Volotea opened its sixth Italian base on July 3, in Naples.
Following last October’s announcement, the company has now based two Airbus A319s at the Campanian airport. The move will enable the airline to consolidate its presence in time for the summer season by focusing mainly on domestic flights, with several routes to Greece also running. Before becoming a Volotea base, Naples was already the first airport in Italy, and second in the Volotea network, in volume of available seats. Passengers will be able to travel from Naples to 17 destinations – 9 in Italy and 8 abroad.
With the opening of the new Naples base, Volotea will consolidate its national services departing from the airport, offering passengers more frequent flights to Catania (11 flights per week), Genoa (5 flights per week), Turin (2 flights per week), Trieste (2 flights per week this summer and up to 6 in September), Verona (2 flights per week this summer and up to 6 in September) and Olbia (7 flights per week). For summer 2020, the network of domestic destinations passengers can fly to from Naples will also include Alghero (new for 2020, with 2 flights per week), Cagliari (6 flights per week) and Palermo (2 daily flights). Fans of Greek holidays will be able to travel from Naples to Mykonos (up to 5 flights per week), Santorini (4 flights per week), Heraklion, Zante and Skiathos (3 flights per week for the three destinations), Rodi (2 flights per week), Cephalonia and Preveza–Lefkada (one flight per week).
The two Airbus A319 aircraft will be allocated to Naples.
Naples is the latest addition to the airline’s network of Italian bases, which already included Venice, Verona, Palermo, Genoa and Cagliari.
For 2020, Volotea is adding six aircraft Airbus 319s and 62 new routes to offer a line-up of 354 short-haul city-pairs among 96 medium and small-sized airports in 15 countries at very competitive prices.
