With Greg Brenneman, one-time President and COO of Continental Airlines as Chairman, Volotea has been created as a European Barcelona-based low-cost airline. Volotea has already taken delivery of a 125-seat Boeing 117 twin jet (MD80/MD90 series) and plans to be in operation by the time of the Easter holidays.
Under a multi-year arrangement Boeing Capital Corporation will begin additional deliveries in March. The number of aircraft involved in the deal was not disclosed. In a comprehensive customer solution, Boeing Commercial Aviation Services will provide operational manuals and its Maintenance Performance Toolbox product.
"Volotea's goal is to forge new and efficient air connections between Europe's small and mid-sized cities currently not well served by direct flights. We see the 717’s capabilities as the best solution for us in filling this need, and we see the partnership with Boeing as the right one for our success," said Carlos Munoz, Volotea's founder and CEO. www.volotea.com
