Vueling Airlines is a global Spanish airline and the biggest airline in Spain by fleet size and destination numbers. It is a popular airline for foreigners traveling to and from Spain.
Luggage should arrive at the same time as the passengers but when unforeseen events can lead to your baggage getting lost or delayed. Vueling Airline does encounter lost baggage claims regularly and have policies in place to deal with such claims.
If you do not see your luggage at the baggage collection area, your first move should be to visit the Lost and Found Office in the airport. At the Lost and Found Office, you will be provided with a Property Irregularity Report (P.I.R.).
The P.I.R is a reference number with a code that helps you locate your currently lost luggage and lost luggage in the future. The P.I.R makes it easier for you to locate your luggage by reporting the incident, providing a detailed description of your luggage and tracing the luggage.
Once a P.I.R has been made, Vueling Airlines will start a baggage search in all Spanish airports. Most luggage is recovered and delivered within 3 days of opening the P.I.R.
You can use the code associated with the P.I.R to trace your bag using the World Tracer System. You can use the Vueling website to trace your bag and find information about where it is currently located.
Once the luggage is located, the airline will notify you by either calling you or sending you a text. The luggage will then be sent to the address specified in the P.I.R.
There is a form on Vueling's website where you can request a refund for basic necessities you had to acquire during the time your luggage was being traced. You will have to prove that those necessities were in your bag to receive the refund.
If your baggage has still not been traced after 5 days, you should fill out a form on Vuelings website providing more information about the luggage that will aid its recovery.
If your luggage has been lost for over 21 days, you should request Vueling Airlines for compensation of the luggage's contents. You will have to provide the airline with original documents for you to receive compensation.
