“This summer season, airports in Catalonia are to greet about 200 daily flights from Russia, double the amount compared to a year ago. “

Well it seems as though that website has mis-translated the original story.
Yes, the number of flights from Russia to Catalunya will double this summer to 200. But weekly, not daily! (and Russia in a loose sense, it includes the Ukraine and other ex soviet countries)
