Valeria Rebasti, International Market Director of Volotea had this to say on the new opening in Bari, Italy:

“The opening of the summer base in Bari once again confirms Volotea’s growth in Italy”.

“This important milestone and the connections announced today allow us to consolidate the area’s connectivity, with a total of 18 destinations to 5 different countries, including Croatia and Spain, which are brand new for our 2024 summer in Bari.”

“In this way, we will shorten the distances between Puglia, one of the most desired Italian destinations, and the rest of Europe even more.”

“But that’s not all; the opening of this new base allows us to further strengthen our presence locally, supporting the economy through increased tourist flows.”

“Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank Aeroporti di Puglia for their valuable support in achieving this important new milestone for Volotea.”

All eyes will be on how the new base in Bari, Italy performs when it opens up in July 2024.
