Vueling expands flexibility
for its passengers, who will avoid paying unnecessary surcharges for the weight of their suitcases.

From 23 November, the IAG consortium airline consolidates the changes implemented a year ago with the Basic fare, the cheapest in its catalogue, designed for those who only care about the price.

ONE PIECE OF LUGGAGE IN THE CABIN WITH NO WEIGHT LIMIT

From November 2020 passengers who bought a ticket at this fare can only carry one piece of luggage in the cabin, which has to be placed under the back seat.

From November 23rd, passengers will check in their luggage according to weight, with 15, 20, 25 and 30 kilos.

But “to promote the security of always being able to carry a piece of luggage” from the end of this month the maximum measures increase to 40x20x30 centimeters, and most importantly for many, without weight limit.

ADVANTAGES FOR PASSENGERS AND THE COMPANY

For passengers, this is an important benefit because they often prefer to carry personal electronic items in the cabin that can accumulate weight, such as laptops, professional cameras, or books.

For the airline, the advantages centered on streamlining the check-in, boarding and disembarkation process.

However, passengers who opt for the Basic fare can also choose to take their suitcase in the cabin by booking Priority Boarding or by reserving seats in the front rows, which is more expensive.

As for the Optimum, TimeFlex and Family fares, the options of carrying two pieces of hand luggage in the cabin are maintained (one has to go under the seat and the other can weigh up to 10 kg and be 55x40x20 cm).

THE WEIGHT OF THE SUITCASE IS DIVIDED

The other great novelty of Vueling is that since November 23rd it has redesigned its baggage check-in services, where the passenger will pay according to weight, in 15, 20, 25 or 30 kg sections, and from eight euros.

Vueling reminds you that children under the age of two, as well as people with special needs and Premium customers can continue to carry two pieces of luggage on board, regardless of the fare they choose.
