Spain-based Grupo Globalia announced January 4 that its Air Europa airline subsidiary will launch three-times-a-week nonstop service between Medellin and Madrid starting June 1.

The company will employ new Boeing 787-9 “Dreamliner” jets, which can cut 40 minutes off flying time compared to competing jets on the same routes, according to Globalia.

Service to and from Medellin will be offered Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, offering new competition to Iberia’s and Avianca's existing nonstop flights between Medellin and Madrid.

Air Europa was quoting a COP$2 million (US$626) fare for round-trip nonstop Medellin (MDE)-Madrid(MAD)-MDE for flights starting June 1. Iberia meanwhile was quoting COP$2.13 million (US$668) if including two pieces of luggage in the plane's belly, or no belly luggage (just carry-on) for COP$1,84 million (US$576) for June nonstop RT flights.
