Low-cost carrier Vueling to fly to Tallinn

Vueling to launch direct Tallinn-Barcelona flights

Spain’s biggest LCC Vueling will launch direct Tallinn-Barcelona flights from June 20, Tallinn Airport has announced. It will fly to Tallinn with a 180-seat A320 as a seasonal route until September 12.

Airport member of the board Erik Sakkov said that the Spanish airline had taken a very significant step: “Without fearing competition with Ryanair, they have taken this major step and we are very happy about it. We hope that this is the start of a long and beautiful cooperation,” he said.

Vueling was launched in 2004. It currently has 70 Airbus aircraft and flies to more than 200 destinations in Europe, Africa and Middle East.

Based in Barcelona, it carried 14.8 million passengers in 2012. One of Europe’s fastest growing airlines, it is part of British Airways and Iberia parent IAG.
