From February, the airline will operate 16 daily connections, offering four outward flights and four return flights, with Gran Canaria and Tenerife North airports

Binter will fly to Madrid offering its differential quality service


Binter has announced two new routes that will connect the Canary Islands with Madrid from 1 February next year, with 16 flights a day on the Canary Islands-Madrid corridor, offering four flights in each direction, both to Tenerife and Gran Canaria. 

The presentation of the new connection took place at the headquarters of the Presidency of the Government in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in the presence of the President of the Canary Islands, Fernando Clavijo, together with the President of Binter, Rodolfo Núñez. Tickets are already on sale. 

At this meeting, Fernando Clavijo assured that "the new regular line that will link the archipelago with Madrid, not only represents a step forward in the expansion of a key company in the connectivity between the islands and between the Canary Islands and the world, but also comes at the ideal moment", in a market that has had to coexist in recent years with the consequences of a pandemic and the concentration of companies in the air market, "having a direct impact, not only on the supply of seats, but also on the final price paid by Canary Islanders to travel to destinations such as Madrid, or for those who visit us. "That is why," he said, "news like today's is another step forward, not only in the expansion of a flagship Canary Islands company like Binter, but also in the connectivity of the Islands".

For his part, Rodolfo Núñez announced that on 1 February they will start flying to Madrid from Tenerife and Gran Canaria. "It is a project that we have made a reality thanks to the involvement and enthusiasm of all the people who work at Binter, something that I would like to highlight on this special day. We will have five new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft; we are hiring and training many crews, technicians and staff from various departments and areas; and we are going to open the first Binter base outside the Canary Islands. We are doing this because our customers, and society in general, are asking us to do so, there is a gap in the market for a non low cost company that complements the current offer and we believe that it is our duty to continue to position Binter as the airline of all Canary Islanders and of the Canary Islands". 

Núñez has also pointed out that "Binter offers another way of flying, different to the current low cost offer, which we believe can be very well received, with a service focused on offering quality to the customer from the purchase process to their arrival at their destination. It is the Canary Islands way of flying, which our passengers already value very positively". In addition, "We will continue to maintain our commitment to the Canary Islands, facilitating connections with the five remaining islands at no cost thanks to the 210 flights we operate on average every day between the islands". 

For this new launch, the company will allocate five new Embraer 195-E2 aircraft, which are characterised by their cutting-edge technology, sustainability and noise reduction. The five aircraft will join the airline's fleet in the coming months. Of these aircraft, three will be based in Madrid and two in the Canary Islands (one in Tenerife North and one in Gran Canaria).


Schedules and fares

The offer of flights and seats that the airline has programmed will make it possible to offer new alternatives to those passengers who wish to travel at very convenient times, enjoying during the flight distinctive comforts such as ample space between rows, configuration of rows with two seats, gourmet aperitif included, entertainment service with the latest news free of charge, as well as hand luggage in the cabin included in all fares. 

Binter will operate eight daily flights between the airports of Tenerife North (TFN) and Gran Canaria (LPA) and Madrid (MAD).

The company points out that the timetables have been defined to cover the needs of the different types of passengers (tourists, work, visits to family and friends, etc.) as well as to maximise connectivity.

With regard to the fare structure, Binter offers its customers a wide range of fares, adapted to the specific needs of flexibility and the elements included in them. They range from economy fares such as Basic, which includes hand luggage on board and does not allow changes, to Comfort and Premium fares which offer maximum flexibility and include high-value services such as free side seat, priority boarding services, VIP lounge, fast track, etc...
