The city famously offers the full package to holidaymakers – from infamous sights including the unforgettable Sagrada Familia and bustling Las Ramblas to great Catalan cuisine and vibrant nightlife.
“We look forward to welcoming passengers on board our new flights, so they can enjoy our great value fares, generous 22kg baggage allowance, allocated seating and friendly flight times for themselves.”

Barcelona – just voted the number one beach city in the world by National Geographic – is the ideal destination for city break lovers who want to combine sightseeing with sunbathing. It has a number of must see sights, including Guadi’s city garden Park Güell and the popular Barceloneta beach. For art-lovers, the Museu Picasso is home to the World's largest collection of Picasso's artwork and a visit North to the former home of Salvador Dali is well worth the trip. If you like vibrant nightlife, Barcelona is a buzzing city that never sleeps, with enough bars and nightclubs to keep even the biggest party animal satisfied! Those looking for fun can head to the Olympic and Nou Camp stadiums for a tour, or head along the coast to the famous Port Aventura or Tibadabo theme parks and the Caribe Aquatic Park, located in the resorts of the beautiful Costa Brava.
With 2012 seeing key events taking place in Barcelona including the World Sailing Championships (10th – 19th May), European Athletic Championships (27th July – 1st August) and Barcelona Summer Festival – The Grec (June – August), Jet2.com and Jet2holidays are urging people to book early to take advantage of the widest choice and best prices on flights and holidays.
