Volotea, the airline of mid and small-sized European cities, has reached its 20 million passenger carried since its operations started in 2012. The airline has celebrated this event in Theatre of Bordeaux National Opera, a cultural institution sponsored by Volotea.
Volotea has reached today its 20 million passengers carried since 2012. The passenger, Laurent Lannou, was flying from Bordeaux to Majorca and was awarded with a year-long free flights prize to any destination from Bordeaux.
The airline reaches this mark after carrying more than three and a half million passengers between last June and September, with an average 95% load factor.
Volotea has carried 20 million passengers and will operate more than 44,000 flights this year. The airline has more than 30 aircraft on its fleet and operates a total of 293 routes in 2018 connecting 78 European cities in 13 countries, including: France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Greece, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Albania, Portugal, Malta, Austria, Ireland and Luxembourg. Volotea grows profitably since 2014 and has employed more than 1,000 people this year.
“We are very proud to reach 20 million passengers carried, as it is a challenge that many airlines cannot achieve and it represents the biggest growth among any independent European carrier incorporated in the last decade. Volotea operates in 13 European countries and will announce shortly more news on our 2019 operations to keep on connecting mid and small-size European cities”, has stated Carlos Muñoz, Volotea’s Founder and CEO.
