Good News: Binter Canarias launches flights to Madrid with €20 tickets

Binter, the Canary Islands' premier airline, announced yesterday (Friday) that they are all set to take to the skies to connect the Canary Islands with Madrid from February 1st next year. They will operate daily flights, offering four routes each from Tenerife Norte and Gran Canaria to the Spanish capital.

To celebrate this milestone, they're offering tickets for as low as €20 for Canarian residents, with all airport fees included, ensuring that this new connection is accessible to all.

The exciting news was shared in a press conference by Binter's President, Rodolfo Núñez, who declared, "We are stepping into the first division of the national aviation market."

From February, there will be two morning and two afternoon flights from both Tenerife Norte and Gran Canaria, meaning eight daily connections to Madrid. Passengers can also enjoy the convenience of carrying up to eight kilograms of hand luggage, and the flights will operate from Terminal 2 at Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport.

But that's not all; Binter's new route will elevate the travel experience by offering onboard gourmet snacks featuring fresh, diverse products from the Canary Islands, along with in-flight entertainment and mobile charging points.

To support this expansion, Binter has placed orders for five Embraer 195 E-2 aeroplanes, each with 132 seats. Three of these planes will be based in Madrid, while one will be stationed in Tenerife and another in Gran Canaria. This is the first time Binter will establish a base outside the Canary Islands. Additionally, in the summer, six more aircraft will join the fleet.

This new route is not only a game-changer for travellers but also for the job market. Binter's expansion means the creation of 300 new jobs, bringing the total workforce of the company to nearly 5,000 employees.

The impact of this move promises to be transformative, connecting the Canary Islands to the Spanish capital and enhancing accessibility and opportunities for residents and tourists alike.
