Air Europa, the Latin American specialist, celebrated the second anniversary of its twice daily Gatwick to Madrid service yesterday.

Since the launch in 2009 the airline has taken 136,555 passengers on its Gatwick to Madrid route on 1,325 flights*.


This year the airline introduces Mexico City to its list of Latin American destinations and via the twice daily Gatwick to Madrid service, it now connects UK travellers to 11 destinations across South America, the Caribbean and the USA.

“The reason Air Europa has managed to launch and thrive during this recession is our competitive pricing, combined with our modern fleet and extras such as allocated seating and baggage allowance included,” says Colin Stewart, UK General Manager, for Air Europa.

“Over the last two years Latin American destinations have become increasingly popular amongst British travellers, who are getting more adventurous with their tastes. This trend has allowed Air Europa to grow its Latin American routes and become well known, for being an affordable, reliable and comfortable way to travel.”

“In the next two years we hope to further cement our relationship with both the travel trade and consumers so that Air Europa is the first airline people think of when planning a trip to Latin America.” Air Europa’s most popular destinations for UK passengers are Buenos Aires and Havana, followed by Lima and Miami, which were launched in 2010.

*Figures up to 31 January 2011.
