Vueling to 'multiply' low-cost flights ahead of Olympics, Euros and America's Cup
Saturday, February 3, 2024 @ 8:58 AM

SPANISH national low-cost airline Vueling has announced numerous extra flights this summer, increasing frequency and destination choice for 2024.

In particular, the Catalunya-based carrier plans to 'reinforce' its travel options ahead of the America's Cup, a huge international yacht regatta due to be held in Barcelona this summer – its first return to Spain since Valencia hosted the tournament in 2007 – as well as for the Paris 2024 Olympics and the men's UEFA Euros, which will take place in Germany.

From Barcelona's El Prat airport, Vueling's main based, flights will increase by 7%, with around 90 different connections this summer offering an average of 15 slots a week on each route.

These connections will mostly be with 'Europe's main capital cities', including three a day from Barcelona to Paris and London.

In total, about 60 direct flight routes a day will head for France, of which 50 or so will connect Barcelona and Paris during the Olympics, and connections between Barcelona and airports in Germany will increase by 11% during the football tournament.

Vueling's manager for sales, strategy, customer service and route planning, Carolyn Prowse, explains that the airline's aim is to 'reaffirm its commitment to excellence in operations and passenger satisfaction'.

Independently of major sporting events, Vueling will be organising up to 70 more flights a week this summer than it offered during the same months of 2023 for its existing regular routes.
