Inauguration of the line Marseille Constantine
The low-cost airline Volotea has inaugurated its new line between Marseille and Constantine, its third destination in Algeria after Algiers and Oran.
Since April 14, 2022, the Spanish specialist in low-cost flights has offered one flight per week between its base in Marseille-Provence and Constantine-Mohamed Boudiaf airport, operated by Airbus A319 with 156 seats or A320 with 180 seats. Departures are scheduled on Thursdays at 8:30 a.m. to arrive at 10:05 a.m., return flights leaving Algeria at 11:05 a.m. to land at 12:35 p.m. From May 1, rotations will be offered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, subject to approval by the Algerian authorities.
Volotea is in direct competition with Air Algérie on this route, on which more than 35,000 seats will be offered and which is added to that linking Marseille to Oran and that between Bordeaux and Algiers.
The line linking Marseille-Provence airport to Oran-Ahmed Ben Bella, launched on December 16 with two weekly rotations, has had great success, Volotea will offer it five times a week from next Monday (every day except Saturday and Sunday).
Marseille must also be connected to Sétif and Tlemcen, these two connections being currently displayed from April 30 and April 27 respectively. The flights to Annaba and Bejaïa, initially planned, no longer appear in its flight schedule.
As a reminder, Volotea Airlines is a Spanish low-cost airline founded in 2012. Its head office is located at Asturias Airport (Spain) and its main operational base is located at Nantes Airport (France). Volotea Airlines mainly connects regional capitals and small and medium-sized cities in Europe.
