Volotea has forecast a 90% occupation for their Murcia to Asturias route this summer.
Volotea was founded by a Murcian businessman Carlos Muñoz and he states that more than half of the tickets for flights starting in May from Corvera have already been sold.
The route starts operating at the end of May and will be a twice weekly flight on a Monday and Thursday. The first domestic route from Corvera airport was launched on sale in November 2018 and prices started from a low 9 euros. To begin 8,500 seats were on sale and since then prices have increased to around 60 euros.
Demand for the flight is expected to continue over the coming weeks with many last minute sales anticipated.
It is widely expected that should demand continue for domestic flights, the range of destinations from Corvera airport will further increase.
