Expats that live in Majorca will be able to visit home on the cheap once again as Spanish carrier Vuelling plans to launch the new Palma Majorca to Heathrow route that will begin next March, just in time for the 2013 summer travel season. The last time a direct flight on this route was offered was when bmi offered the flight in 2009. This will also allow those expats living in the UK to easily t to their Majorca homes and it will boost the local property market in Majorca.
In addition to the Majorca-Heathrow route, Vuelling is also launching other flights between the UK and Spain, including cheap flights between Gatwick and Barcelona and between Cardiff and Malaga. Chief executive of Vuelling, Alex Cruz, says that the Heathrow route will be welcome by the strong expat community and together with the new Gatwick-Barcelona flights coming in March, these will mark a fourth consecutive year of growth for the airline.
