Discover Barcelona with easyJet: Twice weekly from Salzburg to El Prat Airport
Salzburgers and Bavarians benefit from easyJet's summer route to Barcelona / Long-time partner continues to focus on Salzburg market / easyJet route Salzburg-Berlin already bookable in winter
Now that the first summer destinations are finally flown to from Salzburg, the long-standing airline partner easyJet is now also returning with flight connections to Salzburg. "Nobody likes forced breaks and we as airports and our airline partners in particular would now like to finally get back to our core business - flying. Art and culture connect, Barcelona fits very well with us, it is a lively and vibrant city that you simply need to explore", says Airport Managing Director Bettina Ganghofer about the new summer connection to Spain, "and Barcelona is also a destination where there are no quarantine regulations anymore, so people like to fly on vacation", Ganghofer continues. The current infection situation in Great Britain, above all the Delta variant, is giving aviation - and thus many airlines - a hard time. easyJet has unceremoniously adapted the flight schedule and connected the summer base in Barcelona to Salzburg.
From July 20, the flight program of Salzburg Airport will be a little more colorful: easyJet will fly from Salzburg to Barcelona every Tuesday and Saturday at favourable prices! The direct connection can already be booked and will be offered until the end of October.
Back in 2008, easyJet landed in Salzburg for the first time and has been a reliable and important partner of the airport ever since.
Thomas Haagensen, Managing Director of easyJet Europe comments:
"After long months of travel restrictions, there is understandably a lot of pent-up demand for air travel. We are ready to meet this demand and bring our customers to their well-deserved vacations. We are therefore delighted to be able to offer Barcelona, one of the most popular destinations in the Mediterranean, from Salzburg."
With Barcelona, easyJet flies to a top city destination this summer, which offers numerous sights, exciting shopping opportunities, a vibrant nightlife and a perfect location directly on the Mediterranean Sea. In addition to soaking up the sun and exploring beaches, Barcelona attracts visitors with world-famous attractions such as the Sagrada Família Basilica or Park Güell, designed by Antoni Gaudí. For those who love shopping and strolling, La Rambla is a must. It is considered one of the most famous streets of the metropolis and extends over a length of 1.3 kilometers right to the port of the city. If you want to leave Spain's second largest city behind and look far into the outback of Catalonia, you should visit the mountain Montserrat. Here, you have a magnificent view and can also pay a visit to the world-famous Benedictine monastery of Santa Maria de Montserrat.
"This new flight connection is sure to be popular with our Bavarian and Austrian passengers." In winter, easyJet plans to fly to Hamburg, London, Bristol and Amsterdam in addition to the connection to Berlin (BER), and flights can already be booked. "I am optimistic in any case, because with partners like easyJet, air traffic in Europe is going to pick up again", says Bettina Ganghofer, Managing Director of Salzburg Airport.
Europe's leading airline easyJet offers a unique and successful combination of the best route network, connecting Europe's central airports, great value for money and friendly service.
easyJet serves more of Europe's most popular routes than any other airline, carrying over 96 million passengers in 2019 - more than 16 million of whom were business travelers. The airline has 300 aircrafts on nearly 1,000 routes flying to 150 airports in 35 countries. More than 300 million Europeans live less than an hour's drive from an easyJet-airport.
easyJet takes sustainability seriously and is the first major airline to operate CO2-neutral flights across its network. This goal is achieved by offsetting the CO2 emissions of the fuel used for all their flights. The airline sees this as an interim measure until new technologies are available to decarbonize aviation. In the meantime, easyJet will continue to support innovative technologies, operate efficiently and aim for high seat occupancy. Since 2000, we have improved the efficiency of our CO2 emissions per passenger kilometer by more than a third, and we have set a target to achieve a 38% reduction by 2022.
