Vueling launches 21 new routes; now serves Nuremberg and Southampton

Nuremberg Airport in northern Bavaria, southern Germany, welcomed Vueling with a big gingerbread cake - a German tradition featuring the Vueling clouds. Posing with the crew were Peter Schuberth, Quality Manager Airport NUE; Andreas Humer-Hager, Head of Aviation Marketing NUE; Karl-Heinz Krüger, General Manager NUE; and Jürgen Kohstall, the airport’s VP Marketing. Kohstall and Humer-Hager then presented the cake and flowers to the lucky crew.

The Vueling crew were welcomed to Southampton in southern England with a cake presented by the airport’s MD Dave Lees. Southampton is one of three UK airports – alongside Cardiff and Edinburgh – to have welcomed new routes with the Spanish low-cost airline in the last week.

Celebrating Vueling’s new route from Bilbao in Basque Country, northern Spain, to Germany’s capital Berlin were Patrick Zeuner, Berlin Brandenburg Airport’s Senior Consultant Airline Marketing; Laura Almodovar, cabin crew; Jose M. Sanchez de la Loma, first officer; Leticia Hernandez, cabin crew; Iago Ibanez, cabin crew; Marjan Schöke, Berlin Brandenburg Airport’s Head of Airline Marketing; Valenca Figuera from Vueling’s press department; Juan Josep Munar Siquier, captain; and Juana Lopez Sanchez, purser.
