Vueling has announced a new business product, Duo, which allows business travellers to enjoy a double seat in the front row at all times plus guaranteed space for hand luggage, as well as a complimentary snack and drink on board.
Duo is part of Vueling’s strategy to strengthen its proposition for business travellers, who currently account for 44% of all Vueling customers. The product will apply only to the four seats in the front row of the carrier’s Airbus A320s. Duo will be marketed both through travel agencies, and the airline’s website.
Vueling is to tailor its winter programme between 30 October 2011 and 24 March 2012 to meet the needs of business travellers by offering new destinations such as Zurich from Barcelona, as well as significant frequency increases on the main business routes. The company will operate 13 daily flights between Barcelona and Madrid, up to nine between Barcelona and Paris, seven between Barcelona and Seville, up to six daily flights from Barcelona to Bilbao, Palma de Mallorca and Rome, four between Barcelona and Malaga and Amsterdam and three daily flights between Barcelona and Lisbon, Milan, Brussels and Alicante. Vueling has also doubled its daily London Heathrow–Bilbao schedule.
