The low-cost Spanish airline has been flying from Edinburgh Airport for five years and provided more than 100,000 seats from the Scottish capital alone last summer.

For the coming winter season, Vueling will be offering up to 3 weekly flights to its Spanish hub Barcelona, where they also offer plenty of connections to a variety of popular destinations including the Balearic Islands, Canary Islands and Morroco.

There is a map of all destinations on Vueling’s site.

Gabriel Schmilovich, Director of Network Strategy & Planning, said: “We’re delighted to celebrate this milestone with Edinburgh Airport – it’s an important part of our network in the UK connecting Scottish passengers with our Spanish hub”.

Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport Gordon Dewar added: “This is a fantastic achievement for Vueling, who are an important partner for us. Since coming on board they have offered increased choice for our passengers and we look forward to growing our relationship with Vueling and the IAG group, and celebrating many more milestones in the future – and I hope the lucky passenger enjoys their trip!”

For Scottish travellers looking for a spot of winter sun, regular direct flights to Barcelona are scheduled with prices from just £31.99 one way. Connecting flights are also available from the Barcelona hub to a collection of European top spots.
