Spanish low-cost airline Volotea is planning 14 scheduled flights to two Croatian airports this summer, reports Croatian Aviation.
Namely, Volotea will operate 14 seasonal routes from France, Italy, and Greece to two Croatian airports – Split and Dubrovnik, in the summer flight schedule, which starts in late March.
Although the airline planned more lines to Split and Dubrovnik, the start date has been postponed from season to season due to the pandemic. The three previously announced lines will not be in operation this year either. Moreover, the airline has removed them from its list of destinations, so it is to be assumed that they will not be launched in the near future.
Nevertheless, the summer program for Croatia looks significantly better compared to 2021 operations. There are several weekly rotations on most lines, but it should be noted that the company has confirmed that reductions (or increases) in the announced schedule are still possible, and this will depend solely on the pandemic that directly affects passenger demand.
Volotea plans to travel to Dubrovnik from:
Lyon, from 16.04., 2 times a week, Tuesdays and Saturdays,
Nantes, from 09.04., 3 times a week, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays,
Bordeaux, from 16.04., 2 times a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays,
Toulouse, from 23.04., 2 times a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays,
Marseille, from 09.04., 2 times a week, Tuesdays and Saturdays,
Bari, from 06.07., once a week, Wednesday,
Athens, from 29.05., 2 times a week, Wednesdays and Sundays.
Volotea plans to travel to Split from:
Venice, from 27.05., 2 times a week, Tuesdays and Fridays,
Lyon, from 17.04., 2 times a week, Wednesdays and Sundays,
Nice, from 13.04., once a week, Wednesday,
Marseille, from 10.04., 2 times a week, Wednesdays and Sundays,
Toulouse, from 17.04., 2 times a week, Wednesdays and Sundays,
Bordeaux, from 17.04., once a week, Wednesdays,
Nantes, from 10.04., 2 times a week, Wednesdays and Sundays.
Volotea is one of the few airlines that flies from a number of French cities to Croatia during the summer season. Air France and Croatia Airlines, as well as many low-cost airlines, connect Croatian airports and several airports serving Paris, but Volotea offers the possibility of direct travel between Split and six French cities, which is certainly important in terms of tourism.
On all 14 routes to Croatia in the upcoming summer flight schedule, Volotea plans to use its A319 and A320 aircraft with a capacity of 150 and 180 seats in the passenger cabin, respectively.
