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.
El Prat’s leading airline consolidates its position and bolsters trans-European traffic.
This partnership is the first between the two airlines and follows Qatar’s incorporation into oneworld alliance in 2013.
Barcelona, September 19th, 2014–. Vueling and Qatar Airways have signed an interline agreement that will enable Qatar’s premier airline to increase the number of passengers to Europe, as well as strengthen Vueling’s Barcelona hub and boost trans-European traffic thanks to long-haul connections. El Prat airport is Vueling’s main hub where the Spanish company has 38% market share, with direct flights to 130 destinations and up to 11,000 connections across Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
British Airways customers will be able to book Vueling flights through all BA sales channels, including ba.com, and collect Avios on these bookings. The codeshare routes are largely centred on Vueling’s operation in Italy with 37 international and 11 domestic routes. These include the destinations, new to BA customers, of Catania, Palermo, Bari, Genoa, Turin, Lamezia, Alicante, Amsterdam, Athens, Munich or Dubrovnik. Other new routes on offer through the codeshare include Heathrow to Bilbao and La Coruña, Cardiff to Malaga and Alicante, and Edinburgh to Barcelona. Tickets for the codeshare routes go on sale from 17 June for travel from 24 June, 2014.
