Taking off on July 2, Vueling further strengthens the IAG network from Belfast City Airport, which already includes a comprehensive choice of UK routes with Aer Lingus, a regular schedule to London Heathrow Airport with British Airways and flights to London City Airport with BA CityFlyer.

Ellie McGimpsey, Aviation Development Manager at Belfast City Airport said: “Vueling’s plans to launch a direct route to Barcelona from Belfast City Airport will be welcome news for many, giving passengers more choice for the summer.

“The convenient flight times and twice-weekly service on Mondays and Fridays make it an ideal choice for a relaxing weekend break, sunshine getaway, or trip to the beach with the family.

“We are looking forward to seeing Vueling’s passengers and staff at the airport this summer.”

To celebrate the announcement of its route to Barcelona, Vueling is running a seat sale promotion from Thursday, April 29 to Monday, May 3, with seats from only £19.99 each way.

The Service will operate on an Airbus 320. Passengers that book an Optima or Family Fare ticket can also avail of Vueling’s flight change policy, which enables the holder to cancel or amend their trip for free, should their plans change.

Belfast City Airport also has a number of enhanced health and safety measures in place to help keep its staff and passengers safe, and was the first airport in Northern Ireland to be awarded the ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation. For more information, visit the dedicated Covid-19 webpage.
