Air Europa: Low-Cost Across the Atlantic

Air Europa is a Spanish low-cost airline based in Mallorca and with Madrid as the main hub. The airline is one of the few airlines in the world with routes between continents.  Founded in 1986, Air Europa is today the third largest carrier in Spain after Iberia and Vueling with 44 destinations total. The airline is 100% owned by Globalia, a travel company managed by Juan José Hidalgo.

Since September 2007, Air Europa has been a member of the SkyTeam alliance, meaning you can earn Flying Blue Miles on all Air Europa flights. Air Europa sponsored me a flight from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Paris with a stopover in its hub, Madrid. The comfort on board was quite good, and I consider their 3-star rating by Skytrax fair.

Within Europe, Air Europa is a bit more expensive than other low-cost airlines such as Ryanair and EasyJet, but with better comfort. Where travellers actually can use Air Europa is when it comes to flights between Europe and other continents. You can find low-cost fares from Madrid to the following destinations:
Buenos Aires-Ezeiza, Cancún, Caracas, Dakar, Havana, La Romana, Lima, London-Gatwick, Miami, Montevideo, New York-JFK, Punta Cana, Salvador da Bahia, San Juan, Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Santo Domingo, Santiago de Chile, São Paulo-Guarulhos, Tel Aviv-Ben Gurion and seasonal flights to Las Vegas.

I thank Air Europa for their support to my project and look forward to flying them again in the future.
