Volotea ventures into 11 new sectors across eight different countries

O Kevin, O Kevin, where art thou new route to Kevin?? If you hadn’t guessed already it’s Verona, the setting for Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet – a destination which will be flown weekly by Volotea from 27 May. Cork Airport’s Head of Communications (and part-time Romeo) Kevin Cullinane is seen here practicing his lines for his next route launch with his Juliet, Alyson Vogl.

  • Volotea has launched seven new international routes and four domestic services from airports in Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Spain and the UK over the last week. The average sector length of the new city pairs is 1,135 kilometres, with the shortest airport pair being the 608-kilometre domestic operation from Bilbao (BIO) to Ibiza (IBZ), while the longest is the 1,489-kilometre international operation from Verona  (VRN) in Italy to Cork (ORK) in Ireland. The average weekly frequency of the 11 new routes is just 1.36, and all will be flown at no more than twice-weekly frequency. Only three of the 11 routes will see any direct competition for the airline.
