The airline have recently said it will offer one flight a week to Tenerife, which is the largest of the Canary Islands, during July and August. This will be followed by two flights a week in September and October, which is ideal if you don’t manage to get away in the summer!

Vueling Airlines will be departing from Terminal 3.

June will also mark the start of two new routes to Alicante and Rome. With Vueling already flying to Barcelona, it would seem that the budget airline are the people to travel with this summer. This expansion of routes is certainly good news for Manchester Airport as well. This will hopefully help to increase the already substantial 22 million passengers a year the airport welcomes.

The airline hopes to be able to offer 108,000 seats over the summer period and with flights available right into the winter months, it seems as if a bit of winter sun may be within reach – and for a good price as well! We look forward to these developments and hope that the passengers get to experience the holiday of their dreams.
