Vueling will close its bases in Madrid, Coruña and Asturias, without stopping work

The airline Vueling, from the IAG group, will close its bases in Madrid, Coruña and Asturias, although it will not stop working in these destinations, as union sources confirmed to Eph.

The decision, which was communicated by the management to the representatives of the workers on Monday, affects 145 employees (86 in Madrid, 30 in Coruña and 29 in Asturias), which committed the company to relocating.

The bases are airports where the planes are parked overnight, so closing them does not mean that they will stop offering routes to or from the above destinations, but rather that the planes will rest at other airports.


According to sources, these three bases have been “inactive since the beginning of the pandemic”, indicating that Vueling will maintain its Spanish bases in Barcelona, ​​Bilbao, Santiago, Valencia, Alicante, Seville, Palma, Ibiza, Tenerife, Las Palmas and Malaga.

In addition, this low-cost airline from Barcelona has bases in Paris-Orly, Rome and Florence and other roundabouts – that is, the plane spends the night there but the workers do not live in the city – in London-Gatwick and Amsterdam, agreement with the workers’ representatives.

In the past week, Vueling has announced that it will incorporate 12 new routes before the next summer season, of which ten different European destinations will connect with Spain, and which this summer has scheduled 100 routes from its base in Barcelona.
