More than 28,000 seats have gone on sale for Spanish carrier Vueling’s new route between Barcelona and Bordeaux, which will start operating on 15 April. The new connection, which will extend the airline’s routes to Paris, Toulouse and Nice, will help consolidate Vueling’s steady growth in France. For the 2011 summer season, routes to and from the country represent 1,908,000 million seats, representing 20 percent of the company’s total and making France Vueling’s biggest market outside Spain. Last year, Vueling transported approximately two million passengers to or from France. The total number of passengers carried to or from France since the company was founded in July 2004 is more than 6.5 million passengers.
