Volotea, a Spanish short and medium haul airline linking small and medium sized cities, has landed at Athens International Airport (AIA) and is offering over 60,000 airline seats for 2015.
According to an announcement, Volotea will operate five new routes to and from Athens as of April 2015. This is the first year Volotea will fly to and from the Greek capital.
Volotea will launch four weekly flights from Athens to Santorini from 29 May 2015 until September. Next year the airline will also link Athens to Venice (three weekly flights from 3 April to October), Bari (two weekly flights weekly from 1 June to September), Palermo (two flights weekly from 26 June to September), and Pisa/Tuscany (two weekly flights from 29 May to September).

“Greece is expected to be the country in which we will grow the most in 2015, with an increase of approximately 60 percent of our flights compared to last year,” the CEO and founder of Volotea, Carlos Muñoz, said.
