Air Europa makes Gatwick introduction

AIR EUROPA has introduced the Embraer 195 to its new twice-daily Gatwick – Madrid service.  It is a two class operation.  In another move Colin Stewart, formerly of BAA marketing at Stansted has been appointed as the carrier's first UK General Manager, based at Flight Directors, the airline's GSA (general sales agent).  He is keen to push the route’s connectivity at the Spanish capital to Buenos Aires, Caracas, Havana, and Santa Domingo.  “Air Europa is long- established, but not well known to the British traveller,” he said.  “Our aim is to exploit the South American market mainly through the travel trade.”  He said that further UK destinations from Madrid are being considered. www.air-europa.com
