Vueling announces: flight Ancona-Barcelona


Vueling, the airline company making part of the IAG group (International Airlines Group), has announced the return of a strategic connection for the summer season. As of 21 June, after several years, the Ancona-Barcelona connection will be back in operation, with 2 departures throughout the summer, every Monday and Friday.

The Ancona airport is part of the Spanish airline’s offer, which is ready to give new momentum to the summer season with the addition of a further connection to its international hub, namely the Barcelona El Prat base.

“Today, we are very happy to announce a great comeback among the summer flights operated by Vueling. Indeed, after many years, the connection between Ancona airport and our international hub, namely Barcelona El Prat, will be back in June”, said Charlotte Dumesnil, Director of Sales, Distribution and Alliances.

“The fact that an airline like Vueling is part of our airport network is a great honour. It is important to underline the fundamental role that the flights to Barcelona will play for our region and for the whole of central Italy, as they will promote the development of leisure traffic by providing the opportunity to fly to one of the most popular destinations for our travellers. The presence of Vueling in Ancona is a further addition to our range of products and will make the Marche region increasingly connected with the main European destinations. It is also an opportunity to introduce our beautiful region to incoming passengers”, said Mr. Carmine Bassetti, Managing Director of Aerdorica.

The line will be operational as of 21 June and will provide passengers departing from the Marche region with a strategic connection to one of Europe’s most beautiful capitals, as well as with the possibility of reaching the Canary and Balearic Islands via Barcelona.

Health and safety measures

The airline has put the health safety of its customers and crew at the top of its priority list, and to this end, since the start of the pandemic, it has been implementing the recommendations made by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in collaboration with the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC):

  1. Before flying, Vueling recommends that you use the online check-in service whenever possible.
  2. It is also very important that customers check the documentation and any tests required for their entry into other countries (
  3. Following the recommendation of the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency), Vueling has reduced the amount of hand baggage allowed on board (bag or briefcase) to a minimum, in order to minimise the possibility of contact inside the aircraft.
  4. As on all public transport, the use of masks – whether surgical or higher-protection – is compulsory for flying.
  5. On board, the air filters on Vueling aircraft freshen the air every 3 minutes by purifying it and mixing it with fresh air from outside. Said aircraft are equipped with HEPA filters that help prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses and ensure a high level of protection, with the possibility of eliminating bacteria and viruses with a 99.99% efficiency. Vueling has also improved the cleaning procedures carried out inside its aircraft, both in terms of frequency and the use of products specified by the EASA Safety Agency.

In addition, Vueling has restructured its product and service range by adapting it to the current context, in order to offer maximum flexibility for its customers and allow changes in terms of routes, dates, schedules and passengers at no extra cost.
