Leading Spanish airline, Vueling has today launched new winter services from Cardiff Airport which extends its flying programme to an all year round operation following a positive response from Welsh passengers.
The additional flights to Malaga and Alicante will operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays, extending the summer schedule. Flights are on sale from Thursday 23rd May and prices start at 39,99euros.
Following a successful 2012 and the launch of the 2013 summer season Vueling further increased services on their summer programme to and from Wales, also starting services earlier to meet the increased demand over the Easter period.
Javier Suarez, Vueling´s Routes Manager said, ““Vueling has been operating from Cardiff Airport for two years and we strongly believe that the results are very good for both parts. Our goal is to keep on working to deliver quality services to both leisure and business passengers from Wales.”
Jon Horne, Chief Executive at Cardiff Airport added, “We have been listening to what the people of Wales want and one clear message amongst others was year round services. We have made this a priority as part of our discussions with existing and potential airlines to ensure this demand is met from Cardiff Airport.
“I am delighted to say that working with Vueling we have been able to deliver more winter flights to two of the key destinations that have been requested. We continue to work with airlines to win more flights back to Cardiff, creating more choice for Welsh passengers from their airport.”
