Newcastle International Airport unveils new direct route to 'cosmopolitan' Spanish destination

Newcastle International Airport has announced its newest direct flight to a popular European city break destination.

The airport has secured a new direct flight to Barcelona through low cost flight operator Vueling.

The airline has today put flights on sale between July and October 2021 to the city, which is home to the Sagrada Familia cathedral, Parc Güell gardens and Camp Nou football stadium as well as a range of beaches.

Leon McQuaid, head of aviation development at Newcastle International Airport said: “We know our passengers wanted us to reinstate a direct service to Barcelona so we are delighted to have been able to secure the return of this route with Vueling, especially during these extremely challenging times.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming leisure passengers back to the airport for their well-deserved holidays.

“We are confident that as international travel resumes Barcelona will once again be a popular choice for the North East travelling public, not only with passengers looking for a city break destination but also with those looking for a beach holiday or as a gateway to explore the rest of Spain.”
