Hi all,

after the massive announcement by Spanair to open new routes from Barcelona (as Zagreb, Belgrad, Birmingham,...), seems that Vueling has seen the potential to serve Edinburgh and Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen.

And that's it!!! Vueling has announced today that will start flights from BCN to EDI and SAW from 24 June.

What's your opinion?

And anticipating the decission of Spanair has announced, too, new flight from Valencia to Munich, also starting on June 24.

Nice to see hard competition in Barcelona!!

Regards,

Gerard

Spanair announced flights to Edinburgh last week! 5x weekly starting 21st may!

Do you have a source for this announcement, as it isnt on their website (yet)?



That'll teach you

These routes will bleed to death until only one carrier is left (or even none of them), especially given the diehard LCC nature of EDI and BHX (announced sometime earlier by Spanair). We'll see but beating Easyjet will not be an easy task.

As to IST, I though TK had double daily flights...is demand in BCN really that huge towards Turkey? I'd imagine cruises would charter their own planes anyways.

Having flown both, it should be the other way around.

Agreed!

Why doesn't JK or VY start a BCN-LHR or LGW route, yes I know there is a lot of competition with U2 and BA (don't know if IB still flies LHR-BCN) but hey... London seems to be a popular destination from Spaniards and Barcelona is a favourite destination for brits. and JK being on Star Alliance they could feed passengers to UA, AC, CO, NH, and all the Star carriers at LHR.

JK wants to convert BCN into an intercontinental hub... they could have the means and if they make the right choices they can crack it.

But first they have to get rid of the cheapo charter airline image they currently have and try to stablish themselves as a full fledged scheduled airline. (cough-drop the BOB-Cough!)

MIAspotter.



I think, therefore I don´t fly Ryanair.

As scheduled flight I don't remember it... maybe as a charter seasonal flight...

Don't think on it... many airlines in this route...Vueling, KLM, Transavia and seasonally Arkefly.... a fifth player in this game would bring many competence but I don't believe it.

I think Click did serve EDI-BCN on a scheduled basis but didn't last that long. IIRC started as daily, reduced to something token like 2xWeek the second summer and then axed

I'm talking about the UK-BCN market, to which JK is clearly hinting at. Not with the same destinations -or at least not for now.

Are they. Looking at Spanair's expansion as a whole this summer it seems to be about filling gaps - Birmingham, EDI, Belgrade, AGP-VCE etc, not about targeting the UK or any other market
