Known for its sun-soaked beaches, beautiful cosmopolitan cities and quaint Mediterranean towns and villages, Spain is one of the most popular destinations in the world and we’ve got a great range of cheap flights to Spain here at Globehunters.
The classic view of Spain is of sun, sea and Sangria, but there’s a lot more to the country when you look past the popular resorts on its Mediterranean coast.
For example, the villages of Andalucía in the South are lined with some beautiful architecture and you might be surprised at the much slower pace of life compared to the coastal resorts in the region.
You only need to scratch the surface of Spain and you’ll discover a wonderful culture featuring great food, such as tapas and paella, flamenco dancing and bullfighting.
The major cities such as Madrid and Barcelona are home to some of the country’s best museums and galleries too, as well as great shopping and nightlife to enjoy.
And, did you know that you can even ski in Spain, in the Sierra Nevada mountains? So there really is something for everyone!
Simultaneously passionate and laidback, Spain is the perfect place to come and recharge your batteries while immersing yourself in one of Europe’s most exciting cultures, so check out our cheap flights to Spain below, including business class and first class flights too!

Flying to Spain from the US
Here’s everything you’ll need to know when flying to Spain from the US, including flight times and entry requirements.
Your flight time to Spain from the US will depend largely on where you’re flying from, but you can expect direct flights from the East Coast to take around seven and a half hours to reach Spain.
From the central and western parts of the US, direct flights are much harder to come by, and you’ll probably need to catch a connecting flight on the East Coast, extending your total flight time to about 10 or 11 hours.
Spain is part of the Schengen Agreement, which means that US citizens travelling to Spain for tourism or a short-term business trip don’t require a visa for a stay of fewer than 90 days.
You’ll also need a passport which is valid for at least three months after your departure, although six months is recommended.
If you’re a non-US citizen, travelling for longer periods or looking to study in Spain, there may be visa requirements.
For more information on entry requirements, visit the Embassy of Spain website.
