On 1 May, Porto Airport welcomed Vueling's four weekly flights to Brussels with a fantastic cake and orange juice, served to passengers on the inaugural flight.
On the same day the first flights to Porto and Lisbon were celebrated with a total of 1,400 vanilla and chocolate Italian ice creams, distributed to Vueling passengers at Brussels Airport.
- Vueling, which in the previous week made Marseille its 14th destination from Palma de Mallorca, further expanded its presence at Brussels (BRU) with the addition of six new services launched during the course of last week, all of which are operated by its 180-seat A320s. With the longest route being the 1,719-kilometre sector to Lisbon (LIS) launched on 1 May and operated six times weekly, as well as the shortest being inaugurated to Venice (VCE) on 1 May at 837 kilometres and served five times weekly, the LCC will face competition on five of the new routes.
