Vueling launches Duo seat for business travellers
Published: 20/10/2011 - Filed under: News »
Spanish low-cost carrier Vueling has launched a new Duo product for business travellers, with the middle seat kept free, reserved space for hand luggage, and complimentary drinks and snacks.
The new product is available in the front row of the carrier’s A320 aircraft, meaning there will be a total of four Duo seats available, with the middle seats on each side of the aircraft kept free.
Other benefits include guaranteed space for hand luggage, and a complimentary snack and drink. Vueling says that “in exceptional circumstances, row two will also be considered as a Duo seat”.
The carrier says Duo passengers will also "enjoy preferential boarding and exclusive check-in desks in Madrid and Barcelona".
The supplement for the new product is €60 on domestic flights (each way), and €70 on European services, and is available on all routes operated by the carrier within Europe, including flights from London Heathrow.
Vueling is the latest low-cost carrier to offer services catering for the business traveller – earlier this year Easyjet launched its Flexi Fare product late last year, offering unlimited ticket changes, free checked luggage and Speedy Boarding (see online news November 16, 2010).
Bmibaby also recently launched its FlyPlus business fare, including seat selection, lounge access and no credit card fees, and Ryanair (see online news September 7), and earlier this year Ryanair announced plans to trial reserved seating on routes from Dublin to Gatwick and Malaga (see online news April 19).
