Volotea gears up for major growth plans in 2020

Spanish low-cost airline Volotea will introduce five additional Airbus A319 next year making a total fleet of 38 aircraft.

The airline has said that the move to add five Airbus A319 aircraft comes at a time where it will phase out three Boeing 717 in 2020 accelerating the transition to become an Airbus fleet airline in 2022.

The airline’s other major plans in the year 2020 include adding three new bases in Naples, Lyon and Hamburg as well as launching 53 new routes.

Carlos Muñoz, founder and CEO of Volotea, commented: “We are both excited and confident about the growth we are experiencing in all the markets where we operate.

“At the back of a very competitive year, we are now growing in aircraft, routes, markets, team and improving the quality of our service, which goes to speak about the resilience of our strategy in serving mid and small European cities. Most importantly we are increasing the opportunities of our clients, by continuing to offer new possibilities for travel at very competitive fares with almost 350 routes in 2020.”
