Girona in Spain is to be served by weekly flights from Glasgow this summer.

The service by Thomson and First Choice to the city in northern Spain is due to take off from May 7, providing access to the Costa Brava.

Glasgow airport business development manager, Paul White, said: “Girona is a fantastic addition to our strong and growing list of European city destinations.

“This is the perfect holiday spot for travellers looking for a small, quintessentially Spanish experience, and Girona also offers an ideal access point to a number of popular holiday resorts on the Costa Brava including Lloret de Mar and Tossa de Mar.

“The city is famed for its flower festival which brings thousands of visitors to the region every May. We’re looking forward to working with Thomson and First Choice to ensure the success of this new route.”
