On May the 23rd , Vigo landed in London for a few hours to meet representatives from Spanish and British media for a breakfast at the Foreign Press Association.
British people love Vigo. Or so reveal the numbers: over 150,000 Britons visited the city last year. That is one of the reasons why Vueling has launched a new destination Vigo-London. A direct flight from Heathrow Airport, with a frequency of three flights a week, enables the discovery of Vigo as a unique and attractive holiday destination, a reference of quality tourism.
Mr. Abel Caballero, Major of Vigo, was there to talk about this new opportunity for the city what he said is one of the most beautiful hidden spots within Spain. He pointed out the wide range of activities to do in the city from the sunrise to sunset that go from gastronomy and folklore to modern culture, nature and trips to the Cies islands, as an example.
During the presentation, Abel Caballero was also joined by Ms. Marion Bauer on behalf of Vueling and Ms. Inma Gil, BBC Worldwide journalist who is a “viguesa” settled in London.

After Mr. Caballero’s speech, there was an open Q & A for journalists to find out more about the details of this new route and also about statistics on the number and kind of tourists visiting Vigo within the last years.
However, the highlight of the event was the introduction of the city itself through a video that left the attendees either open-mouthed or whispering about plan to go and visit the galician city. Luckily, and just in case you were not able to attend, we are now providing you with this short movie to enjoy the wonders of Vigo and its outskirts.
Now, with this new Vueling destination straight from Heathrow to Vigo, not only can you go and enjoy this Northern Spanish beautiful city, but also enjoy the amazing connections this route has within Europe.
