On Saturday, NBC’s Carrie Johnson and Tom LeGro/The Washington Post’s Ellen Nakashima reported that the first flights to Spain from the United States will begin flying this weekend.
The first flights are scheduled to arrive in Spain on Friday, while the next batch will begin arriving in Spain and Portugal on Sunday.
In a statement Sunday, the airline said the flights will depart Spain’s Valencia International Airport and arrive in Portugal at 10 a.m.
EST on Sunday and arrive back in the United Kingdom at noon EST on Monday.
The next batch of flights will begin landing in Spain, Portugal and Spain’s Galicia on Monday and will depart from Lisbon’s Pontevedra International Airport on Tuesday.
In its statement, the company said the first flight will take off from the Spanish capital’s main airport, Madrid, at 12:15 p.m., while the second flight will depart at 12 noon.
Johnson and LeGro reported that U.S. airlines have faced increasing competition from Europe and the Middle East as the cost of fuel and baggage charges have risen dramatically.
But the United Airlines spokesman told the Post that the flight from the U..
S., which includes two flights to the Spanish port city of Valencia, is still the airline’s cheapest option.
The airline has also said that a second flight to Spain will cost between $2,500 and $3,000, although the actual costs vary widely depending on the destination.
According to the company, a flight from Spain to Portugal costs around $2.50 to $3.00 and a flight to Galicia costs around 10 to 12 euros.
But it has not provided details on what the actual cost would be for the first plane.
U.K. Airways has been offering the cheapest flights to Portugal, Spain and Spain for the past year, although Johnson and Nakashim reported that there are currently no flights to Europe and that the company has been trying to find a cheaper option.
