We will soon be only 12 hours away from Spain!" With most of its camp locations in Spain, Magellan Study Abroad, based in Los Angeles, has been flying teenagers for many years between the continental US and Spain.For our California based customers it's a huge plus and an incredible peace of mind for parents,continued Chabaudie.For the students, the new direct flights cut about 6 to 8 hours of traveling time by elimination of any East coast connection and they will be flying planes especially equipped for long haul routes."Magellan Study Abroad, founded and staffed by educators, provides a variety of supervised immersion programs in Europe and Central America.
