News in brief:
€10 off your next Vueling flight to or from the UK
Vueling, the sister airline of Iberia and British Airways, is offering a €10 discount off your next flight.
You need to book a round-trip flight involving the UK and book 21 days in advance.
It is valid for bookings FLOWN by 17th March. The Vueling discount code is the catchy UK8WBTK9 and is valid for the first 2,000 people to use it. It is only valid on the cheapest ‘Basic’ ticket type. The code was working fine yesterday.
It is difficult to keep track of Vueling routes, especially as some are seasonal, but I think you have:
- Belfast – Barcelona
- Birmingham – Barcelona, Alicante (starts June)
- Cardiff – Alicante, Barcelona, Majorca, Malaga, Barcelona
- Edinburgh – Barcelona, Paris (starts March), Alicante (starts June), Rome (starts June)
- Leeds Bradford – Barcelona (starts March)
- Liverpool – Barcelona (starts March)
- Luton – Amsterdam (starts March), Barcelona (starts June)
- Manchester – Barcelona, Rome (starts June), Alicante (starts June)
- Newcastle – Barcelona (starts March)
You can book via the Vueling website here. Redemptions on Vueling can only be booked via Iberia Plus, not via ba.com. You can earn Avios on Vueling flights by either booking on iberia.com or using vueling.com as long as you book the “Optima” or “Excellence” fare.
