Those looking to get away to a hotspot of European culture and history have a few more travel options now that more flights have been added to Spain’s second-largest city from Pearson Airport in Mississauga.

Airport officials recently announced that Canadian carrier Air Transat has resumed three weekly flights to the coastal city of Barcelona from Pearson.

“Get ready to soak up the sun, explore beautiful architecture and indulge in delicious food,” Pearson officials said via Twitter.

With some 1.6 million people, Barcelona is home to the second-largest population among cities in Spain.

Earlier this spring, Air Transat announced it was once again offering two flights per week to Amsterdam, capital of the Netherlands. Service will increase to three weekly flights between the two points in late May and four flights per week in June.

With the spring travel season well under way and summer season just around the corner, Pearson Airport is offering those looking to get away for a vacation more options when it comes to destinations around the world.

Airport officials also announced earlier this spring that Air Transat had resumed nonstop weekly flights to Dublin, Ireland. The carrier will increase that service to six flights each week to Ireland’s capital starting in the summer.

If Italy is more your taste, Italian airline Neos began nonstop flights from Pearson to Milan the first week in April.

Closer to home, Edmonton-based Flair Airlines has resumed twice weekly flights to Victoria, B.C. from Pearson Airport.

In late March, Pearson announced additional flights to New York City and other U.S. destinations had been added while in early April it was announced flights were being added to various European destinations, including Denmark, Spain, Greece and Portugal.
