Vueling introduces new Edinburgh-Barcelona route


Vueling, the new-generation Spanish low-fare airline, will launch flights to Scotland on 24th June, 2010 with a three times weekly direct route between Edinburgh and Barcelona. The new route will complement the airline’s existing UK operations from London Heathrow to Bilbao, La Coruna and Seville.



From 24th June to 12th September, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday departures will be from Barcelona at 1130, arriving into Edinburgh Airport at 1315 and from Edinburgh at 1350, arriving Barcelona at 1725. Tickets are available to book online.


“We are delighted to add Scotland to Vueling’s route network,” said CEO, Alex Cruz. “Edinburgh is a great complement to our existing UK services. Barcelona and Edinburgh have strong links and we are confident our flights will be appreciated by business people and leisure travellers alike.”


Barcelona is a truly cosmopolitan city with a Mediterranean climate in the heart of Spain’s Catalonia region. To the west, the mountains overlook the city and to the east is the majestic urban seafront, beaches and harbour, one of the largest and busiest in the Mediterranean. Barcelona is one of Europe’s most stylish cities and is a magnet for the fashion-conscious. With more than 35,000 shops, the city is a shopper’s paradise offering everything from books to jewellery, haute couture to furniture. Colourful markets bring life to the many squares in the city centre.


Also new from Vueling this summer, the airline is incorporating Germany into its route network. Three times weekly services between Valencia and Munich will operate from 24th June, 2010 until the end of the summer season on 30th October


Three new routes between Amsterdam and Spain are being introduced by Vueling for the summer. Three times flights (Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays) are already operating between both La Coruna and Bilbao and the Dutch capital city. Four times weekly flights (Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays) between Ibiza and Amsterdam, will commence from 24th June. The introduction of the new Amsterdam services complements Vueling’s existing services to the city from Barcelona, Valencia Malaga and Seville, taking the total number of Vueling connections between Amsterdam and Spain to seven.
