Vueling Airlines: An Overview

Vueling Airlines is a Spain-based airline, predominantly operating from El Prat de Llobregat Airport, which is an area just outside of Barcelona. Focused mostly on European destinations, business and leisure passengers flock to the airline in the millions annually. It’s not uncommon for Vueling to see in excess of 30 million of them in a single year. Vueling Airlines’ popularity can be credited to its diverse routes and host of advantages, such as free in-flight entertainment, convenient travel itineraries, and top-notch customer service.

The Scoop on Fiumicino Airport

Located in Fiumicino, Italy, Rome–Fiumicino International Airport, also known as Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport, is the largest and busiest airport in the country. It serves as the primary transportation hub for Rome and has over 29.3 million passengers pass through its terminals in 2022, making it the world's 49th-busiest airport. Covering an area of 16 square kilometers, the airport comprises four terminals and is also the tenth busiest airport in Europe. As part of Italy's second airport system, it served 32.8 million passengers in 2022, while currently being the hub for ITA airlines, having been formerly serving as the hub for Alitalia. Additionally, the airport won the "Best Airport Award" in the category of hubs with over 40 million passengers in 2022, further cementing its status as a world-class airport.

Gatwick: A Quick Look

Currently serving as the second busiest UK airport, handling over 45 million passengers each year with more than 40 airlines from all around the world, Gatwick is a big draw.
