Binter Announces New Madeira – Marrekech Route

This summer Binter is launching a new route between Madeira and Marrakech as well as two new Canaries routes to Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.

While discussing the airline’s new destinations, Binter’s Commercial and Marketing Director, Miguel Ángel Suárez, stressed the company’s commitment to Madeira by saying “At Binter we are very aware of how important air connections are for the inhabitants of the archipelago. These new routes are a demonstration of the commitment we have acquired with the Madeirans and their need for mobility.”

Suárez said that Marrakesh is a trendy destination and that several specialised sites chose it as a happening tourist destination thanks to its cultural, gastronomic attractions and its safety. He went on to say that it proved to be a successful destination from the Canaries and that he believes that it will provide equally attractive to Madeiran residents.

The flights commence on the 15th of July and will operate every Wednesday and Saturday during the high season until the 12th of September.  Flights will depart from Madeira International Airport at 10:30 arriving in Marrakesh-Menara Airport at 12:30. From there, a return flight is scheduled to depart at 13:15 hours and will land at Madeira International Airport at 15:45 hours.

Tickets are now available and cost €70 each way from Madeira and €80 for those travelling from Porto Santo. Also, passengers from Porto Santo have the choice to spend several days in Madeira before flying to Marrakech.

Binter has announced that they will be using an ATR-72, which can carry 72 passengers.  They also advise that there will be a ‘courtesy menu’ and flights will qualify as part of their loyalty programme.
