Barcelona’s Vueling launches direct flights to Accra
The return flights to Accra would be operated every Saturday, with 180-seat Airbus A320s. Flight VY7706 would leave Barcelona at 1700 hours on Saturday, arriving in Accra at 2035 hours. The return would leave Accra at 2135 hours and arrive in Barcelona at 0505 hours.
A statement issued by the airline in Accra said the new route would enable passengers flying from Accra to connect via Barcelona with Vueling’s more than 155 destinations in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
Vueling would begin its 11th summer season with its busiest flying schedule yet, with more than 60,000 flights from June to September, and a total offer of 11 million seats, 13 per cent more than in 2014.
Founded in July 2004, with two Airbus A320s, four routes, and a commitment to provide excellent customer service at competitive prices, Vueling, 11 years later, operates on 366 routes to more than 160 destinations in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, with a fleet of more than 100 aircraft based at 22 airports.
Vueling is one of the airlines owned by the IAG group, along with BA and Iberia, which already operates from Ghana. The industry publications Air Transport News and ‘Agenttravel’ both named Vueling the world’s best budget airline in 2015.
