Volotea to connect Dubrovnik for 2016



More 2016 connectivity for Croatia’s Pearl of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik.

With more than a million passengers in a busy 2015 season, Dubrovnik Airport seems set for even more impressive numbers in 2016, with low-cost Spanish carrier Volotea the latest airline to announce a new route into the Dalmatian tourist hotspot, reports Aerocroatia on September 30, 2015.

Volotea will connect two of the top destinations on the Adriatic – Dubrovnik and Venice with a twice-weekly service for the 2016 season, with flights commencing on May 28, 2016.

Volotea is one of the Europe’s youngest airlines and was founded in 2012 in Barcelona and currently connects around 50 European destinations. Volotea will offer competitive rates to Venice with prices starting at around 80 Euros for a return flight. Venice, which is a twin city of Dubrovnik, is already connected by the Croatian national airline, Croatia Airlines. Volotea will connect Dubrovnik to Venice twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays and plan to operate the line until the 3rd of September 2016. The Spanish airline also flies directly from Dubrovnik to Bordeaux.
