The Volotea company is anything but a beginner. After Bastia, Figari, Ajaccio, Toulouse and Marseille, it is now the turn of Palma de Mallorca to be served from Caen Carpiquet airport.
A first international connection
At 1 hour 50 from the city of Caen, the largest of the Balearic Islands will dazzle you for a moderate price. This new link opened by the Volotea company attests to the dynamism of the Normandy region and reinforces its attractiveness: "More and more, customers are looking for local departures". This is an international first for the city for 2019 which will see a 33% increase in its flight offer from Caen.
An attractive offer
The city of Caen with its student enthusiasm knows how to adapt to new consumers who are looking for inexpensive flights to couple with Airbnb accommodations. Every Wednesday, an Airbus A 319 will offer 156 seats to the Spanish island. The company announces average one-way prices at 50 to 80 euros, with a loss-leader discounts from 5 euros depending on the booking date. Be careful, the last seats can shoot up to 250 euros. It will therefore be necessary to anticipate and get up early to travel at low cost!
Fed up with tripe?
The city of Caen has great appeal, surrounded by its medieval walls and a halo of the reign of William the Conqueror. The city with a hundred steeples also knows how to go green with its 500 hectares of green spaces and its bird hill. Not to mention its museums and Memorial, one of the largest spaces dedicated to the Second World War. But the month of April brings on the desire to be elsewhere, enjoying lightness and heat.
Head for tapas!
The capital Palma de Mallorca is a crowded tourist spot in July and August. But it is in the heart of the island and on the west coast that you will discover charming ports set on crystal clear waters, surrounded by olive groves. The month of April is a good time to enjoy it hassle-free, with its gentle climate, its light as vitamin-filled as a citrus fruit and its tourism at a moderate ebb and flow. And if you miss the boat in spring, stay this summer in Caen when Normandy will be the focus of the world for the celebration of the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Then fly out in the late season, the weather there is good until November!
