Vueling reported a worsened operating loss in the three months ended 31-Mar-2011 to EUR35.2 million, as revenues declined by 10% to EUR127 million and costs increased 5% to EUR162 million, driven by rising fuel expenses. Vueling is however aiming to keep its cost per ASK excluding fuel at 2010 levels in 2011 by continuing with its cost reduction programme.
