Binter Inaugurates New Route between Gran Canaria and Menorca
Binter has launched new once weekly service between Gran Canaria and Menorca which will operate on Fridays. The carrier also offers complimentary connections on this route to and from any of the other Canary Islands.
On Friday (July 1st, 2022), Binter announced the launch of new service between Gran Canaria and Menorca. The inaugural flight departed Gran Canaria Airport (LPA) at 08:30 and landed in Menorca (MAH) at 12:40. The return flights departed Menorca at 13:30 and landing back in Gran Canaria at 15:55 (all times local). The route will be operated once weekly on Fridays, and Binter’s customers also benefit from complimentary connections on this route with flights to and from any of the other Canary Islands. Flights on this three hour and ten-minute route will be operated with a quiet, comfortable and efficient state-of-the-art Embraer E195-E2 aircraft configured with 132 seats.
Guests traveling onboard Friday’s inaugural flight to Menorca enjoyed a special service with the distribution of pastissets (powered sugar cookies from Spain). On the return flight from Menorca to Gran Canaria, Binter cabin crew wore a Canarian cap and scarf, while traditional music was played during the journey. Guests were also treated to a banana from the Canary Islands. Tickets on the new route are now available through all distribution channels including the airline’s website, bintercanarias.com.
Founded in 1989, Binter began flying in the Canary Islands archipelago with service connecting the islands and a clear focus on public service. 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, and for summer 2022 will offer up to 200 weekly flights from the Canary Islands to 31 airports.
