I’ve never heard of Vueling. Please tell me more.

I’m happy to. Vueling Airlines, S.A. is a Spanish low-cost airline based in Barcelona with hubs in Barcelona and Rome, Italy. Its name comes from the Spanish word vuelo,which means flight. There are additional bases at A Coruña, Alicante, Amsterdam, Bilbao, Florence, Madrid, Málaga, Palma de Mallorca, Paris-Orly, Santiago de Compostela, Seville and Valencia. A fifteenth summer seasonal base is located at Ibiza.

Vueling serves over 100 destinations in Africa, Asia and Europe and is currently the second largest airline in Spain. In 2014, the airline carried more than 17.2 million passengers, with a load factor of about 80%. I made this map because it’s hard to see the destinations. But if you click on the image below, it takes you to Vueling’s excellent interactive map.

Vueling has codeshare agreements and/or partnerships with sister companies Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia as well as Qatar Airways.

So will booking a European budget airline save me money?

In most cases, yes. For this test I chose Tenerife in the Canary Islands as the final destination April 4 – 20, 2017.
Why those dates? Because they were the cheapest fares available.
Why Tenerife? It’s one of the warmest spots in Europe in April.
