Vueling fined €340,000 for last summer's cancellations and delays
24 July 2017 @ 16:46

CONSUMER authorities in the Balearic Islands have fined low-cost airline Vueling €340,000 for last year's spate of cancellations and delays.

Over 191,000 passengers were left stranded with no information or real assistance back in June and July 2016 in the Balearics alone, where two thirds of the 2,411 scheduled flights were beset with problems leading to their taking off late or not at all.

This is the largest fine as yet ever imposed by consumer authorities in the region in connection with air travel.

It was initially set at €320,000, but was increased by a further €20,000 because the Catalunya-based airline 'repeatedly ignored' requests from government bodies to provide information about why the cancellations and delays occurred
