Binter has announced it will open new routes to Europe starting in July.

The company will open new routes to Lille, Marseille and Toulouse in France as well as Turin and Venice in Italy.

The new routes will be operated with its new Embraer E195-E2 aircraft.

18 direct weekly flights between the Canary Islands and new European destinations 

Binter has scheduled 18 flights per week with new European destinations, so most will have connections two days a week. 

In the case of France, connections to Lille will be on Mondays and Thursdays departing at 10.45 am from Gran Canaria and return at 16:40, with arrival time in the Canary Islands at 20.00 hours. Toulouse will be linked on Tuesdays and Saturdays with a very similar schedule, departing at 10.30 hours on Tuesdays and at 11.00 on Saturdays from the Canary Islands and return at 15.45 hours, 16.15 in the case of Saturdays. With regard to the route with Marseille, there will be a frequency on Fridays with departure from the Islands at 10.30 hours and return at 16.10 hours, to make landfall in the Canary Islands at 19.00 hours. 

The two Italian destinations will have two weekly links. On Mondays and Wednesdays there will be flights to Venice departing from the Canary Islands at 10.20 am and return at 16.35 hours, to reach the Archipelago at 20.15 hours.

Binter began operating in the Canary Archipelago in 1989 to offer connections between all islands with a clear approach to public service. 

In 2005, it also began operating outside the Canary Islands with the aim of offering direct connections to other markets, a program that has been growing over the years. 

In Portugal, arriving in Lisbon and Madeira; in Africa, joining the Canary Islands with destinations such as Casablanca, Marrakech, Agadir, Dakhla, El Aaiún, Nuakchot, Dakar, Banjul and the island of Sal.  

In 2018, in addition, the airline began its regular operations with national destinations, first to Mallorca and Vigo and, subsequently, to Pamplona, Zaragoza, Murcia, Santander, Vitoria, Asturias and Cádiz (Jerez de la Frontera). In 2021, direct flights with Tarragona were incorporated. 

All these routes are added this summer by the Italian cities of Turin and Venice, and the French cities of Marseille, Toulouse and Lille, with which Binter connects the Canary Islands with a total of 26 destinations outside the Islands.
