LONDON – Spanish low-cost carrier Vueling Airlines, an IAG (International Airlines Group) company, has announced the addition of Flyr to their interline platform, Vueling Global.
The new partnership between Vueling and Flyr allows passengers to book and travel to more locations across Europe and beyond.
Vueling Global, which was first made available in June 2021, already offers travellers a wide variety of weekly connections to airports throughout Europe and beyond.
Without having to establish new direct routes, Vueling and Flyr can now offer their customers extended offers between Bergen, Trondheim, Oslo and a growing domestic network in Norway.
Flyr will be offering travel opportunities to its guests outside of Europe and it will be possible to book a journey now from Oslo to Malaga with Flyr and then continuing with Vueling to a number of connections in the Middle East and North Africa.
Travel technology provider Dohop
The partnership is powered by travel technology provider Dohop, whose API-based technology allows airlines to build partnerships and provide better connectivity to their passengers.
A streamlined booking process allows passengers to book a connecting journey in one single booking process. In the event of a delay or disruption, Dohop services the connection while the airlines maintain customer ownership.
“We are delighted to enable connectivity between two of Europe’s most innovative airlines,” said Sarah Hanan, Chief Commercial Officer at Dohop.
“Since launching Vueling Global, it has been our pleasure to work with our partners in Barcelona to grow the platform, and adding Flyr, a dynamic airline focused on the future to this, showcases how forward-thinking airlines are developing partnerships for the benefit of their customers,”she added.
