Passengers on the inaugural services from Strasbourg to Nice and Toulouse on 26 November were welcomed with a balloon arch, some first flight gifts and a cheery smile from the Volotea crew. Both routes will be flown on a four times weekly basis and will face competition from HOP!
- Volotea has started routes #4 and #5 from its Strasbourg (SXB) base this winter, adding the domestic points of Toulouse (TLS) and Nice (NCE) on 26 November, joining its other year-round services to Bordeaux, Marseille and Nantes. It should be noted that during the high-season summer month of August this year, the LCC’s network from Strasbourg boasted 11 routes, obviously including some peak-period services. Both routes will be flown on a four times weekly basis by the airline’s 125-seat 717 fleet and will face direct competition from HOP!, which offers a daily frequency to Nice and 13 times weekly to Toulouse.
