On Friday (December 2, 2022), Binter announced at the Aeronautical Days Conference in Gran Canaria the placement of an order for five Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. The conference for journalists in the aviation sector was held at the Salobre Hotel Resort & Serenity from November 20th through December 2, 2022.

Speaking about the additional E195-E2 order on Friday at the Aeronautical Days conference, Binter’s General Coordinator, Santiago Guerra, said,


“The experience acquired over the years confirms the excellent assessment that our customers make of this aircraft model, which fits very well with Binter's longest routes and those with the highest volume of passengers, and the arrival of new jets will allow us to expand the offer of routes and destinations that we have right now.”


In an earlier press release from the Aeronautical Days event on Thursday (December 1st, 2022), Binter announced details of their summer 2023 flying program, which includes over 45 routes to destinations in up to 10 countries. The schedule will include 12 percent more capacity than summer 2022, with over 650,000 seats on offer. During the peak summer 2023 season, Binter will also operate up to 220 weekly flights to destinations outside of the canary islands.

Capacity will be increased to Ponta Delgada (PDL), the island of Sal (SID), and Menorca (MAH). New seasonal service to Fez (FEZ) will continue, as well as direct connections between Madeira (FNC) and Marrakech (RAK), Fuerteventura (FUE), Lanzarote (ACE), and Tenerife Sur (TFS). The reinforcement of service to Ponte Delgada will also facilitate an expansion of codeshared flights with SATA to New York (JFK), Boston (BOS) and Toronto (YYZ).


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.
