Cardiff gets boost with new Vueling routes Southampton joins too

Vueling is bolstering its destinations from Cardiff Airport this summer with the addition of two new destinations, Alicante and Palma (Mallorca).  The new scheduled services will commence from 22 June and will be operated by 150-seat Airbus A319 aircraft three times weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Last October the airline announced a Cardiff – Barcelona service from March, marking the first direct Vueling service from the UK to the airline’s home base.  With Barcelona services will also be Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays to accommodate the increasing interest in the cruise market from Barcelona.  Most cruises set sail on a Saturday so these flights will enable passengers to arrive at a convenient time in order to join their chosen cruise and spend a final night in Barcelona before returning home.  On 23 June Southampton – Barcelona will also come on line, linking Europe’s two premier cruise ports.

Passengers to and from both south Wales and a large slice of southern England will also benefit from a wealth of connections available via the Barcelona hub, currently accessing over 40 destinations in Europe and North Africa, with full baggage through check-in to final destination. www.vueling.com
