Vueling Airlines, S.A. est une compagnie espagnole dont le siège est à El Prat de Llobregat, Barcelone près de son hub principal à l'aéroport de Prat Barcelona–El. Son nom vient du mot espagnol Vuelo, ce qui signifie vol. Il y a treize bases supplémentaires à la Corogne, Alicante, Amsterdam, Bilbao, Bruxelles, Florence, Madrid, Málaga, Palma de Majorque, Paris-Orly, Rome-Fiumicino, Seville and Valencia. A fourteenth summer seasonal base is located at Ibiza.
Vueling serves over 100 destinations in Africa, Asia and Europe and is currently the second largest airline in Spain. The airline carried nearly 14.8m passengers in 2012 une augmentation de 20.1% on the previous year, with a load factor of 77.7% pour l'année. Vueling was established in February 2004 and commenced operations on 1 Juillet 2004 with a flight between Barcelona and Ibiza. The initial fleet consisted of two Airbus A320 aircraft, based in Barcelona serving Brussels, Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca and Paris-Charles de Gaulle. En novembre 2012, International Airlines Group, whose subsidiary Iberia held a 45.85% stake in Vueling, offered to buy the remaining 54.15% of the company with both Iberia and IAG owning both shares and not resulting in the company being wholly owned by IAG through 100% of shares. IAG, also the owner of British Airways, plans to use Vueling to help stem losses at Iberia. Cependant, market trends (increased profits and improved figures from Vueling resulting in a higher share-price) had made IAG’s offer a significant undervaluation of the airline. Sur 23 Avril 2013, IAG acquired control of Vueling which saw the recently purchased 44.66% stake by IAG merged with Iberia’s existing 45.85% stake to form a 90.51% shareholding. Vueling will remain a standalone company now within the IAG and its management structure will remain unchanged.
Vueling offers two frequent flyer programmes. Punto (Spanish for point), allows you to collect points and then exchange them for flights to any Vueling destination. Iberia Plus can be used to get flights or be cashed in for other Iberia services or those of the other companies linked to the Iberia Plus programme.
