Vueling opens Copenhagen-Rome route

Vueling has 26% more seats at CPH than a year ago
The Spanish low-cost airline Vueling is opening its sixth route out of Copenhagen today, this time with two weekly frequencies to Rome’s Fiumicino Airport and more in the summer.
Now that Vueling is expanding in Copenhagen on June 1 with the service to the Italian capital, people from Denmark and Italy will have 38 weekly frequencies between the two capitals to choose from.
Around 450,000 passengers flew between Rome and Denmark last year and the number is growing steadily, at a rate of approximately 8% per year.
“With late morning flights from Copenhagen to Rome on Wednesdays and Sundays as well as Thursdays and Fridays during the summer, Vueling’s new service will be perfect for the many Danes who want to travel to Rome for a weekend break,” said Peter Krogsgaard, chief commercial officer at Copenhagen Airport.
“Being a well-known brand in Italy, the airline will be able to attract many Italian travellers wanting a city break in an attractive city such as Copenhagen.”
Vueling currently operates services to Florence, Alicante, Barcelona, Malaga and Paris from Copenhagen, where it has 26% more seats than a year ago. The new route to Rome uses the Airbus A320 seating 180 passengers.
