Hi all. Not sure if I am posting in the right spot. I have a simple question. I will be arriving in Terminal 4 at the Madrid Airport at about 3PM on a Saturday. I will be sleeping near the airport. I always use a monthly plan with Orange on every Camino. There is one plan that works great for me. I have checked the airport website and can't seem to find any info about Orange or any other mobile phone carrier at the airport. Does anyone know if there is an Orange Kiosk or shop at the airport and the location.
Thanks in advance.

Seems like there isn't one exactly in the airport but one very close in the old part of Barajas itself:
If you reserved your bed nearby that shouldn't be too far away although it's closer to T1-3. Good luck.

Thanks so much oh Kinky One. Hoping there was a kiosk or store at airport. But I found one on the store locater about 3/4 kilometer walk from my hotel. Soooo far to walk ;). Off the next morning to Pamplona and than on to SJPP for a slightly longer walk.

Just a thought, did you confirm the hours on the Saturday for that Orange shop? Sometimes they close at the siesta and do not re-open on Saturday and some are closed on Sunday as well. Just wanted to give you a heads up. Buen camino :)

I plan to walk starting this September and finishing in October, 2017
There is a electronics shop in Barajas where you can buy an Orange SIM card. It is open normal business hours.

There are several Orange stores in Pamplona. Look on Google Maps.

You are right about that and I had forgotten that fact. I found a store open until 9 in a mall near my hotel. Thanks

I see that @lt56ny has found a sim, but for the information of others, there is an electronics shop selling Orange sim cards in T4 at Barajas - it is upstairs.

Is that a kiosk or a tobacco shop that is near the entrance to the Metro? if it is I have read some really bad things about that place. I have no idea if I am correct or spreading bad information. I remember reading a thread about that a while back.
