Volotea is gearing up to include a new international connection from Rome Fiumicino. It has announced that from 28th May, it will be possible to fly to Strasbourg from the Eternal City. The new route, operated exclusively by Volotea, will have two flights per week (every Monday and Friday) and more than 20,000 seats will be available. This new connection to France takes the airline’s destinations from Rome to five in total.
The route launch further reduces the distance between Rome and France – the carrier already operates a route to Nantes from the Italian capital. By flying with Volotea, passengers from Lazio can easily travel to North-Eastern France, booking a short break to discover Strasbourg, with its network of canals, timber-framed houses, and vibrant cultural atmosphere. The flight also offers French citizens from North-Eastern France the opportunity to organise a break in the Eternal City and to lose themselves in its rich history, taking in churches, museums, and ancient monuments. Rome’s irresistible culinary experience, with its wide range of wines and gastronomic delights, will also seduce visitors.
The announcement of the new Rome Fiumicino-Strasbourg flight reconfirms the airline’s commitment to providing an increasingly wide range of destinations to Italian passengers. Since it launched activities at the Rome-based airport, just a few months ago, Volotea has hit the runway with an offer encompassing five destinations. In addition to Strasbourg, passengers can also take flights with the airline to Nantes, Cagliari, Alghero, and Olbia. Since October 2021, the airline has transported more than 200,000 passengers on more than 1580 flights from Rome Fiumicino, with a comprehensive offer of more than 280,000 seats.
“We are excited to announce the launch of a new exclusive international route from Rome Fiumicino. The new connection from and to Strasbourg will start from 28th May and will strengthen the Rome-France axis,” commented Valeria Rebasti, Country Manager Italy & Southeastern Europe for Volotea. Roman passengers will have many comfortable options available, to set off on their discovery of Alsace, an evocative region, which we are sure will capture the hearts of a wide range of tourists. Finally, thanks to this new route, we will increase the traffic of foreign tourists who want to visit the wonders of Italy. We hope our flights will contribute to strengthening the tourism sector, which is a key economic driver for our country,” she continued.
