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. Currently, Binter’s international route network includes 16 routes with nine destinations in Africa and seven destinations in Europe. The carrier’s African network includes Casablanca, Marrakech, Agadir, Dakhla, El Aaiún, Nouakchott, Dakar, Banjul and Sal. Binter’s European network includes flights to Madeira, Lisbon, Lille, Marseille, Toulouse, Turin and Venice.


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. In 2021, Binter also added service to Tarragona.
