Connecting Flights

Connecting flights

Since we want to offer you the best and widest range of destinations and flight frequency, you'll have the option to book connecting flights operated by Vueling and by partner airlines.

Connecting airports

Connecting flights booked through Vueling allow connections via Barcelona, Rome and Paris (ORY) airports.


You can travel with the peace of mind of knowing you won't have to collect your baggage at the stop-over airport, since you check it in at your departure airport and only pick it up again at your final destination.


You can choose a seat for connecting flights operated by Vueling when making the booking or when checking in online, or you'll be allocated one at the airport check-in desk on the day of the flight.

If one of the connecting flights is operated by another airline, you'll be allocated a seat at the check-in desk on the day of the flight.

Check-in and boarding passes

At your departure airport, you must go to the check-in desk of the company operating the first leg. There you'll be given your boarding pass for the first and second leg. If you are not given the boarding pass for the second flight, you can collect it from the connecting airport's transit office.

Connection times

The stop-over time will depend on the flights you select when making the booking. the minimum stop-over time between our flights is 55 minutes, so you'll have time to get to your second flight.

Leaving the airport during stopover

You can leave the airport during stopover providing you are carrying the documentation you need to leave and then re-enter the airport. It is the passenger's responsibility to have all documents in order and return to the airport in sufficient time to catch the next flight. 

Connecting flights operated by two partner airlines

In the case of connecting flights where each leg is operated by a different airline, for both legs the most restrictive policy of the two airlines as regards baggage allowance and fare benefits shall apply.
