Air Europa, the second largest airline in Spain, is expanding its business in Israel by adding routes to destinations in South and Central America.
In addition to the three weekly flights it already operates on the Madrid (MAD) to Tel Aviv (TLV) route, starting in June 2016, the company will operate an additional flight leaving Tel Aviv on Monday morning, with the return flight landing in Israel on Sunday night.
At present, the route offers a 3 X weekly service between Tel Aviv and Madrid as well as convenient connecting flights to Latin America including Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Lima, Montevideo and more. The service also caters for passengers arriving from South America on their way to Israel.
Air Europa is also adding three follow-on routes from Madrid: to Bogota, Colombia, starting in late June, and to Cordoba, Argentina and Guayaquil, Ecuador, starting in late December.
The new destinations are being added to those to which the company already operates flights, including Salvador and Sao Paulo, Brazil; Lima, Peru; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Montevideo, Uruguay; Asuncion, Paraguay; New York; Miami; and others. In the summer, the airline is expected to operate flights to the resort city of Vardero in Cuba.
Air Europa now boasts a fleet of state-of-the-art Boeing, Airbus and Embraer aircraft with the highest quality and safety standards. Its airplane fleet is young; all of its planes are less than four years old. They are the only Spanish airline certified in all the areas of Quality, Safety and Environment. The company recently introduced a Boeing Dreamliner 787 on its route to Miami, and will soon do the same for Bogota. Its air fleet will be reinforced with 22 more airliners that it has already purchased.
