First Volotea Flight Lands at Rijeka Airport from Marseille, France

Lauren Simmonds

As Novac writes on the 6th of June, 2019, on Wednesday the 5th of June, 2019, at 20:10 a Volotea flight (V72616) arrived in Rijeka directly from from Marseille, making it the very first Volotea airplane to land at Rijeka Airport.

The arrival of this flight to Rijeka Airport precedent for the entire Kvarner region, since this flight marked the first time in the last twenty years that a regular route has been established between not just Rijeka and the city of Marseille, but between Rijeka and any other French city, as they stated from Rijeka Airport.

Although a direct line between Paris and Rijeka was established last year, these regular flights represent a much greater potential as regardless of the quantity of tickets sold, will allow each individual to fly at a very low price to the second largest French city, as was reported by Rijeka Airport.

On June the 5th, the inauguration ceremony of another new airline at Rijeka Airport was held with the classic display of water and cutting ribbons, and passengers were welcomed with homemade cakes and a taste of the area’s local folklore, writes Novi list.

The new Volotea line will fly on the Rijeka-Marseille route once per week, on Wednesdays until October the 2nd, 2019, and traffic on this line will be powered by a Boeing 717 aircraft which can accommodate 125 passengers.

Volotea is a Spanish low-cost airline that connects over 83 cities throughout Europe, of middle and smaller sizes, with special emphasis placed on passenger quality and safety. Volotea’s main focus is destinations located on the European side of the Mediterranean coast, in both Western and Southern Europe.

With over 6.5 million passengers, Volotea saw an increase of 36 percent over the previous year in 2018, making it one of the fastest growing carriers in the whole of Europe.
