Vueling has begun its new direct route between Edinburgh and Barcelona, a three times weekly service which complements the airline’s existing UK operations from London Heathrow to Bilbao, La Coruna and Seville.
From 24 June to 12 September, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday departures will depart Barcelona at 11:30, arriving into Edinburgh Airport at 13:15 and from Edinburgh at 13:50, arriving back at Barcelona at 17:25.
“We are delighted to include Scotland in Vueling’s route network and forward bookings on the service look extremely promising,” remarked the airline’s CEO, Alex Cruz. “Edinburgh is a great addition to our existing UK services, as well as to Vueling’s expanding route network. Barcelona and Edinburgh have strong social similarities, with both cities being renowned for the arts. The Vueling service will provide the perfect reason for a Spanish/Scottish cultural exchange.”
