Vueling, the sister airline of British Airways and Iberia, has launched a €4.99 Winter sale on selected routes.

Full details are on the Vueling website here.

In theory these fares run until 22nd September but you would be crazy to wait that long as I doubt they will hang about.

You must travel between 2nd November to 25th March.  Not all dates are available but Vueling has a handy calendar so you can easily which days are included.

Seats are definitely available at these prices.  Here is a return flight from Manchester to Alicante in January I priced up last night:

Only the €10 ‘booking fee’ kicks up the cost, but at €9.99 each way after the fee you aren’t breaking the bank.

You won’t earn Avios on these tickets (more expensive Vueling flights do earn Avios in Iberia Plus) and neither will you get lounge access if you have British Airways status.  It is difficult to complain at these prices though!

If your ticket shows as earning Vueling points, you may want to open an account and claim those.  There are rumours of Vueling switching across to Avios soon and your Puntos would presumably convert.

Here is the full list of routes which touch the UK.

Birmingham – Malaga

Birmingham – Tenerife

Birmingham – Alicante

Edinburgh – Alicante

Edinburgh – Rome

Edinburgh – Paris

London Gatwick – Paris

London Gatwick – Oviedo

London Gatwick – Santiago

London Luton – Zurich

London Luton – Amsterdam

Manchester – Alicante

Manchester – Rome

Manchester – Tenerife

Newcastle – Barcelona

If you cannot find flights both ways at €4.99, there is another option.  Promotional code FLYNDERUK knocks off €20 from the price of return flights.  The code definitely works but I’m not sure what the criteria are. (EDIT: posted in the comments below)

You can find full details on the Vueling website here.

    Yessss! cheers Rob!

    Weekend in Paris in Jan and then some skiing from Barcelona in March!

    OT: just had a survey from avios about ‘combine my avios”. Looks like all avios are heading for a single portal, as opposed to carrier-specific FFP portals, to enable redemptions with ease on any airline. Reading between the lines IAG are taking a step closer to spinning off avios. Seems penny-pinching Willy is desperate for every penny he can get these days.

    I see a Vueling ad on some pages of HfP. If it appears on yours and you’re thinking of booking, it would be polite to click on that and help HfP. 🙂 It may depend on cookies, though.

    Some comments about using the Vueling website:
    – use Extra Person if you want 3 seats for a couple for extra space. For €4.99 it’s a bargain but less so for higher fares.
    – the payment page has a dropdown box that accepts GBP or other currency.
