increase express fuerteventura iberia by flights 2019

Iberia Express will increase number of flights to Fuerteventura by 12% in 2019
The airline Iberia Express has announced within the framework of Fitur, the International Tourism Fair that takes place these days in Madrid, the increase of 12% in air seats from Madrid to Fuerteventura this summer and the winter 2019/2020.

The majorero delegation learned about Iberia Express's forecasts during a meeting held this morning in Ifema between the manager of the Tourist Board, Moisés Jorge, and representatives of the company. Likewise, the members of Iberia Express transferred their intention to increase the number of overnight stays on the island.

The vice-president and councillor of Tourism of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura, Bas Acosta, thanked Iberia Express for "the bet that is being made in recent years and that is allowing us to gain in connectivity with the Peninsula what, without a doubt, will affect the arrival of national tourists in the coming months to the island. "

The island will have direct flights with Porto and Lisbon during the summer months.

On the other hand, the Portuguese tour operator Ego Travel has announced that it will start operating, for the first time this summer, with Fuerteventura through a charter flight operated by TAP Portugal. The new route will link the island every Tuesday from June to September with the cities of Oporto and Lisbon.

The Tourist Board of Fuerteventura has these days in Fitur more than twenty meetings with tour operators and airlines.

The manager of the Tourist Board, Moisés Jorge, acknowledged the start of an edition of Fitur with "some pessimism" after knowing the decline in reserves of almost 17% of the German market on the island, which is "a serious blow to the island taking into account that Germany is the main market for the island. "

However, Jorge moved a message of tranquillity "because we are trying to contrast them with national tourism" with almost 12% growth with the island in 2019 through the air planes that "we maintain with Madrid, Bilbao, Santiago de Compostela, Seville , Málaga and Barcelona and the new regular line that will operate from this spring with Vueling to Valencia ".

Sam - I read this as an increase of 12% in flights/seats, not prices.

You are correct. Not a price increase but a capacity increase.
