Starting this week, LEVEL, IAG’s low-cost long-haul airline, connects Los Angeles with Barcelona and resumes its direct San Francisco–Barcelona route as part of its Summer 2022 Program.
LEVEL is the only airline that offers a direct connection from Los Angeles and San Francisco to Barcelona. The route from Los Angeles, the airline’s highlight for this summer season, will initially operate with three frequencies a week, on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and, as of June 1, an additional frequency will be added on Wednesdays, taking the total up to four. The route from San Francisco resumes with four weekly frequencies, including operations on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
This low-cost company is characterized by offering tailor-made customer experiences with very affordable prices. In fact, both routes to Barcelona are on sale from $479 round trip from Los Angeles and from $509 round trip from San Francisco.
The routes from Los Angeles and San Francisco are two of four routes that LEVEL will operate in the United States during this 2022 summer season. In addition to Los Angeles and San Francisco, LEVEL is also flying to Barcelona from New York and a Boston–Barcelona route will be added on May 1.
Moreover, the airline’s codeshare with American Airlines and Alaska Airlines links the city of Barcelona with the US market thanks to the connecting reservations to and from destinations offered by those airlines. Thus, this codeshare provides the destinations of American Airlines and Alaska Airlines with a greater number of connections to Barcelona and other Spanish and European destinations through the network of Vueling, IAG’s low-cost short/medium-haul airline.
LEVEL will offer more than 11,000 weekly seats on its routes to the United States, which is more than double what it offered in 2019, before the pandemic.
Barcelona is a cosmopolitan destination in Spain. Surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea and the art of Gaudí, the city offers its visitors a vast array of culture, history, and spectacular beaches for fun or just relaxing. The city is also well known for its rich gastronomy, with restaurants for every taste.
