Vueling inaugural flight Tallinn-Barcelona


Today, on 21 June, the Spanish airline Vueling commenced direct flights on the Tallinn – Barcelona route. You can fly Spain’s biggest budget airline Vueling affordably and conveniently straight to the El Prat Airport just outside Barcelona. From there it is a quick trip to the city centre to enjoy the charms of one of the prettiest cities in Southern Europe.

The early-hours inaugural flight was met with the traditional cake ceremony at Tallinn Airport. On the first flight, nearly 100 passengers arrived in Tallinn; however, 178 passengers headed from Tallinn to Barcelona. “Barcelona is a truly delightful destination for a cultured city break or for just enjoying warm summer weather. You can now fly Europe’s third biggest budget airline to this cultural center at entirely affordable prices. Make sure to take advantage of this opportunity, then there will be hope that Vueling will continue flying also in the seasons to come and, hopefully, to more destinations,” pointed out Erik Sakkov, Member of the Management Board at Tallinn Airport.

Vueling is Spanish airline, which launched by flying two Airbus A320 planes on four routes in 2004. Now, Vueling’s fleet includes 70 Airbus planes, flying to more than 200 destinations in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. In 2012, 14.8 million passengers flew Vueling. Vueling’s hub is Barcelona – El Prat Airport.

To Tallinn, Vueling will be flying an Airbus 320 with seating for 180 passengers. This is going to be a seasonal flight service, from 21 June to 12 September 2014. Flights depart from Barcelona around midnight on Tuesdays and Fridays and from Tallinn in the early morning on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
