Vueling Airlines is a low-cost carrier based in Barcelona, Spain. It operates out of its primary hub at Barcelona-El Prat Airport. The name of the airline is based on the Spanish word 'Vuela' which very aptly means 'flight'.
The carrier is the second largest airline in Spain and commenced operations in 2004. It currently serves more than 100 destinations all over the world. The airline believes firmly that flying should be a true pleasure for passengers, and paying less does not mean enjoying less services or comfort.
In November 2013, Vueling Airlines won the Regional Airline of the Year award at the CAPA World Aviation Summit in Amsterdam.
The airline covers a wide network of cities in Europe, and some in Africa. Passengers from the Middle East may choose it as a preferred airline when flying between these destinations as part of their itinerary.
Their fleet consists mainly of Airbus A320 aircraft, along with a few A319. They also have the new and modern A320neo aircraft on order to provide even better comfort and safety to passengers.
