There will be plenty more, ahem, re-Vueling going on for ground staff at London Gatwick (LGW) this year, following news that Vueling will be adding five Spanish routes to its lineup.

From 1 April, the low-cost Spanish carrier will fly direct from Gatwick to Seville (SVQ), Malaga (AGP), and La Coruna (LCG); then, from 2 April, it will open up two further routes to Granada (GRX) and Menorca (MAH), bringing its total number of direct flights from the UK to Spain, Italy and France to 24.

On something of a roll at the moment, the IAG-owned airline — which already operates from London Gatwick (LGW) to Bilbao, Barcelona, Valencia and Santiago de Compostela — is on track to reach 200 international routes this summer.

Speaking about the new developments at Gatwick, Carolyn Prowse, Chief Commercial Officer at Vueling, said:

“We are very proud to announce the development of our international network from London Gatwick thanks to the coordination with British Airways which enables us to offer the best joint product from London to help grow our markets. This is particularly true after two very difficult years for tourism and aviation.”

And if you’ve spent the last two years (24 months; 680 days; 97 weeks; 16320 hours – but, hey, who’s counting?) feeling pretty starved of travel yourself, it might be the ideal time to escape from Gatwick for a comforting slice of winter sun on one of the new routes.

There would certainly be no more popular country to visit: according to a new survey by British travel watchdog ABTA, Spain was voted the UK’s favourite travel destination for the second year in a row.
