Cheap flights from Spain

Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, in the Iberian Peninsula in south-western Europe is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south and east, with a small land boundary with Gibraltar; France, Andorra, and the Bay of Biscay to the north and northwest; and Portugal and the Atlantic Ocean to the west and northwest. Spain is one of the only three countries (with France and Morocco), that have both Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines. The country’s capital and largest city is Madrid.

Where to go

Among the major cities in Spain are Madrid, Barcelona, Majorca, Malaga, Alicante, Valencia, and Ibiza. The national capital, Madrid, has an international influence on entertainment, media, fashion, science, culture, and the arts, among others, making it a global city worth exploring. Mixed with its modernity are preserved historic neighbourhoods and streets. Its most prominent landmarks include the Royal Palace of Madrid, the Royal Theatre, the Buen Retiro Park, and the 19th-century National Library building, housing some of Spain’s historical archives. The Golden Triangle of Art on the Paseo del Prado is home to three art museums – Prado Museum, the Reina Sofia Museum, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. The monument that serves as the symbol of Madrid is the Cibeles Palace and Fountain.

The busiest international airport that serves Spain is Adolfo Suarez Madrid—Barajas Airport, simply Madrid—Barajas. Some of the busiest short-haul international routes out of the airport include flights to London, Portugal, Paris, Rome, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Munich, Milan, Geneva, and Zurich. London, a leading global city, is a vibrant and multicultural megalopolis that is of international importance for its culture, music, fashion, and trade, among other things. A great way to start your London adventure is from the city’s landmarks, which offer an aerial view of the whole area. These are the London Eye, the Shard, and the Monument. The London Eye is the world’s largest observation wheel, and perhaps one of the most iconic landmarks of the city.
