Air Europa’s intercontinental reputation

With its impressive range of premium aircraft and a ground support network that is second to none, Air Europa is the obvious choice for travel between Europe and Latin America


Air Europa, the Latin America specialist, provides convenient flight times to over 37 destinations at competitive prices to suit the needs of every business traveller. Boasting an impressive 96 percent punctuality rate and with a modern fleet, Air Europa ensures that you’ll always be in time for that brunch meeting in Madrid, an afternoon brainstorm in Buenos Aires, or sales meeting in Salvador da Bahia.

Air Europa operates two daily flights from London Gatwick to Madrid, departing at 10:00 and 17:05. The airline has recently boosted capacity on this route by replacing the Embraer 195 with Boeing to accommodate even more business travellers. The flights on this route are reasonably priced, with fares starting at just £75.66 return, including taxes.

Unlike other airlines flying from London to Madrid, there are no hidden extras or baggage charges.

More frequent services
2012 will be Air Europa’s fourth year of operation in the UK. This summer will see the airline increase its Lima service to daily flights in response to growing demand. Using the new Airbus 330-200 and with short connection times of less than three and a half hours, the daily flights provide business travellers with even greater flexibility when booking a trip to the Peruvian capital.

The short connection times via its Gatwick-Madrid service mean onward travel to a host of destinations is easy, including Buenos Aires; Argentina, Salvador de Bahia; Brazil, Havana; Cuba and Caracas; Venezuela. These long-haul destinations are attracting an increasing number of business travellers; Caracas welcomes a large number of corporate visitors each year while Havana and Buenos Aires continue to increase their presence in the business world.

The 10:00 flight from London Gatwick to Madrid has perfectly timed connections with less than two hours and five minutes for flights to Havana, Cancun, Caracas and Santo Domingo. The 17:05 flight also links with night flights to Lima and Buenos Aires. Passengers will check their luggage in London, and not collect it again until their arrival in South America or the Caribbean. Transfers in Madrid couldn’t be simpler as Air Europa’s long and short haul flights all connect in Terminal 1.

A class act
Business Class passengers can also expect the highest levels of comfort with Air Europa’s exclusive check-in counters, complimentary access to the VIP Lounge and priority luggage unloading, so you’ll always arrive feeling fresh for those important business meetings abroad. Business Class passengers will also benefit from ergonomically designed seats, delicious Mediterranean-style food, receive newspapers, welcome drinks and refresher towels. Fares on the Gatwick-Madrid route in Business Class start from £398.66 return, including taxes.
