Aena has inaugurated its first official spotters terrace at Madrid Airport.
The dedicated area for viewers and photographers is located on the Iberia Ring Road, near the tunnel that goes from Barajas Pueblo to Paracuellos (coordinates 40.48262,-3.57921), with a total area of 2,100 m2 and views of the airport platform, the T4S and the Control Tower, this new area has a floor space of 132 m2, benches, litter bins, artificial lighting powered by solar panels and a 4 meter security fence. The opening hours of this new space are from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. between June 15 and September 15 and from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. the rest of the year.
The best light is in the afternoon/evening.
Outside the viewpoint, in the old industrial area (AZI) next to the access control to the site, five parking spaces have been set up reserved for users of the terrace.
Those interested in accessing this vantage point for spotters must be previously accredited by going to the accreditation booth, located before the security control. You need your ID or Passport.
