How to Find a Job at El Prat – Barcelona Airport

Written by Eric

El Prat is the second largest airport in Spain and one of the most important airports in the world. The airport has a large surface, with two terminals and a variety of shops and other services.

Jobs at El Prat

Do you want to be in Retail?  Do you want Hospitality or housecleaning?  Is customer service what interests you?  Or do you prefer to be an outdoor person, working with airplanes, ground service, and maintenance?

Many of the retail stores in El Prat are part of major chain stores.  It is best to apply to the specific company and see if they would have any openings.

Do you have experience and certification to work in a restaurant, bar or café? Ask if you should deliver your resume at their airport location or apply to work with them online.

Are you willing to work around the clock, or do odd hour shifts? What about weather conditions? Are you willing to be exposed to the elements and proximity with noise, chemical fumes, and demanding conditions? If so, service and ground maintenance may be for you.

Getting to El Prat

Barcelona’s airport is approximately 12 kilometers southwest of the city, in the city of El Prat de Llobregat.  It is easily accessible by motorways, roads, RENFE and even the TMB metro L9.
