Volotea starts the year by adding three Airbus A320s to its fleet in response to the increase in capacity and the new routes announced for this year.

With these additions, the company will now have a total of 44 aircraft, consisting of 20 Airbus A319 aircraft and 24 A320 aircraft.

Stephen Rapp, Chief Financial Officer of Volotea, says, “We are very proud to continue our growth in alignment with the expansion plans we set for this year and to do so hand-in-hand with Airbus as a valued partner.

“Last year alone, Volotea transported over 10 million passengers on approximately 70,000 flights, with an average occupancy rate of 92% for our scheduled flights.

“With a revenue of around €700 million and historic financial margins for a company with just over ten years of existence, the forecast for this year is to continue growing and increase our capacity by 15%.

“The addition of these new aircraft will prepare us for the demand of the summer season, traditionally the busiest time for the company.

“In addition, the more modern and efficient Airbus A320 will help us in our ongoing efforts to improve our competitiveness and achieve our emissions reduction targets, while continuing to offer our customers the best service.”
