Spanish airline Vueling and British Airways have signed an interline agreement whereby all passengers on the UK airline will be able to connect directly to the 74 destinations offered by Vueling from its hub at Barcelona El Prat. The same works in the other direction too. Luggage checked in at the original departure point will also be tagged to the final destination if it is on a BA flight.
Vueling already has a similar arrangement in operation with British Airways sister company Iberia.
In 2011, Vueling transported 972,000 connecting passengers, six times more than in 2010, the year that the company started linking Vueling-to-Vueling flights at El Prat. Of this total, more than 700,000 were passengers connecting at El Prat, both for Vueling-Vueling as well as Vueling-Iberia. For 2012 the goal is to reach one million connecting passengers at El Prat. www.vueling.com
