Spanish airline Vueling has announced it is to double the frequency on flights to Bilbao from Heathrow. The route will now operate twice a day from 30 October following growing demand and seven successful years of operating the route. “We are responding to increased demand from passengers in both the leisure and business markets. The new schedule enables business executives to make convenient day return trips, and leisure visitors can enjoy comfortable long weekend breaks,” said Alex Cruz, CEO of Vueling. He hinted that the airline could also launch new business class products in the future to capitalise on the growing market. “This sector is increasingly important for Vueling and we plan to create additional business focused products to join our existing portfolios of services,” added Cruz. It already offers clients the chance to check in for an earlier flight they are booked on and earn loyalty points on the Iberia Punto scheme, as well as the chance to buy the middle east of three for extra seats.
