From Madrid to Oviedo


New Member
Time of past OR future Camino
My flight will landing at 12:45 to probably terminal 1 (ryanair). Then i need get my bag and bus to terminal 4 where is train to train station Chamartin.
15:00 goes train from Madrid-Chamartin to Oviedo.

How much real is catch the train? I never been in Madrid airport.

Because if i dont, then i have to go in 18:00, what mean i will get to Oviedo after 23pm and Albergue will closed (so then i need also book hotel instead sleep in albergue).
Buses not seems like good option, bcause it goes 6 hours, while train 4 hours.

I flew into Madrid and then took an Iberia flight to Oviedo in April this year - perhaps an option for you? But, you certainly can take the C10 train from Terminal 4 to get you to Chamartín. Here are other options for getting to Chamartín from Barajas airport in Madrid.

Hope this helps a bit.

I think the odds are good that you will make that train if the Ryanair flight is on time and you don’t check any luggage.

You will need to get to Floor 1 (which is the check-in floor, I think arrivals are on Floor 0) and go outside to get on the intra-airport bus (free). It passes by every ten minutes or so and takes about 10 minutes to get to T4. The bus will drop you off at T4 on the Departures floor, and you will then need to get down several flights to the subterranean Cercanías station.

The train from the airport to Chamartín takes about 12 minutes and leaves every fifteen minutes. It is very quick, clean, and efficient. Good luck!

We got a decent price to fly on Iberia, it cost more but was so nice to just stay at the airport, and after one hour 20 minute flight not be worn out when we arrived in Oviedo.

I loved the train journey from Madrid to Oviedo. When we landed in Madrid at 1.35 pm in May, we were through passport control and collected bags etc within 35 minutes.

Are the trains to Madrid from Santiago usually very crowded on a Monday in mid-October? Is it necessary to prebook train tickets well in advance? Thanks!
