​The Spanish airline Vueling announced that it will have direct flights between Porto and Bilbao from July 2nd, according to information revealed by Francisco de Sá Carneiro Airport.

This Vueling route, which will have three weekly frequencies - Monday, Friday and Sunday - on an Airbus 320 with 180 seats, following the reformulation of the airline’s offer from Porto, which includes the interruption of direct flights to Amsterdam and Zurich and the announced increase for Barcelona with a third daily flight and for Paris with three weekly flights to Charles de Gaulle airport.

Bilbao had also been announced by the airline Volotea as a new direct destination from Francisco de Sá Carneiro Airport, with a two-weekly service from April 14th.

As Porto Airport emphasizes, it should be noted that Vueling already has a history of "competitiveness" with Volotea in Bilbao in recent years, having announced several routes right after its rival has done it.

With the new route, Vueling's estimated increase in capacity in Porto rises to almost 45,000 additional seats in summer 2019 (S19), which represents a 13% increase over the airline's offer in the same period of 2018.
