Spanish carrier Air Europa will for the first time launch non-stop service from Stockholm Arlanda Airport when it starts on 17 June to Madrid.
During the summer of 2019, passengers will be able to fly direct to Madrid, with three weekly departures. The direct route between the two capitals will be served three times a week until 13 September with an Airbus A330.
“In just three years, the number of passengers has increased 80 per cent between Stockholm Arlanda and Madrid. We therefore welcome this additional non-stop service between the two capitals.
“The new route meets the demand from Swedish and Spanish travellers in both directions. It is also gratifying to be able to welcome a new carrier, Air Europa, to Stockholm,” said Elizabeth Axtelius, director of aviation business at Swedavia.
Air Europa is the airline of Globalia, the largest Spanish tourism conglomerate which operates a wide network of destinations to South America from Madrid.
