Platinum Pass Airport Service

You will be met personally by a congress liaison on arrival at the Barcelona Airport, escorted through passport control and bag collection. All luggage will pass through the scanner for inspection by the security services. Then, you will be assisted to collect your Platinum Pass badge and bypass the queues at the airport or venue. Last, but not least, your airport transfer driver will lead you to the VIP car park and depart to hotel.

This service is complimentary and included in the Platinum Pass. As your confidential passport and flight details are required, Platinum Pass holders must book this service directly via our secure site accessed from the Mobile World Congress Attendee Registration page.

This service is available for non-Platinum Pass guests who may be travelling with you, but the cost for non-Platinum Pass guests is not included in your Platinum Pass. Details on the costs for such non-Platinum Pass guests and additional services are available upon email request by emailing platinumexperience@mobileworldcongress.com. Please note certain components of this service, including express check-in, passport control and luggage collection may be subject to restrictions by specific airlines and governments
