Binter Launches Largest Schedule With Morocco in Airline’s History

On Thursday (March 16, 2023), Binter announced the launch of their largest schedule to Morocco in the company’s history, including three new routes. From July, the carrier will launch new service from Gran Canaria (LPA) to Essaouira (ESU) and Tangier (TNG). The Essaouira route will operate twice weekly on Tuesdays and Saturdays, while Tangier flights will operate once weekly on Wednesdays. Additionally, Binter will launch new once weekly service between Lanzarote (AC) and Guelmim (GLN) on Saturdays, complementing existing service between Gran Canaria and Guelmim.


For 2023 thus far, Binter has offered over 78,000 seats on up to 36 weekly flights across 11 routes and eight destinations in North Africa, including Fez, Marrakech, Agadir, Guelmim, El Aaiún, and Dakhla, and from July Tangier and Essaouira will be added. The routes to Morocco will be operated with a 72-passenger ATR 72-600 turboprop aircraft. Additionally, the route between Madeira and Lanzarote will continue to operate on Saturdays for summer, along with the routes between the Portuguese Archipelago and Fuerteventura, also on Saturdays, as well as to Tenerife Sur on Mondays and Wednesdays.


Binter’s expansion in Morocco has been possible thanks to the airline’s strong relationship with the Moroccan National Trust Office (ONMT), and the commitment of both parties for the recovery of tourism and connectivity with the Canary Islands.


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.
