Vueling, BA’s sister airline, has restarted flights from Cardiff to Spain.
The first flight to Alicante departed last Thursday. The service will run twice per week from August but is currently ‘Thursday only’.
Flights to Malaga are due to resume on 1st August with Palma de Mallorca following on 3rd August. Malaga will run on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday whilst Palma will operate on Monday and Thursday.
Vueling flights can be booked with Avios. There are two totally different ways of doing it:
redeem via Vueling Club on a revenue-based basis (eg the points price is the cash cost of the flight divided by a fixed value per Avios) or
redeem via Iberia Plus, using the standard Avios pricing chart which is based on distance
The former does not require reward seats to be available, unlike the latter.
You can find out more, and book for cash, on the Vueling website here.
