“We are delighted to see the return of Scotland to Vueling’s route network,” said CEO, Alex Cruz. “Edinburgh is a great complement to our expanding UK route network. Barcelona and Edinburgh have strong links and we are confident our flights will be appreciated by business and leisure travellers alike as well as all the destinations available through our connecting flights.”
Onward connections through Barcelona - Vueling flights offer a wealth of onward connections via Vueling’s successful Barcelona Hub operations, currently accessing more than 40 destinations throughout Europe and North-Africa, including the Canary, Greek and Balearic Islands including Mallorca, Ibiza, Santorini and Tenerife, among others, as well as Malta, Dubrovnik, Malaga, Seville, Rome or Naples, with full through baggage check-in from Edinburgh to final destination. 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.
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.
