Choose Your Carrier
Ebookers features flights between Edinburgh and Barcelona with the following airlines:
- Aer Lingus
- Air France
- Air Europa
- British Airways
- Norwegian Air Shuttle
The flights offered by ebookers all include stopovers in major European airports. Budget airlines may also offer flights on this route, but their terms for reservations are very restricted. In addition, budget airline flights land at a less desirable Barcelona airport that is located quite far from the city and was built for Spanish domestic flights.
Flight Time and Distances
Barcelona is about 1,030 miles from Edinburgh. The actual flight time between the two cities is about three-and-a-half hours, and the stopovers included with flights listed on ebookers add anywhere from two to five hours to the trip. The stopovers give you time to relax before changing planes, so you'll arrive in Barcelona well-rested and ready to start enjoying all that the city has to offer.
Arrival in Barcelona
Flights listed with ebookers land at the main El Prat airport, which is conveniently located less than ten miles from the centre of the city. You can pick up the rental car that you booked using the ebookers travel planner feature as soon as you arrive in the airport, and then drive it right to your hotel. You can also catch an airport shuttle or public bus to the centre of the city, as well as a train that connects directly to Barcelona's extensive Metro subway and light rail system. Reliable taxis are also available, and, barring traffic jams, the ride to central Barcelona should take 15 minutes.
Attractions of Barcelona
Barcelona is a city that is full of things to do, from viewing unique architecture during the day to dancing the night away in one or more of its many clubs. You'll have plenty of money to spare when you book your trip with ebookers, so make sure to visit and enjoy the following sights of the city:
- Historical and Architectural Monuments
- Sagrada Familia Cathedral
- Barcelona Cathedral
- Jewish Quarter

Getting Around Barcelona
Driving the budget rental car you booked through ebookers is pleasant so long as you avoid rush hour traffic. You can find municipal and private garages near the centre of the city so you can safely park your rental car. Once you park, you can enjoy exploring the central and historic areas by foot, which is how they are meant to be explored. The Barcelona Metro combines subway and light rail. This rail system and the city's extensive bus system can be used to get you between the central and tourist areas and attractions that are less centrally located.
