Vueling Airlines adds Barcelona-Sofia route

Vueling Airlines SA is expanding its service offerings to its passengers with the launch of a new regular flight from Barcelona, Spain, to Sofia, Bulgaria. The first flight from the second largest Spanish city to Bulgaria’s capital has been scheduled on May 26. Succeeding flights are expected every Monday and Thursday.

The Spanish low-cost airline company is increasingly becoming one of the busiest airlines in Europe in recent years. Founded in 2004, Vueling Airlines has become the second largest Spanish airline. Its extensive flight services allow customers with travel options among 118 destinations in Europe, Africa and Asia. Today, the airline company has a total of 82 family Airbus A320 aircraft.

Customers flying from Sofia can choose from Vueling Airlines’ travel options to various Spanish cities, most particularly Alicante, Almeria, Bilbao, Oviedo, Sevilla, Santander, San Sebastian and Spanish islands such as Tenerife and Menorca. Among the airline company’s other strategic connections include several airports in North and Central Africa. Algeria, Casablanca, Marrakech, Tangier and Dakar are some of the countries that are covered in the Vueling Airlines’ services.

Cost-efficiency and shorter travel time are major reasons behind Vueling Airlines’ policy involving flights to major airports, which sets it apart from other low cost airlines, according to the airline’s corporate website.

Bulgaria Air is presently the sole service provider for flights bound for Barcelona.
