Javier Hidalgo, chief executive of Air Europa-owner Globalia Group, said: “We are satisfied with the partnership’s successful development which has placed Air Europa at the forefront and has significantly strengthened its competitiveness in the sector.

“We continue to renew our fleet.

“Both long-haul, with the incorporation of the new Boeing 787-9, the most efficient plane in existence today; and middle and short haul with the progressive arrival of three new Boeing 737-800 this year.
