Today the low cost carrier Volotea together with Cagliari Airport have hosted a workshop dedicated to travel agents, DMCs and tour operators based in South Sardinia. Volotea is currently planning to increase its share market in Sardinia and looking carefully for successful opportunities to cooperate with new and motivated business partners from the Sardinian tourism industry.
Starting this week on May 3rd Germanwings will connect Cagliari and Dusseldorf with a direct flight. The new route will be operated on a weekly basis (Saturday) while the Stuttgart and Cologne/Bonn flights remain both twice a week (Thursday and Saturday).

The Irish low cost carrier has announced its plans for Winter '14-’15: Ryanair will operate 12 routes connecting Cagliari to major domestic and international destinations with 134 flights every week.

Tickets from 19,99 € are available on www.ryanair.com until midnight Monday, 21st April.
Cagliari Airport and Assaeroporti, the Italian Airport Association, are pleased to support the national campaign launched by AISM in order to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis. The Italian Association for Multiple Sclerosis will be engaged in a major fundraising event named ‘Gardenia 2014’ taking place in 3.000 Italian cities on 8th and 9th March. Multiple sclerosis affects women twice as often as men: raising money for MS research on Women’s Day means helping women and their families to fight back the disease in a more effective way.
