Vueling

Vueling is an airline based in Spain, founded in 2004 by Carlos Muñoz.

Established on the 1st of July 2004, Vueling Airlines is a Spanish low-cost carrier with its primary hub located at Barcelona El Prat Airport. The carrier operates an Airbus A320 family aircraft. In 2009, the airline merged with fellow Barcelona-based LCC and Iberia-controlled Clickair and the merged entity retained the Vueling brand. On the 23rd of April 2013, IAG acquired control of Vueling, which saw the recently purchased 44.66% stake by IAG merged with Iberia's existing 45.85% stake, forming a 90.51% shareholding. Vueling remains a standalone company within IAG.

The airline is part of International Airlines Group (IAG), alongside Aer Lingus, British Airways, Level, and Iberia. Vueling connects El Prat airport with about 160 destinations, with a fleet of about 110 aircrafts, including A319, A320 and A321 models. Vueling possesses operational bases at Rome-Fiumicino—its second hub, Paris-Orly, Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam-Schiphol.
