Published on

Volotea is continuing to develop its range of services from Bordeaux Airport, with two new routes to Rome Fiumicino and Naples.

Bordeaux, 5 July 2023 - Volotea is pursuing its expansion in Bordeaux, offering customers new options for travelling to Italy. With a new service to Rome Fiumicino and a reopened line to Naples (previously operated from 2014-2019), Bordeaux residents now have more options to enjoy the “dolce vita” in Italy for a long weekend.

Volotea, the airline for the regional capitals of Europe, has been flying to and from Bordeaux since it started to operate in 2012. It is now offering two new destinations:

  • The Italian capital Rome, renowned internationally for its art, architecture and culture, will be connected every Thursday and Sunday starting from 9 November, with 13,000 seats on offer.
  • Naples, one of the oldest cities in Europe, famous for its exceptional historic and religious heritage, will be accessible to travellers from 20 December 2023. Volotea will be offering over 2,000 tickets to Bordeaux residents, who will be able to fly there every Wednesday and Sunday.

These routes are available on the Volotea website and reinforce the airline’s network, which now serves 28 destinations from Bordeaux, including five in Italy. With these new additions, Volotea - which transported over 4 million passengers from Bordeaux Airport between 2012 and May 2023 - is giving a significant boost to the connections available in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region.

“We are very pleased to announce the opening of these direct connections from Bordeaux Airport to Italy, where we are offering five destinations this year. With these new lines to Rome and Naples, there will be over 760,000 seats on offer for 2023, which represents significant growth compared to 2019. By the end of the year, we will have transported over 4.7 million passengers from Bordeaux, a remarkable statistic which shows our commitment to the region and to the Airport, which has been by our side since we began operations in 2012,” said Gabriel Schmilovich, Chief Strategy Officer at Volotea.

“As a mobility stakeholder that serves our local region, this announcement shows that our model is successful by promoting the creation of direct connections, mainly in Europe. We are pleased that our work with Volotea is helping to boost the region’s links with Italy. The fact that flights are already being placed up for sale for lines that will start to operate at the end of the year means that passengers will be able to access the best possible prices in the current context, where they are more sensitive than ever to getting value for money.” says Simon Dreschel, Chairman of Bordeaux Airport’s Executive Board.
