Low-cost flights to Barcelona from easyJet
easyJet is one of the best known budget airlines and a pioneer of low-cost flights to Barcelona.
The airline, founded by self-publicist Stelios, is one of the prime reasons behind the boom in tourism to Barcelona from the UK, with flights Gatwick, Luton and Stansted airports near London as well as Bristol, Liverpool and Newcastle.
Other countries in Europe are also served - they have daily flights from Paris, Basel, Berlin, Dortmund and Geneva.
easyJet's fleet of bright orange and white aircraft mainly consists of Boeing 737s, although the company has recently opted for Airbus.
Stelios claims to have adapted the low-cost airline model found in the US, only stripped costs back even further. That means no free food or drink, no tickets and no seat allocations - it's pretty much a free-for-all with first come, first served, although the earlier you check in, the earlier you get to board the plane.
As they are all modern aircraft, easyJet's fleet is comfortable, although the legroom can be cramped for some people. Given that the flight time is around 2-2 1/2 hours, this is nothing than a minor inconvenience.
The effect that easyJet has had on the airline industry in Europe is staggering and low-cost flights to Barcelona and many other European cities have become the norm. Flights can be found from around £20, although it pays to book early to get the best deals and quoted prices never include taxes.
We've used easyJet's low-cost flights to Barcelona on many occasions and although the service is different from airlines like British Airways, the flight experience has almost always been more than adequate - we thoroughly recommend them.
