On Friday (July 7, 2023), Binter announced the launch of inaugural direct seasonal service between Gran Canaria (LPA) and Ibiza (IBZ), which will operate once weekly during July and August. The maiden flight departed Gran Canaria on Thursday, July 6th at 22:45 and arrived in Ibiza at 02:55 Friday morning. The return flight departed Ibiza at 03:40 and landed in Gran Canaria at 06:15. Prior to departure, a traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony was held with Binter’s Network Head Samuel Ferrera and Gran Canaria Airport’s Shift Manager Jacobo Santana.
Guests onboard the inaugural flight were treated to a special service including shots of honey rum with cream and cinnamon and were also gifted with a miniature 7-year-old Ron Arehucas, boho chic key chains and LED bracelets. Ibiza complements Binter’s existing service from the Canary Islands to Mallorca and Menorca. Flights to Mallorca (PMI) operate six times weekly with service from Gran Canaria on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and from Tenerife Norte-Ciudad de la Luna Airport on Wednesdays and Sundays. Flights between Gran Canaria and Menorca operate once weekly on Tuesdays.
Founded in 1989, Binter began flying in the Canary Islands archipelago with service connecting the islands and a clear focus on public service. The company was acquired from the Iberia Group in 2002 by a group of Canarian investors, becoming a 100 percent Canary Islands company. In 2005, the airline began to operate flights outside of the Canary Islands with the goal of offering direct connections to other markets. In 2018, the airline began regular service to national destinations, first to Mallorca and Vigo, and later to Pamplona, Zaragoza, Murcia, Santander, Vitoria, Asturias and Jerez de la Frontera. Binter has since substantially expanded their domestic and international network.
