    fly vs. flying

    Are both sentences correct:
    1. I'll fly next week to Spain.
    2. I'm flying next week to Spain.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Re: fly vs. flying

    They're both grammatically correct. The natural word order is different though: I'll fly to Spain next week. I'm flying to Spain next week.

    We use the present continuous ("I'm flying") to talk about near-future events much more often than the simple future.
