We are an airline with headquarters in Barcelona. We started out in 2012 with the aim of turning normal into reality: connecting small and medium sized European cities with non-stop direct flights at very competitive prices.
Flying with us offers people who live in these cities the same options as those in major capitals; they can reach new destinations, previously unavailable from their airports, adding to the range of routes and expanding the market.
The founders of Volotea are Carlos Muñoz and Lázaro Ros (CEO and Managing Director respectively). They were the driving forces behind the very first Volotea flight, which took off on 5 April, 2012. Since then, we have carried over 25 million passengers thanks to a team of top professionals and a philosophy based on offering a positive travel experience at competitive prices.
We are the fastest growing independent European airline created this decade and we now operate with a total of 346 short-haul routes, connecting over 90 cities in 14 countries.
We currently operate from sixteen bases in France, Italy, Spain, Greece and Germany: Venice, Nantes, Bordeaux, Palermo, Strasbourg, Asturias, Verona, Toulouse, Genoa, Bilbao, Marseille, Athens, Cagliari and Hamburg. Two new bases will be opening in Lyon and Naples in 2020.
