Starting 16 September, Turin Airport became Volotea’s 20th destination in Italy, being serviced by the carrier’s 717s to Palermo (thrice-weekly) and Naples (four times weekly).
- Volotea began two more domestic services within Italy on 16 September with its 125-seat 717s, commencing operations between both Palermo (PMO) and Naples (NAP), and Turin (TRN). Flights from Palermo to the northern Italian city will be flown thrice weekly (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) against Alitalia’s daily service. Competition will be stiffer on the four times weekly Naples to Turin city pair, with Alitalia offering 23 weekly flights and Meridiana 12 weekly flights. While these will be the only two routes currently flown by the airline to the Italian ‘motor city’ of Turin, they will be the 14th route from Palermo in the north-west of Sicily, and the fourth from Naples.
