Cheap Barcelona flights
Football, fiestas and fantastic beaches: you can't beat Catalonia for holidays or city breaks with a little bit of everything. With cheap Barcelona flights available from Newcastle you can be in a tapas bar or the Nou Camp stadium inside 4 hours.
EasyJet (easyjet.com) flies direct to Barcelona from Newcastle all year round. Outward flights start at £23.99, with the return legs starting at £15.99. Book well in advance for the best fares. These fares include taxes, but there are additional charges for hold baggage and credit card payments. Travel light and it's still possible to grab a round trip for under £50.
Ryanair (ryanair.com) flies direct from Newcastle to Girona, north of Barcelona on the Mediterranean. Tax-free fares are not too difficult to find, and it can be possible, if you know how to navigate through Ryanair's labyrinth of add-on charges to find a round trip ticket for under £75.
From Girona you can take the shuttle bus to Barcelona in around 90 minutes, or see a little of the charming Catalan city before taking the train to Barcelona. It's also a good place to hire a car and see a stretch of the coast.
In summer, a variety of charter airlines including Airtours, Thomas Cook (thomascook.com) and Thomson (thomson.co.uk) offer direct flights from Newcastle to Reus on the Costa Brava. Reus is only 45 minutes by road or rail from Barcelona, and, if you book a flight-only deal, this can be an alternative way of finding cheap Barcelona flights.
