tips for booking your flight - Granada, spain programs
Most international flights from the US to Granada transit through Madrid (MAD).
The Madrid airport has multiple terminals. Make sure your flight lands in T4S (Terminal 4) and not any other terminal. Avoid airlines that do not land in T4 or T4S. Otherwise, you will have to leave the terminal you arrive at, get your luggage, transit to T4 and have to check in again. The main airline for T4 is American Airlines.
When booking, make sure you have enough layover time; do not book flights with less than a 2 hour layover in the Madrid airport, especially if you arrive at another terminal that is not T4 and need to collect your luggage and go through check in again for the flight to Granada.
Purchase your tickets from the same airline so that your luggage travels through to Granada. Also, in case of delays the airline will be responsible for finding you a seat in the next flight if you miss your intended connection.
Once you purchase your flight, send Arcos a copy of the full itinerary so that we can review it.
An Arcos director will be inside the boarding area of the Madrid airport in T4 (Terminal 4) to assist participants. *

If you cannot abide by these travel recommendations for any reason (for example, you arrive early with family, are arriving in Granada by train, etc.) please contact us with a full copy of your travel plans so that we can advise accordingly and accommodate as best we can.
If you choose other means of transportation from the Madrid airport to Granada (train, bus) please know that we do not have a team member in the Madrid bus or train station. We will be more than happy to assist you with information about where to buy tickets, how to get to the stations, etc. We will pick you up at the Granada train or bus station.
Please reach out if you have any questions before purchasing.
