By Tuesday, 09 July 2024 11:38

Bari is Volotea's new operating base, its eighth airport in Italy and the twenty-first in Europe. 

A 37% increase in seats on sale

This will allow the Spanish airline to operate more than 1,260 flights, with 224,000 seats on sale (+37% compared to 2023) for a total of 18 destinations, nine of which are exclusive. There are eight new routes: Dubrovnik, Rhodes, Toulouse, Bilbao, Comiso, Split, Malaga and Preveza / Lefkada.

Bari is the 21st base in Volotea’s network  

"We have been present in Bari since the start of our activities in 2012, and the opening here of the eighth Italian operating base, the twenty-first at network level, is a further confirmation of our synergic link with this territory, – said Valeria Rebasti, Volotea's international market director. -Thanks to this important investment not only will we support the local economy through an increase in tourist flows passing through the airport, but we will also offer more opportunities for the local communities to travel to other European countries.”

“An increase in flights, and in induced activities”

Antonio Maria Vasile, president of Aeroporti di Puglia, said that the opening of Volotea's base represents “a great asset for our territory. In fact, it is not only the airport that will benefit, but also and above all the entire economy of the community where the airport is located. With not only an increase in flights, but also an increase in induced activities, to the benefit of Puglia. The opening of a base always represents a fundamental step in the life of an airport. It will promote competition and adaptability to changing market conditions in favour of consumers, allowing a wider range of destinations to be offered to passengers, while Aeroporti di Puglia will be able to expand its network.”

Volotea flies to 18 cities from Bari

There are 18 destinations connected with the new Bari base: nine in Greece (Athens, Corfu, Heraklion/Creta, Mykonos, Preveza/Lefkada, Rhodes, Santorini, Skiathos and Zante), threee in Italy (Comiso, Florence and Olbia), two in France (Lyon and Toulouse), two in Spain (Bilbao and Malaga) and two in Croatia (Dubrovnik and Split).
