Spanish low cost airline Vueling has announced a new route from Cardiff to Barcelona. The flight will run three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday & Saturdays. Flights start on 27th March 2012 with one-way tickets starting from £26. This is the airline's first route outside of Heathrow and the first direct flight from the UK to Barcelona.
Patrick Duffy, Cardiff Airport’s Managing Director commented: “It is extremely pleasing to welcome a new airline and a new route to Cardiff Airport. The Vueling service can be of great benefit to the region as the airline will not only offer Welsh passengers the chance to visit one of Europe’s most famous cities but can also bring inbound passengers into Wales”.
Excellent news for the airport, hope Vueling expands its routes to other destinations in Spain in the near future.
