It is understood that Volotea will base one Airbus A320 aircraft in Brest from April 2024, which will create 30 new jobs directly and support up to 200 indirectly.

Because of this new base opening, it means that the carrier will launch a historic offer of nearly 400,000 seats for flights to and from Brest, which is an increase of 1,226% compared to 2013.

Routes such as Athens, Barcelona, Faro and Palermo will also be added to the French airport’s offering as a result of this announcement.

Carlos Munoz, the CEO & Founder of Volotea said the following on this new base opening:

“We are very pleased to strengthen our local presence in Brest through the opening of our ninth base in France and our 20th in Europe since we began operations in 2012.”

“This development demonstrates our commitment to the Brittany region, marks a historic milestone for our company in France and is very symbolic as it coincides with the celebration of our 10-year presence in Brest.”

“This opening reflects the very essence of Volotea: improving connectivity, attraction, and dynamism of the regions in which we operate, through a positive economic and social impact.”

“We are proud that our 2024 offer will see us reach our maximum capacity and will be enriched by 13 new routes next year, the creation of local jobs and the opening of new markets for tourism in Brittany”.

All eyes will be on how this new base opening goes, as well as whether there is scope to expand operations from Brest going into the future.
