Vueling has announced a new summer seasonal route between Newcastle and Barcelona.
Between July and October 2021, the twice-weekly service will run on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Since Easyjet’s base at the airport closed last year, Newcastle has been without direct flights to the Catalan capital.
Flight VY8782 would leave Barcelona at 1305, arriving in Newcastle at 1445, before returning to Barcelona as flight VY8783, leaving Newcastle at 1525 and arriving at 1900. Fares start at £28 round trip.
Leon McQuaid, head of aviation production at Newcastle International Airport, commented on the news:
“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.”
In February, Loganair, a Scottish airline, unveiled plans for a new service between Newcastle and Jersey this summer.
