Gatwick has announced that Vueling is to expand their operations at the airport – including five new routes – which are now available to book for a well-earned Easter or Summer holiday, city break or trip to see friends and family.
Vueling’s expansion will see two aircraft based at Gatwick and – in addition to increased frequencies to its existing direct routes from Gatwick to Barcelona, Bilbao, Valencia, Santiago de Compostela, Paris-Orly, Rome and Florence – the airline will fly the five new routes to Malaga, Menorca, La Coruña, Sevilla and Granada. Two daily services to Malaga.
Vuelling’s expansion builds on other recent announcements supporting Gatwick’s recovery with British Airways, Wizz Air, Emirates, TUI, Turkish and Westjet also increasing their schedules toward pre-pandemic levels, in addition to easyJet increasing the number of slots they will fly from the airport during the summer season.
Stephanie Wear, Vice President of Aviation Development, Gatwick Airport said:
We are delighted to welcome Vueling’s expansion at Gatwick Airport. Their commitment to Gatwick is really positive news for both the airport, our partners and the local economy, as we continue to grow back following the impacts of COVID. The news also shows how attractive airport slots are at Gatwick.
The additional services Vueling will now be able to offer to Spain and Italy – including new routes to Sevilla, Granada and Menorca – is excellent news for passengers across London and the South East, providing more choice and competition to popular destinations.
Gatwick is the UK’s second largest airport and flies a range of both short and long-haul point-to-point services.
