Today the Barcelona-based budget airline Vueling is launching a cooperation project with The Spanish Committee of UNICEF to assist children affected by the massive earthquake that struck the Nepalese capital on 25th April. The airline will donate 10,000 euros to the organisation to relieve the critical situation faced by inhabitants, particularly the children, many of whom lack access to clean drinking water and sanitation, are malnourished, have lost their homes, and whose schooling has been interrupted.
Once again at the head of the technological curve, Vueling has developed a native application for the ‘smart’ Apple Watch, using innovative geo-localisation technology known as “Geofencing” to locate the passenger within the airport, and also giving access to Vueling's ‘Bring your flight forward’ service.
For the sixth consecutive year, Vueling will launch services to several new destinations from Barcelona’s El Prat airport, and this year Africa is a new growth area. Starting on 20 June, Vueling will directly operate regular flights to Rabat in Morocco, Yerba in Tunisia, and Accra, Ghana. The new routes are expected to help meet demand especially from customers at Vueling’s European destinations in the UK and Scandinavia, who can benefit from easy connections via Barcelona to these African cities.
Vueling’s app for iOS and Android handsets now allows customers to find and book an available seat on an earlier flight in just a few seconds, with the “Bring your flight forward” feature.
The service is intended to meet the demands especially of business travellers whose schedules are constantly changing. There is no charge for switching to an earlier flight, though the flight must depart on the same day as the one initially booked, and the offer is confined to tickets purchased with the Óptima fare (reserved seat and one suitcase included) or the Excellence fare (all business class privileges, including maximum flexibility).
Vueling once again leads the pack in technological innovation, become the first airline in the world to implement contactless systems for paying with cell phones. On its app the pioneering Barcelona-based airline has deployed two revolutionary systems —Near Field Communication (NFC), and Scanning— to enable users to automatically enter their personal and credit card data during the purchase process. The two systems are available for telephones using the Android operating system. For security’s sake they are enabled only to fill in the data, but not to complete the purchase. A version for the Apple iOS is initially confined to storing credit card data which can be retrieved only upon detection of the user’s fingerprint when needed for a purchase.
