“We are very proud to be the first airline supporting the most important cultural institution in Marseilles such as Le Mucem. In Volotea we consider arts and culture as bases for the development of society and Mediterranean Sea is entangled in our core network.
So, Marseilles and Le Mucem are perfect partners for Volotea. Additionally, we are delighted that our collaboration starts with the exhibition "Voyage Voyages", which shows the influence of trips on many artists. It perfectly fits with Volotea as for us travel is a pleasant experience. With this partnership for the next three years, we proudly support and promote culture in Marseilles as a main reason to visit.“
