Norwegian has announced a new route from Edinburgh to Barcelona with fares from £34.90.

The twice-weekly flights depart on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and more than 15,000 seats are available to book. The carrier offers free inflight Wi-Fi to its passengers on its new 186-seat aircraft.

The airline is also considering new transatlantic flights from the Scottish capital using state-of the-art aircraft such as the new Boeing 737 MAX.

Thomas Ramdahl, the airline's chief commercial officer, said: “We have major expansions plans at Edinburgh as our affordable flights are continuing to be a huge draw for Scottish passengers. Last year was our busiest ever at the airport with more than 200,000 passengers flying with us, and now holidaymakers can combine city, sun and sand with our new affordable flights to Barcelona.”

The carrier also serves five business and leisure destinations from Edinburgh - Malaga, Tenerife, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo.
