HistoryVueling Airlines, S.A. was established in February 2004, and started its operation only a few months after that on the 1st of July the same year with a flight between Barcelona and Ibiza. In its early years, the airline only serve Brussels, Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca, and Paris-Charles de Gaulle from their base in Barcelona. Madrid was announced to be their second base in 2005, followed by Paris Charles de Gaulle in 2007 and Seville in 2009. After a financial concern and management reshuffle in 2007, Vueling merged with its Spanish low-cost airline rival Clickair. This deal was subject to scrutiny by the European competition regulators, since it would give the airline advantage over 19 routes. It was approved after the release of slots at Barcelona and other European airports. The merger was finally completed on July 15 2009 with all previous Clickair flights and aircrafts rebranded under the Vueling name. The expansion did not stop there, with Vueling announcing a new base at the Toulouse Airport in France and Amsterdam to open in April 2011. That year, the airline company also bought nine more aircrafts from Airbus, composed of Airbus A319 and A320 aircrafts. In 2012 Rome was announced to be a new base, giving access to numerous new destinations from and to Rome. It’s followed by the opening of a base in Florence, which serves four new European destinations including their first domestic Italian route: Florence-Catania.
