Latin American and Caribbean specialist Air Europa has announced the launch of a new route to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
From May 22nd 2014, the airline will fly twice weekly to the sun-kissed Caribbean Island, from London Gatwick via Madrid Barajas.
San Juan is renowned not just for its golden beaches, Caribbean seas, cruises, and luxurious neighbouring resorts, but also as a cultural and business capital for the region.
Puerto Rico is an important host of conferences, with many hotels and centre’s providing some of the Caribbean’s best services.
Business travellers to San Juan will enjoy a number of benefits resulting from the airline’s membership of the SkyTeam alliance, such as the SkyPriority airport services program and the FlyingBlue air miles scheme.
Flights are projected for Thursdays and Sundays, departing Madrid at 13:30 and arriving in San Juan at 22:05, with return flights departing at 00:35 and arriving in Madrid at 08:45.
All times are UTC and subject to confirmation.
Colin Stewart, UK general manager for Air Europa, said: “San Juan is another exciting addition to our ever expanding long-haul portfolio.”
