  • Vueling commenced services on 12 new routes between 24 March and 2 April. On 25 March the carrier welcomed Leeds Bradford (LBA) and Liverpool (LPL) in the UK to its network with flights from Barcelona (BCN). Commenting on the launch of services from the former airport, Tony Hallwood, Leeds Bradford Airport’s Aviation Development Director, commented: “We are delighted to see Vueling commence services from Leeds Bradford creating inbound tourism opportunities to the cities of Leeds, York and Harrogate. We expect to see the airline become a firm favourite with our passengers as they choose to fly to the Catalonian capital, Barcelona and onward to a wide number of destinations previously unserved from Leeds Bradford.” Of Vueling’s 12 new routes nine will face direct competition. All will be served by the carrier’s fleet of A320s while the average weekly frequency of the new routes is a relatively low 2.4. Vote for Liverpool Airport’s cake in this week’s competition.
