Volotea have forecast a 90% occupation for their Murcia to Asturias route this summer.
Volotea were founded by Murcian businessman Carlos Muñoz, who says 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-Murcia Airport was launched for sale in November 2018 and prices started from a low nine euros. To begin with 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-Murcia Airport will further increase.
