Air Europa WTMWorld Travel Market saw Air Europa promote its new 2019 routes to Panama and Iguazu, Argentina.

The new flight to Panama will be operated by a Dreamliner aircraft and commence on February 25, 2019, with five flights a week between Madrid’s Barajas International Airport and Tocumen International Airport, the international airport of Panama City. Connections will feed in from all over Europe, including London’s Gatwick airport.

The twice-weekly flight to Puerto Iguazu, Argentina will commence in June 2019, a third destination in the country for the airline, after Buenos Aires and Córdoba.  It will be the first international service for the airport, with the region being a popular tourist destination well known for the Iguazu Falls, the largest waterfall system in the world.

Since last year’s WTM event the Brazilian city of Recife has also been added to the Air Europa long haul network, the third Brazilian destination for the airline, the other two being Salvador de Bahía and Sao Paulo. 

These new additions mean that the number of Latin American destinations now served by the airline total 21 across 14 counties. Long haul flights to Latin America operate out of the airline’s hub at Madrid airport with Air Europa short haul services connecting in from all over Europe, including a twice-daily service from London Gatwick.

This year has also seen the Latin America specialist airline enter phase two of its $3.5billion fleet investment programme which will see 27 Dreamliner 787 aircrafts delivered by 2022 and the Air Europa team will be promoting the aircraft’s superior level of passenger comfort and onboard services throughout WTM and into the new year.

Colin Stewart, the airline’s UK team director, said: “Air Europa has firmly established itself as Europe’s Latin America specialist airline and World Travel Market is the perfect opportunity for us to showcase our product, airline news and growing route network. Further expansion plans are in place for 2019 and in anticipation an additional five Dreamliners, up from the three originally planned, are to be delivered. Our fleet expansion plan was for 22 Dreamliners by 2022 – this has now been increased to 27 by 2022.”
