Shenzhen Airlines recently launched its direct service to Barcelona from Shenzhen, in South China’s populous Guangdong province. The Shenzhen – Barcelona route has already been inaugurated and operates as a twice-weekly round trip on Mondays and Fridays. 


Barcelona and Shenzhen became “sister cities” in 2021 and the route is part of the cooperation between the cities. That relationship is reported to cover science, technology, culture, tourism and trade.

Privileged location 

Barcelona’s exceptional geographical location and infrastructures make it a city well connected with the rest of the world. Just a few cities in the world have an international airport, a port, and a platform for free trade and logistics activities within a radius of just five kilometers. Barcelona is one of them. It is also part of the Mediterranean Corridor, which crosses six European Union countries and covers more than 6,000 kilometers.
