Air Europa to connect Madrid and Stockholm

The Spanish airline is starting a new direct route from Stockholm to Madrid that will fly three times per week during the summer season.

The Spanish airline Air Europa will soon begin a direct route from Stockholm’s Arlanda airport to Madrid. During summer 2019, travellers will be able to fly directly from one capital to the other three times per week.

Passengers will fly between the cities on an Airbus A330, on flights that begin on June 17.

The connection will be operated on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in June and July, as well as on Mondays and Wednesdays from August to September 13.

This connection will also make it convenient for travellers to travel onward via Madrid to Air Europe’s destinations in South America.

“In just three years, the number of passengers has increased by 80% between Stockholm and Madrid. Therefore, we welcome this additional non-stop service between the two capitals. The new route meets the demand from both Swedish and Spanish travellers in both directions. It is also gratifying to be able to welcome a new airline, Air Europa, to Stockholm,” said Elizabeth Axtelius, aviation business director at airport operator Swedavia.

Tourism powerhouse
Air Europa is part of Globalia, Spain’s largest tourism conglomerate, with travel agencies and a tour operator supporting the airline.

The carrier launched in 1986 as Air España SA flying holiday charters from Mediterranean resorts and European cities. Juan José Hidalgo, CEO of Globalia, acquired a majority stake in it in 1991.
