On Wednesday (May 25, 2022), Vueling announced the launch of a new intermodal agreement with Deutsche Bahn, Germany’s leading railway company and the second largest transport company in the world after Deutsche Post/DHL. By using Vueling Global, the virtual interline platform powered by Dohop, customers can now conveniently combine their flight with onward rail connections across Germany on a single booking. From Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER), Vueling customers will now enjoy seamless rail connections to cities such as Dresden, Hannover, Leipzig, Rostock and Wolfsburg. With the new intermodal service, Vueling extends the catchment area of BER to the surrounding cities and destinations across Europe, while improving the sustainability of the entire travel chain.


In Wednesday’s announcment, Vueling’s Distribution Strategy and Alliances Manager, Jesús Monzo, said,


“This is Vueling's first intermodal agreement and opens the door to an increasingly strong trend in the industry to connect different types of transport and mobility, thus increasing the offer and options for the passenger. In addition, we must highlight the environmental factor and the relevance that trains are acquiring in this as a means of sustainable mobility.”


Further commenting on the new intermodal agreement, Dohop’s CEO, David Gunnarsson, added,


“Our platform allows Vueling and Deutsche Bahn to provide passengers with an enhanced travel experience and a one-stop-shop for booking their combined journey. Customers will have the opportunity to experience Vueling’s signature flight experience while also adding their onward journey by rail in one booking. Linking flight and train travel seamlessly through intermodal transfer options is a further step towards improved and more sustainable travel.”
