OUR FIRST DECADE
IN THE SKIES
CONNECTING SMALL AND MEDIUM SIZED CITIES IN EUROPE
Our 10th anniversary aircraft, a forward looking symbol.
To mark the beginning of a new chapter in our history, a commemorative plane is taking off to the skies. The idea behind its new livery design is to symbolize of the next 10 years of Volotea in the aviation industry, using a metallic palette to reflect the future of flying and all the opportunities it presents for our airline. To provide the final touch to this special design, we have taken the opportunity to honour one of our Co-founders to name this aircraft “Lázaro Ros”.
This journey has only just begun, and we’re excited to have you on board. So get ready and fasten your seatbelts for the next 10 years of Volotea.
TOWARDS THE NEXT 10 YEARS OF VOLOTEA.
On April 5th of 2012, the first Volotea flight took off, starting an incredible journey which has taken us to great heights. We are enormously proud of all that we have achieved until today.
Over the next ten years, we wish to keep connecting more cities, with a greener aviation, bringing more people together and taking them to great holiday destinations, at fair prices.
That’s our reason to exist. So keep looking up… this is just the beginning!

All our Airbus fleet have an on-board entertainment service, with a wide range of movies, series, TV shows, newspapers, magazines, music and content for the little ones. In addition, they have LED lights that represent a qualitative improvement for our passengers as well as energy savings and maintenance costs.
Unlike other companies, we have ample and reclining seats, arranged in rows 5% wider than the average of European companies, which allows our passengers to enjoy the flight in a more comfortable and relaxed way.

VOLOTERRA, OUR SUSTAINABILITY PROGRAM
Since we started flying, we have launched 50 initiatives to reduce the fuel consumption of our aircraft, achieving a reduction of more than 41% of our emissions per passenger kilometre flown.
While working on developing emission-free alternative-technologies, at present we’ve committed to offsetting 25% of our total CO2 emissions in 2025. Since 2022, we have started introducing Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) in our aircraft.
We collaborate with manufacturers and the industry so that these fuels can be further developed and generalized as soon as possible. Discover all our actions and how we contribute to cleaner travel here.
1600 employees are already part of the Volotea family. We're called Voloteans!
