Cheap Flights To Barcelona
There are a number of airlines offering cheap flights to Barcelona. With Spain’s recent win over Holland in the 2010 Football World Cup held in South Africa, tourism in the country is going to get a major boost as a vast majority of the team consisted of Barcelona players.
I would like to think that increased tourism will help even more airfares go down for those people travelling to Barcelona by plane. Let’s see how that goes!
I personally have no problems with using budget airlines for my travels. Money saved on cheap flights to Barcelona and low cost accommodation is better spent on having fun on your holiday. A decent meal in a good restaurant is more appealing to me than airline food.
There is quite a long list of airlines flying to the city (around 100 of them), but depending where you are flying from, you may only have a few available to you. Nevertheless, the popularity of Barcelona as a destination is high and you are sure to grab yourself a good deal.
Some airlines to look out for that frequently offer cheap flights to Barcelona would be; Easyjet, Spanair, Vueling Airlines, Monarch, Lufthansa, Iberia and British Airways.
Vueling Airlines is based at Barcelona Airport and offer a range of cheap flights for those looking to travel within Spain and surrounding countries.
A quick tip for when you are searching for flights: Barcelona Airport is abbreviated as (BCN).
The other airports in the region (Reus and Girona) are actually over an hour drive away from the city and certain cheap flights only land there. It can be quite a disappointment to touch down only to realise you still have a lot of travelling ahead of you!
So try not to get caught out, unless those airports are closer to your final destination.
Another idea to reduce the cost of your flight is to be flexible with your dates and times. A lot of money can be saved by flying during off peak times on week days. Keep that in mind when searching for your booking, you will be pleasantly surprised. The added advantage here is that the airport won’t be jam packed with people while you are there!
Package deals can often bring in a saving, with some hotels offering discounts when booking a flight and hotel together. Many of these deals will include transfers to and from the airport, which is an added convenience. Check all these things before you make your booking.
