I am flying to Spain tomorrow and am staying/will stay there one week.

What is the best solution I think both are valid.

    As you say, they're both fine. Feb 27, 2018 at 23:43

    Really idiomatic and really how people say this: I'm flying to Spain tomorrow and am staying there a week.

    @Lambie: "and staying" instead of "and am staying" would sound much more natural.

    @Robusto: I was just going to suggest that. Conjunction reduction is one of the reasons for repeating a structure. Feb 28, 2018 at 3:45
  • There are many possibilities. It's fine to repeat the auxiliary. Just as "natural".

In your example, since the occurrence is soon

I am flying to Spain tomorrow and staying for a week.
I am flying to Spain tomorrow and will stay in Madrid for a week.

otherwise, you might use

I am flying to Spain for Christmas and will be staying for a week.
I am flying to Spain for Christmas and am staying with my brother.

Using either of your choices would be understood.
