Spanish low-cost carrier Vueling is to start a three-times weekly service between Edinburgh and Barcelona. The route was previously served by the now defunct Scottish carrier Flyglobespan, and has also been operated in the past by Barcelona-based Clickair, an airline which merged with Vueling last year.
The route will run between June 24 and September 12, with flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, departing Edinburgh at 1350 and arriving into the catalan capital at 1725, with the Scotland-bound leg leaving Barcelona at 1130 and landing in Edinburgh at 1315.
There are currently no direct services between Barcelona and Edinburgh, following the demise of Flyglobespan at the end of last year (see online news December 16, 2009).
The new Vueling route adds to the airline’s current UK offering from London heathrow to Bibao, La Coruna and Seville.
