Latin America specialist, Air Europa, has commenced long-haul services to Bolivia as it further expands its network into Latin America.
The twice-weekly flights to Santa Cruz depart from Gatwick via Madrid, connecting UK travellers to Bolivia, home to colourful indigenous communities and to breath-taking landscapes of the salt flats Salar de Uyuni and Lake Titicaca.
Colin Stewart, UK general manager of Air Europa said: “We are delighted that this new route is now underway. Bolivia had not been sufficiently connected to the European traveller and now Air Europa offers the perfect gateway to this exciting, upcoming and highly dynamic region”.
“By adding Santa Cruz to our growing portfolio of long-haul destinations we are cementing our status as the “Airline of the Year to South America.”
Flights from Madrid to Santa Cruz will use the new Airbus 330-200, while passengers on the Gatwick to Madrid connection will be flown in the Boeing 737, which replaced the Embraer 195 earlier this year, increasing capacity by some 120 seats a day.
Air Europa offers short connection times of less than three and a half hours, baggage allowance of 23kg and a modern fleet of aircraft. The new route to Bolivia confirms the airline’s status as the leader of long-haul flights to the region, and complements existing services across South America and the Spanish Caribbean including Buenos Aires, Argentina, Caracas, Venezuela, Havana, Cuba and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
