United offering limited nonstop service between SFO and Barcelona

As a San Francisco-based travel blogger, I’m always on the lookout for new nonstop flights leaving from the Bay Area.

So it was an awesome surprise when this morning, I saw that United will be offering special nonstop service between SFO and Barcelona (airport code: BCN) in February 2019. United will be offering the following flights:

  • February 23 – San Francisco 1:45 p.m. Barcelona 10:25 a.m.+1
  • February 24 – Barcelona 12:50 p.m. San Francisco 4:20 p.m.
  • February 27 – San Francisco 1:45 p.m. Barcelona 10:25 a.m. +1
  • February 28 – Barcelona 12:45 p.m. San Francisco 4:15 p.m.

These flights are being offered as a result of Barcelona hosting the 2019 Mobile World Congress, and will help the Silicon Valley crowd get to/from the event.

Tickets aren’t cheap (I just did a search and it was $2,589 on United) and there is no saver award availability, meaning you’d be paying at least 70,000 miles. If you are cost-sensitive, Level by Iberia offers the best deals to Barcelona from San Francisco (with round-trip, direct flights as low as $308), but this is still a pretty cool offer from United.
