Deb Barber, Chief Executive Officer of Cardiff Airport added: “It’s great to see Vueling is now so well established at Cardiff Airport as one of our key airlines. Awareness of the brand has really increased and is evidenced in the airline’s choice to add more capacity for the second year in a row due to demand from Welsh customers.

"Spain continues to be a very popular destination for city breaks and sun holidays alike and the choice of destinations to Alicante, Barcelona, Malaga and Palma Majorca provide ideal options for both. Summer is heating up at Cardiff Airport!”
