  • Ok, it happens. Last week we missed the start of a batch of new Vueling routes from Barcelona (BCN) because the airline had, sensibly, decided to bring forward the launch dates to maximise the revenue opportunities associated with the early Easter vacation period. The routes we missed were Banjul (BJL), Bologna (BLQ), Catania (CTA), Frankfurt (FRA), Fuerteventura (FUE), Gothenburg (GOT), London Gatwick (LGW), Pamplona (PNA) and Valladolid (VLL). But don’t worry. The airline has launched another eight routes this week, seven from Barcelona and one from its new base in Florence (FLR) to London Heathrow (LHR). Four of this week’s new routes are to airports in Germany; Dortmund (DTM), Dresden (DRS), Düsseldorf (DUS) and Stuttgart (STR). On the Düsseldorf route, Vueling will compete with both airberlin and Lufthansa, while on the Turin route it will compete head-to-head with Ryanair, something it already does on quite a few of its Spanish domestic routes. This summer Vueling will now serve four destinations from Europe’s busiest airport at London Heathrow; Florence joins Bilbao, La Coruna and Palma de Mallorca, with Seville and Vigo having been served in the past.
