Following a positive response from Welsh travellers for flights to Spain from Cardiff, Vueling has increased services to Malaga and Alicante.
Flights have been added to both Malaga and Alicante starting on 23 March in time for the Easter holidays. There will also be additional flights to Malaga on a Wednesday throughout August and September, taking into account the increased demand during the school holidays.
Spencer Birns, head of air service development and commercial operations at Cardiff Airport, commented, “It’s great to see Welsh passengers using the Vueling flights and those that have travelled with them already are re-booking because of the competitive pricing and quality product. We would urge more Welsh passengers to support their local airport and fly with Vueling this summer.”
Javier Suarez, Vueling´s routes manager, added, “Vueling is satisfied with the success of our routes from Cardiff Airport and the increase on the Cardiff–Malaga route underlines our commitment to offer more seats with low fares and high quality to travellers from South Wales.“
Vueling operate flights to Alicante, Barcelona, Malaga and Palma Majorca from Cardiff starting on 23 March. Direct flights from Cardiff to Palma Majorca will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 20 June.
Flights to Alicante and Malaga will also operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 23 March. Wednesday flights to Malaga will be available during August and September.
