About Barcelona Private Jet Flights
Barcelona is currently in second place in the European cities featured in the program with more flights than any other airport, followed by Paris. Barcelona is Europe’s fifth busiest airport with nine airports in Europe scoring the highest on the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Global Airline Performance Index. City Airport, which has more foreign flights and people than the Paris region, is featured in the ranking for the first time.
The prestigious Airline Rankings, created by Air Transport World, is the longest-running and most comprehensive benchmarking survey, which regularly examines the performance of airlines and airports in more than 100 countries. It highlights the relative strengths of airlines and airports and allows passengers to take stock of where to go in terms of air travel across Europe. The rankings take into account the entirety of an airline and airport’s network, including all inbound and outbound flights, passengers, staff and maintenance.
It comes as City Airport commemorates the first two flights of its new 200-plane parking area.
It is now evaluating long-term plans for the airport, which is Europe’s second largest, with over 4,000 weekly flights to 60 destinations. The airport has a runway that measures 2.7 kilometers long, allowing for long-range flights across Europe, to the Americas and most parts of Asia.
Tom Williams, chief executive of City Airport, said: “City Airport has been flying for over 100 years. This ranking highlights the impressive quality of our facilities and the significant impact that City Airport has on the regional and national economy. It is great news to have Barcelona voted as the best city airport in Europe, and Barcelona will forever be a great partner of City Airport.”
Barcelona is one of Europe’s most vibrant cities. Tourism is a key economic driver and accounts for an estimated 11% of the Spanish economy. With hundreds of hotels and nearly seven million tourists arriving every year, there is an opportunity for City Airport to reinforce its ties with the Catalan capital.
The announcement comes as City Airport and City Aviation Group sign a joint framework agreement with the City of Barcelona in Barcelona.
Bradley Wilkinson, president of City Aviation Group, said: “It is great news that Barcelona is voted as the best city airport in Europe. We are focused on helping Barcelona grow its tourism and enhance the city’s status as Europe’s pre-eminent city. We want to strengthen ties with other cities and regions in the European region to expand our networks, strengthen our connections and boost the economy. It is important to note that we are also committed to promoting innovation, technology and improving the travel experience.”
City Airport will join the Barcelona City Aviation Group in 2021, which has grown from 50 to 550 employees with the appointment of two new executive leaders in recent months. Its two executive leaders will focus on the long-term development of Barcelona City Airport, ensuring its success and providing seamless travel for passengers.
Narcis Podrez, chief executive of Barcelona City Tourism, said: “In the next few years, we want Barcelona City Airport to be a key part of our efforts to promote the city and increase its position as one of the world’s best destinations. We are proud to welcome City Airport, which will be a key destination in the Barcelona network. We see City Airport as a great partner to develop the Barcelona tourism industry and ensure that passengers have seamless and enjoyable travel between Barcelona, Europe and the world.”
Alexandre Catala, president of City Aviation Group, said: “I’m proud to welcome Barcelona City Airport as the first joint venture partner of the Barcelona City Aviation Group. As a top tourism destination, Barcelona City Airport is a fantastic addition to our group. We will develop our regional networks, strengthen our links with other airports, enhance our technology and provide our passengers with a seamless experience across all our airports.”
City Airport is also building a number of modern facilities including a new airport restaurant and a new transfer lounge for City Airport and City Aviation Group’s European routes.

Cape Town Airport, South Africa
I hunt for a lovely site to photograph near the Cape Town Airport every time I fly from the United States to South Africa. This time was no different. After takeoff, I found an open spot and started snapping away. Unfortunately, at the time I noticed this city and skyway building, my battery was already running down because of the long trip. I was hoping I would be able to come back after the end of my Cape Town trip to see if my camera battery died and to find this spot again.
As you can see from the photographs in this page, Cape Town isn’t the only city with stunning skyways. On my skyway posts, you’ll find a variety of other great city skylines. I hope this one gets you looking for more skyways to capture with your camera and view.
At least two different flights take off from this Cape Town Airport every day. This shows how busy and huge Cape Town is. Right away, you can see that this area is the center of the city. On the right of the photo, you can see City Hall, the capitol building for South Africa.
Since we did not fly from this airport, I started looking around the city for other amazing views to capture. I found a street in Cape Town where lots of people get in the air, look out at the city below, and take pictures. The street is Regent Road, and it is located in the Old Town district. I believe this is one of the neighborhoods in Cape Town that is still being built up and developed. Although, this picture was taken in September 2021. Even though the colors of this area are faded in this photo, I still think the design is fantastic. There are two rows of stores on the street to the right of the photo. There is even a big flight of steps to get down to the sidewalk. The clouds were not very high in the sky at the time and I was hoping for a higher flight of stairs so the clouds could be above me. After taking some of my own pictures in the area, I turned around to look to see if I could find this cool street again. When I did, I got a view that I would have liked to take another picture to give the perspective to show you more of the city. There were no clouds left in the sky in this picture. In the distance, you can see the summit of Cape Town.
Cape Town City Hall and the Weather
Last but not least, I’d like to show you the view from this lovely city hall. The skyway is probably one of the most beautiful bridges in Cape Town. When I took this photo, the sun was already setting on the horizon and the sun was just starting to go down in the sky. The weather was extremely beautiful at that moment. I hope you get to see this view as well.
How I Found Cape Town’s Skyways
In Cape Town, I indicated that I took a different path to snap my photo. This road runs through Mitchell’s Pass, a small town in South Africa. Mitchell’s Pass is a very scenic road and a very nice drive through this part of South Africa. When you drive through this part of Cape Town, you can take a beautiful view of Table Mountain. However, the scenery around Cape Town was amazing. The drive to Cape Town across Mitchell’s Pass reminds me of a road with skyways erected on top of it. I actually thought that the skyways actually are built on top of this road because of the cables.
After driving through Mitchell’s Pass, I ended up finding a flight of stairs that looks like it has skyways built on top of it. It is actually not very far from the city, so I went down to the steps. I got out of my car and started taking some pictures. I took a picture of the skyways, the stairs, and a flying bird. When I was looking through the camera to get the photos, I realized that the bird was taking a flight over the city. It was a nice way to finish up this post.
If you are a photographer and you want to see Cape Town’s skyways in all of their glory, then check out my skyways blog posts. You will find the one I just shared with you here. There are also skyways in other amazing cities such as Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York City, London, Washington, D.C., Chicago, and Toronto. I hope you will love looking at all of the amazing views from skyways too. I know I do!
