Volotea continues expansion in Venice with seven new destinations

Celebrating the arrival of Volotea in Krakow were Paweł Galiak, Aviation Services Manager, Kraków Airport; Loredana Tramontano, Volotea’s International Business Development Manager; Jan Pamuła, CEO, Kraków Airport; and Urszula Podraza, Kraków Airport’s spokesperson, together with the crew of the maiden flight.

Alfons Claver, Volotea’s Communications Director, held a press conference in Santiago de Compostela prior to the arrival of the airline’s inaugural flight from Venice.

Champagne and a cake, which reflected long seamanship traditions Venice and Porto have in common, were offered by Porto Airport to celebrate the launch of Volotea’s first route to Portugal.

Celebrating Volotea’s first arrival in France together with the airline’s crew members were Bordeaux Airport’s Development Director Jean-Luc Poiroux; CEO Pascal Personne; Edo Friart, Volotea’s Country Manager France; and Catherine Caraglio, Bordeaux Airport’s Routes Development Manager.

  • Last week, Volotea, the brainchild of the original founders of Vueling Carlos Muñoz and Lázaro Ros, further expanded its base in Venice (VCE) with seven new destinations. Alicante (ALC), Malaga (AGP), Kraków (KRK), Porto (OPO) and Santiago de Compostela (SCQ) are offered with twice-weekly frequencies from the launch. However, Alicante, Malaga and Porto will see frequencies increase to three, as additional flights are added in late June. Bordeaux (BOD) and Bilbao (BIO) are served three times weekly from the start. All routes are operated with the airline’s fleet of 125-seat 717s and none face any competition.
