+- 30 new destinations from their BCN hub. Important expansion in Northern Europe and Germany (including Finland and LUX where VY is not present to date), new airports in Italy, France and Maghreb... and at last VY to London (LGW) from BCN.

Why would they launch flights to Luxemburg? Wouldn't that kill their Strasbourg flights?

I hope not. I think that there is a market for both cities for Vueling. Wait and see

I would be surprised if this announcement did not include Vueling's long awaited narrow body order, emphasising the implications it will have for new routes and network expansion. They are set to have made a decision by the end of this summer, so this timing would be right.

If so, my prediction is C Series (I can see either/both models working) and A320NEO, outside chance of a few firm or optional A321NEOs.

According to Preferente.com a historical change for Vueling is about to be announced. My Spanish is not that good but I believe it says that that 10 planes will be added to the fleet and 20 new routes to Nordic countries, Germany and Africa will be announced.


Next flight: AMS-PEK

Unrelated to this, but has VY ceased BCN-SOU? It no longer appears in its pull-down menu. I don't recall reading anything about it.

Yes Vueling ended it and FlyBe have picked the route up with E95 equipment from next year, which is a better fit I think.

Maybe relocation away from BCN in fear of Catalan secession?

Off topic: while browsing through Spanish newspapers I read that Islas has shut down. Shame really, as they were cheaper than Binter who now have no competition in the Canaries. Don't know if that's already being discussed elsewhere.

Anyway, C-Series is very possible also.

A LIS base is possible - there is certainly a market for African destinations from here.

Preferente.com says VY are to announce the creation of 500 new jobs.
That would be way more than 2 full sets of crew plus the odd technician for 20 new a/c.

Ah, yes. Thanks. I did a quick fare search and the minimum one-way all-in is a good £20-30 more than VY was charging which is completely unsurprising. As you said, it's probably more logical that BE is operating it - given its huge dominance and awareness in SOU's catchment, with most on SOU-BCN-SOU surely being UK outbound - and with a better-sized aircraft.

And presumably connections offered from it's other UK routes into SOU. No doubt Vueling would have also seen a feed from their hub at BCN, but this strikes me as a city break route, so I would expect it to fare better with the feed at the UK end.

Additionally they have also launched EXT-BCN twice weekly.

It is almost sure that the new destinations will be:

ALGIERS
BANJUL
BARI
BERGEN
CASABLANCA
CATANIA
DORTMUND
DRESDEN
DUSSELDORF
FEZ
FRANKFURT
FUERTEVENTURA
GOTHENBURG
HANNOVER
HELSINKI
KOS
LONDON-GATWICK
LUXEMBOURG
NADOR
ORAN
OSLO
PAMPLONA
RENNES
RODHES
SOFIA
STUTTGART
TANGER
VALLADOLID

Not all may be from BCN, though, but most yes. We've got that list from an internal script in Vueling's website.

A new base in LIS would be nice, as FR dominates in OPO and FAO. New CWL-AGP was announced a few weeks ago!

If confirmed, that will be a huge increase in Germany. VY already serves MUC BER HAM and NUE. Now with FRA DUS STR HAJ DTM and DRS all the main airports will be connected to the Vueling' s network. Strong competitor for AB and 4U.

35 r2rho : Agree, while nice to see them expand it is very BCN-centric. I would have liked to see growth in CDG or AMS for instance. BCN is great to serve Spain
