Vueling, the Spanish low-cost airline announced last week that this winter season they will be opening two new routes to Gran Canaria. Granada, the south Andalusian city, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, with two flights a week, starting from December 4; and Lyon, the capital city of France’s Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region will fly weekly from 4 November.

In addition to the Ginebra route from Switzerland, which began operating last summer, these new routes add to the winter schedule and, given the good reception shown by this emerging market for the island, the company has decided to increase their flights to Gran Canaria.
