Faster Flying

Europe opens up

New codeshares with Vueling means more European routes for BA customers.

British Airways is offering customers access to more routes by adding its flight code to more than 170 Vueling services. The codeshare routes are largely centred on Vueling’s operation in Italy, with 37 international and 11 domestic routes available from Vueling’s Rome Fiumicino base. These include the new desintions to BA customers of Brindisi, Palermo, Lamezia, Valencia, Split and Nantes.

Other new routes on offer through the codeshare include Heathrow to Bilbao and La Coruña, Cardiff to Malaga and Alicante, and Edinburgh to Barcelona. Customers will earn Avios on their bookings.

Steve Ronald, British Airways’ head of alliances, said: “Our customers will have an even greater choice of routes, destinations and fares now that we have joined forces with Vueling. As we forge ever closer relationships with our fellow IAG airlines, Iberia and Vueling, our customers will be able to access all corners of Europe and beyond, with one simple booking on and the enticement of the collection of reward points for their loyalty.”
