Bilbao now twice daily from Heathrow

Vueling, which calls itself “the new generation Spanish airline” and also boasts of being the only budget carrier into Heathrow, is to increase the frequency of its flights to the port of Bilbao in northern Spain.  From 30 October the schedule will feature twice daily services, doubling the airline’s capacity to the Spanish destination.

The increased frequency follows a successful seven years of service between London and Bilbao.  “We are responding to increased demand from passengers in both the leisure and business markets.  The new schedule enables business executives to make convenient day return trips, and leisure visitors can enjoy comfortable long weekend breaks,” said Alex Cruz, CEO of Vueling.

Vueling has noted a growing demand from regular business travellers for the route to the burgeoning economic centre.  “This sector is increasingly important for Vueling and we plan to create additional business focused products to join our existing portfolios of services,” commented Cruz on the significance of the market sector.  Vueling already offers a variety of business focused products including Go which enables passengers to check in for an earlier flight than booked if required; Duo allows clients to buy the middle seat of three for extra space. www.vueling.com
