Newcastle holiday makers bound for Barcelona thanks to Spanish airline

North East holidaymakers are set for a boost as one of the region’s main airports has welcomed a new airline.

Newcastle International Airport has welcomed Spanish budget airline Vueling to the region with new twice-weekly flights to Barcelona.

Vueling, which is part of the IAG Group, announced the decision to begin operating the new route from Newcastle International Airport in April.

Leon McQuaid, head of aviation development at Newcastle International Airport, commented: “It was fantastic to see Vueling at the Airport this weekend and to see the return of direct services to Barcelona.

“There has been an excellent response from the North East public for the new route and I am sure as international travel recovers this will only get stronger. Barcelona is one of the world’s best city break destinations and a route that our passengers have been asking to be reinstated.

“The confidence Vueling has shown in the region during such a difficult time is tremendous, part of the IAG Group they are an award-winning airline serving over 100 destinations across Europe and worldwide. As international travel recovers we look forward to developing a long standing relationship with the team.”
