On Thursday (March 31, 2022), Volotea announced the launch of new service between Athens and Palermo from June 10, 2022. The route will be operated twice weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays. With the addition of Palermo, the carrier will now serve 15 destinations from Athens, including four new previously announced routes to Bilbao, Bordeaux, Nantes and Turin. Volotea’s Athens network also includes flights to Lyon, Marseille, Strasbourg, Bari, Venice, Verona, Crete, Mykonos, Santorini and Dubrovnik. For summer 2022, Volotea will operate over 3,600 flights from Athens Airport, compared to 1,162 during summer 2021. Since launching operations in Athens in 2015, the carrier has transported over one million passengers to and from Athens.

In Thursday’s announcement, Volotea’s Country Manager – Italy & Southeastern Europe, Valeria Rebasti, said,

“Announcing the new Athens-Palermo connection fills us with pride and satisfaction. Only a few weeks ago, in fact, we launched in Athens a new route to Italy, to Turin, and since the beginning of the year, other two new routes to France (Bordeaux and Nantes) and Spain (Bilbao) as proof of our commitment to support the recovery of the tourism sector, both incoming and outgoing. This new route will further expand the travel options of Greek passengers, allowing them to comfortably reach Sicily.”
