IAG’s Barcelona-based airline Vueling has launched five new routes to Spain from London Gatwick operated by two of its most efficient aircraft, the A320Neo.
As part of its commitment to the UK and ambitious international growth plan, it is now operating flights to Seville, Granada, Malaga, Almeria and Menorca and a total of 25 direct routes from the UK to Spain, France and Italy.
Vueling will serve existing direct routes from Gatwick to Barcelona, Bilbao, Valencia, Santiago de Compostela, A Coruña, Asturias, Paris-Orly, Rome and Florence.
Florence, Paris-Orly, Granada and La Coruña are routes only served by Vueling from Gatwick.
The carrier, which operates from a further six UK airports, will continue to operate direct flights from previous seasons such as Cardiff to Malaga, Alicante and Palma de Mallorca, and Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh to Barcelona.
Carolyn Prowse, Vueling Chief Commercial, Strategy, Network and Customer Officer, said: “The UK represents Vueling’s strongest international market growth for 2022. We have doubled our presence at Gatwick airport compared to 2019 by adding new routes to Spain and deploying two new aircrafts from April.
“This commitment from London Gatwick is in addition to our expanded operations from Paris Orly. Together, these two initiatives showcase how Vueling aims to help boost international markets this summer.”
