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.

Since Volotea started operating in Athens in 2015, Volotea has carried over 200,000 passengers, increasing its number of customers year-on-year. In 2017, the airline has carried 108,000 passengers from Athens, up by 78% in comparison to the previous year and achieving an average 88% seat load.

TAP Air Portugal, Volotea link up on European services
TAP Air Portugal and Spain-based LCC Volotea may expand their partnership after agreeing to a codeshare arrangement to strengthen services between three European nations.
It is the first codeshare that Volotea, which specializes in connecting secondary and tertiary European cities, has entered into.
The agreement has come into force in the past few days and allows both airlines to cooperate through Volotea’s direct flights to the southern Portuguese leisure destination of Faro from France and Italy. Faro has become a year-round destination, largely because of the proliferation of golf courses in its locality.
The codeshare will allow TAP to place its TP code on all Volotea-operated routes from Faro to
Nantes, Bordeaux and Marseille (France), as well as to Verona (Italy)
“This first codeshare agreement in Volotea’s history … will clearly benefit consumers to connect important French and Italian cities with the dynamic Portuguese market,” Volotea’s founder and CEO Carlos Muñoz said. “Furthermore, it will allow Volotea to grow into a larger geography and longer seasonality and in partnership with TAP Portugal, one of Europe’s strongest airlines.
“This new codeshare aims to provide TAP customers with more service options enhancing flight connectivity possibilities from Portugal to France and Italy,” TAP Air Portugal CEO Antonoaldo Neves said.
Under the agreement, Volotea expects to enhance its distribution in Portugal.
As part of its continuing expansion, Volotea has also opened two new direct routes to Madeira, a Portuguese island territory in the Atlantic, from Marseille and Bordeaux.
