Welcome to Madrid!

We will continue to serve you at our new facility in the General Aviation Terminal (Terminal Ejecutiva) at Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport as we have supported you for the last 35 years. We want you to feel at home at Universal Aviation Spain – Madrid and return to visit us again and again, knowing that you will receive the same first-class Spanish service and hospitality every time.
