Volareweb Mixes It Up

Posted in: Airlines


The last time we checked, Italian low-cost carrier Volareweb flew to seven destinations in Italy, plus Paris. So imagine our surprise when we took a glance at the Volareweb site the other day to discover the following new destinations: Alghero, Cagliari, Helsinki, Lodz, Maastricht Aachen, Manchester, Pescara, Porto, Rotterdam, and Wroclaw. Three new Italian destinations? Two in the Netherlands? Two in Poland? And, um, Helsinki? Very interesting.

All the airline’s new destinations are being served from Milan Malpensa. Volareweb is currently hawking €21.99 fares (including taxes and charges) on routes in and out of Milan. In the past, we’ve had a difficult time locating Volareweb’s lowest promotional fares, so imagine our pleasure when we found a €41.86 (yes, that’s under their listed lowest fare) for a Milan Malpensa-Maastricht Aachen roundtrip at the end of November.

Volareweb, we’re paying attention.
