Madrid is the largest airport in Spain with four terminal buildings and a satellite (4S linked to Terminal 4 via a free train service which runs from the lower ground floor).
Check your itinerary to make sure you are quite clear on which one you are arriving or departing from as T4 Terminal is the new ultra modern building which was completed a few years ago and because of space restraints on the main campus it is located a 7 minute bus ride away from the rest of the airport.
There is a free terminal transfer shuttle bus service which links all the buildings. It runs at 4 minute intervals and is easy to spot right outside the arrivals and departures halls.
If you want to get into Madrid city centre, there are great transport communication links: public transport with a good bus or train service, plenty of taxis or you can book a private transfer.
