Heathrow is quickly becoming an important operation for the Spanish carrier Vueling, the subject of a buyout by International Airlines Group (IAG). Florence is to be added as a daily route from next March. It joins Palma as a new destination next year (see BTN 26 November), La Coruña and Bilbao already established. Vueling will become one of the very few Heathrow carriers licensed to serve its home country and an overseas destination.
Copenhagen and Berlin will be served four times a week, while Hamburg and existing route Madrid will operate three times weekly.
Last month Vueling announced the addition of daily flights to Palma from Heathrow. With regular Barcelona flights commencing too, Florence becomes Vueling’s third new destination and the first non-Spanish route from London’s premier airport.
On board all Vueling passengers enjoy free allocated seating and will have access to Vueling’s new concept, Business Excellence, featuring differentiated cabin seats, access to VIP lounges, priority boarding, ergonomic head rests, snacks and refreshments on board, extra loyalty points and total flexibility to appeal to travellers who regularly fly Vueling on business. www.vueling.com
