The first flight of the new low cost airline, Volotea, will be departing from Malaga airport at half past seven this evening. The destination is the Italian city of Venice, a route that until now was not possible directly. The communication and Institutional relations manager, Alfons Claver, presented the company’s project at Malaga airport, from where they’ll be flying, as from June, to Asturias, Zaragoza and Bordeaux. “We are very happy with the response we have received in Malaga. Out of the one hundred tickets we have sold since the 2nd of March, six thousand of them were to fly from this airport. We are very satisfied”, he assured.
Malaga is the fifth destination in Spain in which they have started to operate, although the plan for this season is to fly from fifteen Spanish airports to 36 cities. The airline, with a vocation to connect medium European cities, contemplates to operate 76 connections in 53 cities of around ten European countries.
In Malaga’s case, it will be starting with two flights a week to Venice, that will be extended to three as from the 22nd of June. In that same month, all four direct routes will be operated from Malaga airport, of a total amount of seven scheduled in Andalusia.
