Vueling launches route #6 from Copenhagen

Vueling starts eight routes, six from Tenerife South, and one each from Rome Fiumicino and Zurich.

“Ever since Vueling first touched down in Copenhagen in 2012, the airline has grown steadily from one route to six non-stop routes today,” says Peter Krogsgaard, CCO of Copenhagen Airport. The latest route at the Danish airport, from Rome Fiumicino, was launched on 1 June, with this gate lounge celebration.

  • Vueling has been offering flights between Rome Fiumicino (FCO) and Copenhagen (CPH) on Wednesdays and Sundays since 1 June. Furthermore there will be flights on a number of Thursdays and Fridays during the summer season. The Spanish-based LCC is growing rapidly at Copenhagen, currently operating services to Alicante, Barcelona, Florence and Malaga, as well as to Paris CDG, and now offers 26% more seats out of Copenhagen than a year ago. The new route will be operated using its 180-seat A320 fleet. “Ever since Vueling first touched down in Copenhagen in 2012, the airline has grown steadily from one route to six non-stop routes today. The selection of Rome as a new destination fits well into this strategy. The number of passengers on the route has grown steadily since 2008, and Rome now ranks number 14 on the list of our busiest destinations,” said Peter Krogsgaard, CCO of Copenhagen Airport. Vueling launched a further seven routes this week, primarily from Tenerife South (TFS), but also from Zurich (ZRH), the majority of which face direct competition, with Ryanair and Norwegian competing on three city pairs each. Of particular note is the airline’s first ever route to Zaragoza (ZAZ), a weekly service to Tenerife South.
