Vueling, Spain’s leading low cost carrier, will launch flights from Birmingham Airport to Barcelona from 1st June 2015. The airline will start with three flights a week, and grow up to four in August to Barcelona El Prat Airport where it is the leading airline, with almost 40% of the market share.

This new service will add an additional 21,600 seats to Barcelona from Birmingham and give passengers a choice of more than 140 destinations on the Vueling network across Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

Operating 180 seat A320 aircraft, flights will depart from Birmingham at lunchtime and arrive into Barcelona mid-afternoon.

Paul Kehoe, Birmingham Airport’s Chief Executive, said,

“This is fantastic news for travellers as it not only increases capacity to this popular business and leisure destination but also provides affordable fares, regular services and onward connections across Europe with Vueling; a very successful and popular European carrier.

“Owned by the IAG group, Vueling also offers code shares with the likes of British Airways and Iberia, giving even more choice across the group’s network so we are delighted that Vueling has committed to Birmingham and I’m certain the route will be a great success.”

Flights are on sale now with a lead-in fare of 44,99€ via vueling.com, app mobile or via travel agents
