About Volotea

Volotea is a Spanish low cost airline headquartered in Barcelona. 


Volotea flies to many destinations including Ajaccio, Alghero, Alicante, Ancona, Toulon, Toulouse, Tel Aviv, Brest, Bordeaux, Biarritz, Corfu, Faro, Genoa, Caen, Cagliari, Kos, Ibiza, Genoa, Lille, Majorca, Malaga, Malta, Menorca, Munich, Nantes and Naples. Volotea is headquartered in Barcelona, Spain. 


Volotea was established by Alaeo, which was created by former Vueling founders Munoz and Ros. In February 2012, Volotea signed a long term deal with Boeing for an undisclosed number of Boeing 717 aircraft. In November 2015, Volotea announced to phase out their 717 fleet over the next few years and replace it with Airbus A320 family. Volotea's fleet consists of nineteen Boeing 717 aircraft and four Airbus A319s. 


The Boeing 717 is equipped with Rolls-Royce engines and is renowned for its comfort and reliability. It's an extremely reliable 125-seat aircraft and offers a high level of comfort due to its limited five seats per row.


Volotea will count on 28 aircraft in 2017: 18 Boeing 717 (with a configuration of 125 seats) and 10 Airbus A319 (with 150 seats).

Since its creation in April 2012, Volotea has carried more than ten million passengers across Europe and expects to transport 4.3 million in 2017.


In 2017 Volotea operates 243 routes among 79 medium and small-sized cities in 16 countries: France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Greece, Croatia, The Czech Republic, Israel, Albania, Moldavia, Portugal, Malta, UK, Austria, Ireland and Luxembourg.

It is a year in which we will continue growing all across our network, offering non-stop connections to mid and small-sized European cities, widening our clients’ travel choice at convenient fares”, Carlos Munoz, Volotea’s Founder and CEO stated. “To celebrate this big event, achieved thanks to all our loyal customers across Europe, an exciting challenge has been launch in all of our bases. Awarded winners will enjoy fifteen free flights, so they will be able to fly for free for a year. We encourage everybody to take part”.


This isn't the only competition Volotea are running.

Volotea renews IATA's IOSA Registration
Volotea has renews the IOSA registration, given by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) until 2019. The IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) programme is an internationally recognised and accepted evalutaion designed to assess the oeprational management and control systems of an airline.

Created in 2001, the IOSA programme checks among other areas flight control, cargo operations and operations in the passenger cabin. IOSA has become a global standard, recognized beyond the scope of IATA. The total accident rate for IOSA carriers between 2011 and 2015 was 3.3 times lower than the rate for non-IOSA airlines.

Volotea renews this registration in its sixth year of operations, and after launching its ninth European base in Genoa. In 2017, Volotea operates 28 aircraft Boeing 717 and Airbus 319 with 243 routes among 79 European cities in 17 countries and expects to carry 4.3 million passengers.

Volotea will count on nine bases in 2017: Venice, Nantes, Bordeaux, Palermo, Strasbourg, Asturias, Verona, Toulouse and Genoa, which has been launched in April.

Volotea expects to become a 100% Airbus operator in the next few years. This strategic decision allows the company to increase its passenger capacity by 20%, from 125 seats to 150 seats on its new planes. Both models are recognized for their comfort and reliability, with Volotea offering reclining seats 5% wider than the average in airlines.

The range of the A319 allows Volotea to operate routes with a longer distance and penetrate new markets. While the Boeing 717 has a range of 2,500km, the Airbus A319 reaches 3,500km.

4 Volotea’s Airbus A319 are based in Nantes, where one of the six new Airbus A319s will also be placed. The other five will be based in Bordeaux and Toulouse. The new Airbus A319 of the 2017 line will be received progressively during the first semester of this year.
