Newcastle airport is set to gain a new Barcelona air route this summer.
Vueling will operate twice-weekly flights to the city’s El Prat airport, starting in July.
Flights, which are on sale now, will operate on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Fares lead in from £28pp one-way, with flights available through to the end of October.
Announcing the route on Monday (27 April, Newcastle gave local agents a shout-out – encouraging passengers to book with their local agency.
Leon McQuaid, head of aviation development at Newcastle 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."
