Last March, Volotea launched its second French base at Mérignac airport. The company already has nine permanent or seasonal flights and will be opening three more by this dummer (Munich, Olbia, Florence).
“One of our ambitions is to develop connections which are not yet available. In May, we will be opening a new line to Munich, as there weren’t any direct flights to Germany from Bordeaux”, explains Edo Friart, Development Director in France.
“Mérignac Airport has always been particularly important to Volotéa. We are the first and only low-cost company to use it as a base. Along with Nantes, it is the keystone of our deployment on the French market. Furthermore, Bordeaux’s strong reputation abroad allows for a balanced development of traffic (departure and stop-off point) which is fundamental to our activity”.
Simplifying air transport and offering a local service at low prices are Volotea’s two main developing drives. Volotea would also like to eventually target the business market by increasing the number of flights and air traffic.
The fleet should increase from 9 to 14 planes this summer.
