- Volotea opened its fifth French base this week in Marseille (MRS) and at the same time started four new routes from France’s second-biggest city. In addition, the LCC commenced its sixth service from Nice (NCE), this time to Split (SPU). The longest sector is the 1,930-kilometre route from Marseille to Heraklion (HER), whereas the shortest city pair is the French domestic route from the new base to Biarritz (BIQ), at 541 kilometres. The average sector length of all five services is 1,053 kilometres, while the average frequency is just 1.4 flights per week. Only two of the five airport pairs will see any direct competition.
