Vueling launches extra flights for summer 2016

After a fourth successful year operating from Cardiff, Spanish airline Vueling has launched an increased summer 2016 programme from Wales offering more than an extra 30,000 seats.

This announcement comes as a result of the airline’s response to the Welsh public who plan and book their flights as early as possible.

Flights to popular Spanish destinations Malaga, Alicante, Palma Majorca and Barcelona can now be booked until the end of October 2016. The extra seats for 2016 come from an increase in weekly rotations across the four destinations, providing more flight choices for customers travelling to and from Spain:

  • Malaga and Alicante will operate up to 4 times per week all year round
  • Palma Majorca operates up to 3 times a week from March 28th and 4 times per week between June and September
  • Barcelona operates up to 3 times per week from March 25th.
  • Winter 2015 flights are also on sale, flying from Cardiff to Alicante and Malaga for passengers travelling to Spain out of peak season.

Debra Barber, Managing Director at Cardiff Airport, said:

“It’s very positive to see another one of our key airlines responding to the needs of the Welsh public. Vueling has been operating from Cardiff for four years now and as such passengers have become more familiar with the airline, its routes and the value for money it offers.

During this time the airline has seen passenger numbers increase with particularly strong load factors during the past 3 months which is reflected in its decision to put on extra flights for summer 2016. We look forward to another successful season with Vueling and welcoming both Welsh and Spanish passengers through the terminal.
