All flights from Cardiff operated by Vueling, now part of IAG the parent company of British Airways, can now be booked on the major carrier’s website.
Cardiff Airport’s chief executive, Jon Horne, commented, “It’s great news that passengers from Wales and the West [of England] can now access flights through the British Airways booking system, along with all the associated benefits, such as 23 kg hold luggage included in the cost and the ability for BA Executive Club members to collect Avios loyalty points.”
Also, following a second successful year at Wales’ national airport, Vueling has launched the second phase of its summer 2014 programme from Cardiff and re-launched direct flights to Barcelona. It has also launched its first winter programme from Cardiff, with additional flights to Malaga and Alicante, in response to demand from winter sun seekers and holiday home owners travelling from Wales and the West.
The first flight from Cardiff to Barcelona will leave on 11 April and will run every Friday and Sunday from April until October, with an additional Wednesday flight during August to meet the demand of travellers.
