A new extended shuttle train service started between Terminal 4 at Adolfo Suárez airport and Atocha station in central Madrid on November 2.

The half-hourly service runs in both directions with fewer stops along its journey than on the normal C1 Cercanías line.  The new service will run daily from approximately 6am to 11pm.

Passengers with the new joint Iberia airlines-AVE tickets will automatically have their shuttle service travel ticket included in the amount already paid. A new walkway and lift also came into service on Monday to allow easy transit between the shuttle and the AVE and long-distance journeys in Atocha.


Adif stated that the costs of all improvements in the project at Atocha add up to €834,413.70, an investment designed to make quicker and easier connections between AVE services and international flights to and from Madrid.

Passengers without combined AVE-airline tickets can take the shuttle service for €2.60.
