From June 20, Spain’s largest low-cost carrier Vueling will start direct flights on the Tallinn-Barcelona line, announced Tallinn Airport.
Erik Sakkov, board member of Tallinn Airport, said that the Spanish carrier has made a very significant step. “Without fearing competition with Ryanair, they have taken this major step and we are very happy about it. We hope that this is the start of a long and beautiful cooperation, he said.
