The airline will run one weekly flight from Madrid to San Pedro Sula from April 2017. The airline chose to begin flights in April and run them until October, just in time for Europe’s high season for tourism.
“This [new flight] means that we will have an open door to specific European destinations like, Barcelona, Bilbao, La Coruña, Vigo, Palma de Mallorca, Ibiza, Valencia, Alicante, Málaga, Tenerife, the Canary Islands, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Munich, Roma, Milan, Brussels, Amsterdam, Lisbon and Oporto, among other cities,” Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández declared.
This new route represents another step forward for economic development for Honduras, where the government has vowed to continue investing in tourism as a part of its Economic Development Plan, Honduras 20/20. This project is said to create over 7,000 jobs for Hondurans, while lowering costs for travelers, Bernama news reported.
By increasing connectivity throughout Central America, Honduras’ tourism initiatives seek to establish the country’s position within a more integrated and globalized world.
