Connections intensify between Helsinki and Barcelona
The Spanish low-cost airline Vueling launched flights between its Barcelona base and Helsinki Airport on May 17. The carrier, recently confirmed as part of International Airlines Group (IAG), will operate the route three times a week with an Airbus A320.
Serious competition is building on the route. During the summer months, in addition to Vueling, Finnair will fly to Barcelona twice a day and Norwegian six times a week. Around 580,000 passengers fly from Finland to Spain every year. Last year, more than 80,000 passengers flew from Finland to Barcelona.
In addition to the Helsinki route, Vueling is introducing 27 new routes from Barcelona in the summer.
