I have corrected AGAIN the modification that falsely said MAD-BCN as the second busiest ... .
Another time an irish user ( Tracing route to 83-70-70-134.b-ras1.srl.dublin.eircom.net [184.108.40.206] ) have modified the article with FALSE statestment like this:
"Between Barcelona El Prat airport and Madrid Barajas, 4,444,262 passengers were transfered in 2005 , making it the second busiest european sector, behind Dublin-London .This route it's called "Puente Aereo" (Air Bridge) ."
IT'S FALSE .
Even adding DUB-LHR , DUB-STN and DUB-GTW , they don't reach the MADRID-BARCELONA city pair also.
In term of airport to airport part MAD-BCN (4.571.073) , doubled DUB-LHR (2 Millions) in 2005 .
Also to note the huge new Terminal ( south terminal) under construction rigt now, to enter service in 2008.
I'm just about to add a small section on internet access at the airport. Hopefully you find this relevant! I travel a lot and (sad I admit) sometimes my route decision will depend on being able to check my email during a 3-hour layover or not. I plan to add this information to a few of the airport articles. Additionally, maybe it would be an idea to have a larger section on "facilities" with internet access somewhere within it?

- Also, "El Prat" has been added to Barcelona Airport. I was wondering if the airport's official name includes the nmae El Prat? Charmedaddict (talk) 18:46, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
A new decret from BOE states that the airport has been renamed as "Barcelona-El Prat Airport" since El Prat de Llobregat City Council asked for the change.   Mllturro (talk) 14:05, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
Flights to Charlotte are indeed seasonal per the airline's officially press release (with service starting on 23 May 2014 and ending 25 October 2014). Flights to Philadelphia are seasonal (and have been seasonal for some time) as the airline's booking engine indicate there are no flights available for sale from 5 November 2013 until 18 March 2014. Please provide a source specifically stating that Barcelona to Philadelphia nonstop flights have been converted to year-round (the source provided in Spanish only announces new CLT-BCN seasonal flights and mentions nothing about PHL-BCN flights). 220.127.116.11 (talk) 07:10, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Go-around incident removed
- Removed again (Jetstreamer Talk 10:10, 10 July 2014 (UTC) ). Please discuss here before reinserting the item.--
Inconsistent information about T2
According to the history section, the oldest part of what is now Terminal 2 was built in 1968. According to the terminals section, Terminal 2 was designed by Ricardo Bofill Levi in order to expand the airport before the arrival of the Olympic Games in Barcelona in 1992. These cannot both be correct. Adding cite needed to both statements, so we can get to the bottom of this. -- chris_j_wood (talk) 18:01, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
Please do not add this crash to the accidents and incidents section. The flight departed from this airport but the plane actually crashed in the French Alps which is nowhere in Barcelona let alone Spain. As per WP:AIRPORT-CONTENT, the crash must take place at or near the airport. Citydude1017 (talk) 06:31, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
