German Airways has this week announced plans to base an Embraer E190 in Las Palmas, Canary Islands for Spanish carrier Binter.
This represents a new partnership forged between the two sides, which will see the aircraft based in the Winter 2023/24 schedule.
The carrier also said that it will be flying in the livery of Binter from November, with German Airways providing this cover so then the aircraft belonging to the Spanish carrier can undergo maintenance.
The E190 in Las Palmas for Binter Is An Exciting Partnership for German Airways…
Commenting on this new partnership was Maren Wolters, the Managing Director of German Airways:
“We are very pleased about this new partnership.”
“We are expecting a very demanding operation for which we are well equipped.”
“Both airlines share the same passion for excellent service and travel comfort.”
The carrier will be helping Binter connect all seven major Canary Islands, and the eight airports within it, with Las Palmas being the base for this jet.
Binter also flies to the likes of:
- Madeira, Portugal.
- Cape Verde.
- Palma de Mallorca.
- West Africa.
As mentioned, Binter will be placing their own aircraft into maintenance over the Winter season, meaning that temporary replacement aircraft will be needed during this process.
Basing this aircraft in Las Palmas will provide a sufficient stopgap to make this happen, especially with the Winter season expecting to be relatively busy in that period.
Looking ahead, all eyes will be on German Airways to see how the Embraer E190 will perform in the Canary Islands over that period.
