Madrid Airport!

Madrid Barajas International Airport (IATA: MAD, ICAO: LEMD), located northeast of Madrid's city center, is the most important international and domestic gateway in Spain, the Iberian Peninsula and southern Europe. Opened in 1928, the airport has grown to be one of the most important aviation centers of Europe. Barajas serves as the gateway to the Iberian peninsula from the rest of Europe and the world, particularly Latin America. In 2006, more than 45 million[1] passengers used Barajas; it ranks as the world's 13th—and Europe's fifth—busiest airport. Barajas is the primary hub and maintenance base for Iberia Airlines. Consequently, Iberia is responsible for more than 60 percent of Barajas' traffic. The Madrid - Barcelona air route (known as the "air bridge" in Spain) is currently the busiest in the world.
