Volotea, a budget airline headquartered in Barcelona, Spain, began its flight operations in 2012. The airline’s mission is to operate short to medium-haul flights across Europe, focusing on connecting smaller cities and regional destinations overlooked by larger carriers.

The airline’s primary hub is at Barcelona–El Prat Airport, and it has additional significant bases in Venice, Nantes, Bordeaux, and Palermo, among others. It operates a fleet comprising around 40 Airbus A319 and A320 family aircraft, enabling it to serve approximately 100 destinations across various European countries, including Greece, Italy, France, Spain, and Germany.

What sets Volotea apart is its commitment to linking secondary, often less accessible cities, which generally lack direct flights to major hubs. Its low-cost model offers competitive base fares, with additional services such as seat selection available for an extra charge.

In 2019, Volotea transported over 8 million passengers. Private investors from Spain and France hold its ownership. Despite challenging market conditions, the airline has managed to maintain steady growth and keep its operational costs in check. Notably, it was among the few European airlines that managed to avert losses during the pandemic.

Distinctive features of Volotea include its single-class, all-economy seating arrangement, its strategic focus on smaller airports, and an onboard catering service managed in-house.
