Air Europa launches new summer route from Madrid to Varadero

Cuba is among the hottest summer destinations this year. Sugary palm-fringed beaches and excellent cigars aside, the island draws everyone’s attention as it heads in a new direction, with a more flexible economic policy. Many people want to be part of this exciting change and breathe the enthusiastic spirit that fills Cuba at present. Flying companies, including Air Europa, have taken notice and wish to invest in the island’s tourism and increase their services.

The Spanish carrier recently launched direct summer flights from Madrid to Varadero, Cuba’s number one sun and sand destination. The flights, which take place twice a week on-board an Airbus 330-200, will operate until 25th August. This new route will allow excellent connection through the airline’s hub in the Spanish capital, with the rest of the airline’s domestic and European destinations.

With this new addition, Air Europa reinforces its position in Latin America, the Caribbean and more precisely in Cuba, where it already operates daily flights to the capital, Havana. The company wishes to keep expanding its services in the continent in order to reposition itself as the growing airline between American and Europe.

Headquartered in Mallorca, Air Europa (UX) is Spain's third-largest airline. The carrier flies non-stop to about 45 destinations, including points within Spain as well as international destinations across Europe, Africa, Asia, North America and South America. Currently, Air Europa offers direct flights to Caribbean destinations like Santo Domingo, San Juan, Cancun and Punta Cana and flies non-stop from Madrid to Caracas, Lima, Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Salvador de Bahia, Sao Paulo, Montevideo, Asuncion, Bogota and Buenos Aires; as well as popular US cities New York and Miami.

Varadero is just one of the various Latin destinations the airline has focused on this year. Air Europa recently launched a new route with daily service to Colombia on 28th June, and has announced it will also launch a new five weekly service to Guayaquil – Ecuador on December 16th this year, as well as introducing four weekly flights to Cordoba - Argentina on 18th December, via Asuncion (Paraguay).

Air Europa is just one of the various carriers that have taken an interest. Spanish companies have invested considerable sums in Cuban tourism this year, including Iberia which began operating more flights between Spain and the island since February. Moreover, experienced British carrier, Virgin Atlantic announced it would begin flying to Varadero as soon as 2017. As one of Cuba’s premium holiday destinations, Varadero’s famous beaches and world class resorts can now be accessed directly from London Gatwick with Virgin Atlantic, with services due to commence in April 2017.
