The Spanish airline Vueling, which has already been connecting Nuremberg with Barcelona for years, is launching another route from Nuremberg from 2 November. Three times a week it will fly to Paris-Orly Airport, which is located in the south of the metropolis of 12 million inhabitants. With this, Vueling supplements the offer of the already existing hub connection to Charles-de-Gaulle Airport, which is served by Air France up to twice a day.
The alternative airport Paris-Orly is only about 15 kilometres from the city centre. This makes the greater Paris metropolis even more reachable, as the two airports are located on the northern (Charles de Gaulle) and southern (Orly) outskirts of the city. The airports are well connected to the city centre by public transport.
The new connection is offered by Vueling on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at attractive flight times. The service is aimed not only at city tourists but also at employees of international companies living in both metropolises. For example, the companies Framatome and Consorsbank, a brand of the major French bank BNP Paribas, have strong relations with Paris.
With over 120 aircraft, Vueling is the second largest airline in Spain as a member of the IAG (International Airline Group around British Airways and Iberia). The airline has been regularly connecting Barcelona with Nuremberg since 2013. During this time, over 250,000 passengers were counted on the route. In the current winter half-year, the connection to Barcelona will be offered twice a week and in the coming summer probably five times a week.
