Low-cost flights spanish tracker
“Can you tell me a site where I can find a cheap flight from Malaga to Barcelona next weekend?” someone asked the other day. Fortunately, we were familiar with this very successful Barcelona-based start-up.
Atrapalo (“Catch it!”) has cut-price theatre and concert tickets, deals on Barcelona hotels and car rentals, as well as flights. It also covers most of Spain’s top destinations (particularly Madrid but also places like Granada, Seville and so on).
We liked the savings we got on the Malaga flight: we got it down to €180, compared with the €480 that had been quoted by a travel agent.

So, we’ve listed the following airlines. All offer low-cost and budget flights to and/or from Barcelona. Where are you coming from?
