“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.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
