Volotea is strengthening its ties with Sardinia and opening its new summer base in Olbia. Starting from the 4th of June, the low-cost airline will base at the airport an Airbus A319 configured with 156 seats, offering even more comfortable travel schedules and new connections.
Volotea, which for the summer is aiming at strengthening its presence with a special focus on the domestic offer, strongly believes in the potential of the territory. With the launch of its new base, it wants to increase the volume of passengers travelling to Olbia, offering at the same time numerous travel opportunities to all those living in Sardinia and wishing to reach the Peninsula.
The airline has announced, for the summer, 2 new routes departing from Olbia to Catania and Cuneo, bringing to 19 the destinations that can be reached on board its aircrafts.
The carrier’s offer at local level, more than doubled compared to 2019, provides for more than 500 thousand seats on sale to fly to 19 destinations. The opening of the new base, particularly significant in this period of uncertainty due to the Covid-19 pandemic, is proof of Volotea’s great commitment to supporting the tourism sector at regional and national level.
“Sardinia – comments Carlos Muñoz, president and founder of Volotea – is once again one of the most important regions in our development strategies. With this investment we want to support the local economic fabric and contribute to the restart of tourism. Of course, all our flights will be in the name of maximum safety, thanks to a series of health protocols implemented to guarantee healthy travel for passengers and crew, and of the greatest flexibility: it is, in fact, possible to modify one’s own programmes up to a week before departure, without any cost for changing flights. With the opening of the new base, which joins the one in Cagliari inaugurated a couple of years ago, in addition to consolidating the volume of routes available for the warmer months, we will be able to meet the travel needs of a greater number of passengers”.
