Air Europa started weekly non-stop service between Miami and Tenerife today. The inaugural flight was sold-out, and Air Europa is already seeing over 70% loads on the weekly service. Air Europa also announced today the flight, which was to operate only during the summer timetable, will run for at least the first half of the winter timetable, through the end of January. A second weekly flight is also being considered.

South Florida is home to the largest Canarian population in the United States, and the size of the community has grown tremendously in the past few years due to many Canarians moving to Miami from Venezuela. Canarians ex-pats, like those from the Azores, have a tendency to fly home very often.

Inaugural flight (Spanish):

Good luck to Air Europa, and its great there is finally a flight linking Miami and the Canary Islands.

Anybody have pictures of the festivities at MIA?

I was busy afterwards helping take back the sign stands and flagpoles, so I couldn't take any more photos. There were some community leaders and several news crews there, as well as the Deputy Aviation Director. The word is they plan on increasing the frequency soon.

As always, more photos and full story on my blog

Wish Air Europa would advertise the service a bit more
at the Canary Island end, plus perhaps arrange some
code share with Binter to offer feed to/from the other islands...


Hopefully it will work out anyway...

good luck

70% loadfactor in the first month, already extended into the winter season and a second weekly frequency is coming.

So far, its clearly working.

And OB1504, awesome pics! Thanks!
