July 15 () –
Air Europa and Air Europa Express have completed this week the unification of the fleet around the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Boeing 737 models after the only ATR 72, which remained active, operated its last flight between Alicante and Madrid this Friday.
The general director of Air Europa Express, Toni Gimeno, together with other managers of the airline, have been part of the passengers of the last flight of the aircraft and have paid tribute to the crew of this fleet.
Air Europa and Air Europa Express thus put an end to more than a decade of operations aboard this model of turboprop aircraft, with which they have flown some of their domestic routes and operated inter-island flights, both in the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands.
Throughout these years, the ATR fleet has operated more than 135,000 flights and has transported almost six million passengers. With the departure of this last aircraft, Air Europa and Air Europa Express complete the fleet unification process around the Boeing 787 Dreamliner models for long haul and Boeing 737-800 for medium and short haul.
Both aircraft, with greater capacity in their respective categories, allow more people to be transported with fewer flights, which results in greater efficiency and a notable reduction in emissions.
The unification of the fleet is one of the basic pillars of the 2023-2025 Strategic Plan, approved by the company to consolidate the organization and expand its activity at all levels, establishing sustainability, efficiency, innovation and excellence in customer service. client as strategic axes for its growth.
