Vueling was created in July 2004 with an initial fleet of two Airbus A320s, four routes and the objective of providing excellent customer service at a competitive price. Nine years later, Vueling is operating more than 250 routes in 117 cities all over Europe, Middle East and Africa. Vueling has 17 operational bases in Europe and has transported over 70 million passengers.
Vueling is the leading company at Barcelona-El Prat Airport, transporting more than 17 million passengers each year. In order to support such a high volume of activity the airline relies on a fleet of 89 Airbus aircraft. Nine of them are new models with the latest technology in advanced wingtips, named sharklets by the manufacturer. Vueling embraces all technological developments that bring security and efficiency to the flying process. The new Airbus sharklets help the company lower its CO2 levels as well as affording lower fuel consumption.
In addition, the company has recently been awarded the Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certification by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) which endorses the airline as having the very highest standards in both quality and safety.
People are very much the focal point of all the company's endeavors. This is all encompassed by a new brand concept since 2012: LOVE THE WAY YOU FLY
