The airline increased its capacity by 27 percent compared to 2017, to offer 145,000 seats from Nice as well as two new destinations. In 2017, the fill rate of Volotea in Nice was 84 percent. Present in Nice since 2015, Volotea transported more than 160,000 passengers from this airport, where the airline adds new destinations every year.
