New routes this summer

Friday, 25 March, 2016

Featuring 14 new destinations from the end of March, Toulouse-Blagnac Airport has launched an ambitious spring-summer programme, with many new horizons to discover.

New Volotea flights

Volotea links regional capitals throughout Europe and will be flying twice weekly to four new destinations: Prague, Malaga, Split and Brest. The low-cost airline will also continue to operate flights to Strasbourg this winter, up to five times a week. Volotea uses a fleet of 125-seat Boeing 717s and 148-seat Airbus A319s.

New easyJet flights

easyJet is also launching new routes to Milan-Malpensa (4 flights per week) and to Berlin (3 flights per week), as well as beach destinations Faro, in the south of Portugal (3 flights per week), Mahón, on the island of Minorca, Olbia in Sardinia and Pula and Dubrovnik in Croatia. Finally, there will be an additional daily flight to Paris-Orly at 7:20 a.m., for a total of 7 flights per day. That is a lot of destinations served at least twice a week! These flights use the Airbus A319 (156 seats).
