    Question about el Prat

    Funny, I've been on the phone for 15 minutes, talking to several people at the BCN airport, and nobody can answer my simple question:

    Is the airport open during the night?

    I'm going to the Panathinaikos game next week and I have a very early flight out, so I don't want to waste money on a hotel for that night. After the game I want to hit some bars and take a taxi to the airport around 2 am.

    So I thought I'll ask here:

    Is el Prat open for waiting during the night?

    I assume it is, but I don't want to stand infront of closed doors in the middle of the night.

    Yeah it's open. I did it a few years ago. Hope you're not averse to the odd espresso...or seven! The whole trip was great but I didn't sleep for about 38-40 hours.

    Thanks.

    Do you know by any chance if there's an airport-bar or cafe open during the night?

    Yeah there should be one somewhere in the airport. There was when I went, but who knows about now.

    These days there's probably no safer place to be than an airport, even at night.

    Everything you need, you can find on an airport. A place to crash, a place to wash, a place to take a ...., food, drinks - even if it's just a couple of vending machines, minimal chance of getting robbed,...

    And all that for almost nothing.
