Spanish low-cost carrier Vueling, in the process of being acquired by IAG (International Airlines Group – BA/Iberia), said it carried 20% more passengers in 2012. The airline has also signed a deal to lease four more Airbus A320s this year, taking its fleet up to about 60 aircraft.
The Barcelona-based airline lifted 14.8m passengers last year with a 2.1% gain in load factor at 77.7%. Whilst this figure is less than Ryanair the airline does not section off part of the cabin when not full, which might explain the Irish carrier’s higher percentage points for carryings.
From the UK Vueling will be expanding flights in 2013 including a double daily from Gatwick to Barcelona, and from Heathrow to Florence and Majorca, La Coruña and Bilbao already established. (BTN 26 November and 10 December) www.vueling.com
