The service is available up to 24.00 h in a week day and 2.00 h at weekends but you have to bear in mind some inconveniences when getting it. First thing first to take into account is that it takes 30 minutos to arrive at the stations corresponding to L1, L3 or L5. Another disadvantage is that you have to valid your ticket and pay 4,50€ extra fee when getting out of the Metro station.
The price of an single Metro ticket to go to Barcelona Airport is 4,50€. L46 bus L46 is another option to go to Barcelona Airport at night, even though you have to be aware of its timetable, as the last one runs after half past twelve.

The price of a single L46 Bus ticket is 2,10€. NitBus This can be a recommended option if you flight is going to take off after 1.00 h. The line NitBus N17 is a night bus service running more than nineteen times from 23.00 at night to 5.00 h in the morning, having a 20-minute frequency.
