Air Vallée is an Italian airline based in Genoa (according to information from wikipedia - their website is not specified). It operates charter flights and regular flights to Italy, but also to Tirana. It has a fleet of 2 Fokker 50 aircraft (50 seats in the 2-2 economy configuration).
Given that this company does not have an immaculate past, I have great doubts about this route. The thought takes me to Episode 2012, when Air Vallée had announced an ambitious expansion plan in Romania, with flights from Iasi and Bucharest to several destinations in Italy and even France, but all routes were canceled. Following an aggressive marketing campaign, they managed to sell a significant number of tickets, but the passengers could not enjoy them nor were they compensated. Maybe they came back to a more solid business plan and they won't repeat the mistake. We are also waiting for a response from the Arad airport authorities.
