The Binter airline inaugurated this Monday, October 28, its third national air route, which will connect the Canary archipelago with Pamplona twice a week. The first flight to the Navarrese capital took off from Gran Canaria Airport at 10:10 a.m. to take a run at Pamplona Airport at 2:05 p.m., where he was received with the traditional water arch.
The inauguration of the flight in Gran Canaria It was attended by the Government subdelegate, Teresa Mayans; the general director of Tourism Planning and Promotion of the Canary Islands Government, Ciprián Rivas; the Minister of Tourism of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, Carlos Álamo, and the director of Gran Canaria Airport, Santiago Martínez-Cava. The Commercial and Marketing director, Miguel Ángel Suárez, was present on the part of the airline.
The passengers of this first flight they were able to enjoy the ribbon cutting, which represents the beginning of the air route, and a commemorative cake of the moment courtesy of Aena.
Miguel Angel Suarez He highlighted the work that Binter does to open new direct connections with destinations that until now were not connected with the Canary Islands, increasing the facilities for travel to and from the Islands. "With the inaugural flight to Pamplona we start three national air routes that facilitate access to the north and east of the Peninsula and, specifically, to three very interesting destinations economically and touristically speaking."
These flights Bombardier CRJ 1000 airplanes will be carried out on board, a comfortable aircraft in which the passenger will receive the standard onboard service of the Canary airline, which includes seat selection, a piece of luggage up to 23 kilos included, press and a menu Courtesy.
In addition, Binter will offer passengers on the route, free of charge, the connection with their flights to any of the other Canary Islands in order to facilitate more complete connectivity.
Also, Suarez stressed the good reception of these routes and their stability, since the Canarias-Pamplona connection, as well as those that will begin the next two days with Zaragoza and Murcia, are not seasonal, but regular, and will be available all year.
For its part, Teresa Mayans He pointed out that the Government of Spain is committed to the connectivity of the islands, "because we are an outermost and fragmented territory and, for this reason, we have to congratulate the Binter company because it has clearly opted to connect the Canaries with other destinations and we encourage them to continue working on that line. "
Ciprián Rivas He pointed out that "to establish a relationship with Navarra through Binter is to link two communities with deep roots that mark very defined personalities. On the one hand, the explosion of cultures influenced by the Romanesque and the Way of Europe. On the other, the breadth of the Atlantic Ocean that communicates with Macaronesia, America and Asia. Two different ways of seeing the world united by a Canarian company that is committed to connectivity between people. I wish Binter all kinds of successes on this new route that joins those of Vigo, Mallorca, Murcia and Zaragoza '' '
Also, the Island Tourism Advisor, Carlos AlamoHe stressed that after the latest events in the tourism sector, "the increase in connectivity of Gran Canaria with anywhere in the world is hopeful news that opens a new window to the national market, allows to improve the economy by expanding trade ties and propitiates the arrival of new tourists, fundamental objective for the Tourist Board ".
