Sister airlines British Airways and Vueling are have strengthened their links with the Spanish carrier adding its flight code to some BA flights.
Barcelona-based Vueling will add its code to more than 30 BA services from the UK to Spain and Italy in a phased introduction from October 1, starting with flights from Gatwick to Barcelona, Naples and Rome.
The move by the two IAG-owned airlines means that Vueling customers can book BA flights on routes to and from Gatwick and Heathrow. BA added its flight code to more than 180 Vueling flights from Rome Fiumcino and Barcelona last year.
Sean Doyle, BA’s head of alliances and joint business, said: “British Airways’ relationship with Vueling continues to go from strength to strength and customers of both airlines will benefit from the choice and flexibility that these additional codeshare routes bring on routes between the UK, Spain and Italy.”
Fernando Estrada, Vueling’s chief strategy officer, added: “This agreement will enable us to broaden the routes available on our website, thus giving a better service to our customers, while consolidating and strengthening our relationship with our IAG partner British Airways.”
