Volotea’s network at Venice Marco Polo is mainly domestic. It currently produces about 6,400 seats on 51 weekly frequencies to/from the airport, of which 5,125 seats are on 41 domestic flights. Systemwide, the LCC holds only a near 4% share of weekly seat capacity at the airport. Volotea is the sole operator on six of the 10 routes it now operates from Venice Marco Polo, according to schedules in Innovata for the week of 12-Nov-2012 to 18-Nov-2012. This includes the route to Nantes, which it commenced on 28-Oct-2012 and is served with two flights per week, but this monopoly is only temporary.
