The airline recently operated its first commercial flight from its base in Venice-Marco Polo to Palermo, on the 5th of April with 112 passengers on board.
During this month, Volotea has initiated its operations with 12 routes, all of them (except for one) from the Venice-Marco Polo airport.
To be exact, five Italian national routes from Venice to Brindisi, Cagliari, Palermo, and Reggio Calabria, as well as Palermo to Geneva and seven international routes to Alicante, Bilbao, Bordeaux, Krakow, Malaga airport, Porto and Santiago de Compostela.
The company hopes to increment its number of routes over the summer, up to a total of 76 routes, connecting 53 cities of 10 European countries.
The founder and managing director of Volotea, Carlos Muñoz, expressed his satisfaction with the company’s evolution and trusted in incrementing the number of flights and destinations during the summer season.
The company, whose corporative head office is located in Barcelona, will base nine Boeing 717 airplanes, with a capacity for 125 passengers, in three operative bases: four airplanes in the Venice-Marco Polo airport, three in Nantes, and another two in Ibiza. From each one of these airports there will be flights offered to national and international destinations.
