Skift Take

The distinction between low-cost carrier and legacy airline has been crumbling for sometime as airlines such as Vueling pursue business travelers with gusto.

There was quite a lot of expectation today to hear what Vueling had to announce.

And there were interesting novelties, as Vueling continues to upgrade its product with the introduction of a business class. One step that was anticipated as it fits into the carrier’s strategy to target business travellers. ┬áSo, this announcement did not really come as a surprise, as I had already pointed out in these pages how there were objective measures to qualify Vueling as a hybrid airline rather than a low cost carrier and the airline’s top managers had already provided some hints about the imminence of this move.
