Vueling has put on sale the tickets for the summer campaign, which will include 317 routes that will add an average of 1,800 weekly flights, according to a statement released by the company this Monday. The airline, belonging to the IAG group, has underlined that more domestic routes will be operated than in 2019 (111 now compared to 93 then) and indicates that it will have 12 unpublished international routes, with which it plans to increase Spain’s connectivity with Denmark (Copenhagen and Billund), Portugal (Porto) or the United Kingdom (London), among other locations, as long as mobility restrictions allow.
In statements sent together with the statement, the president of Vueling, Marco Sansavini, pointed out that “the recovery of mobility this summer will be essential to reactivate economic and social life.” He added that, in his opinion, “it is necessary that restrictions be progressively lifted and health passports that facilitate mobility be implemented.” The commercial director of the Spanish airline, Manuel Ambriz, has said in turn that the “priority” of the company is “to guarantee maximum health security, as well as offer flexibility and confidence” to users.
