New Startup Airline In The Canary Islands

A brand-new startup airline has formed on the sunny island of Tenerife, Spain! Through this write-up, you will learn all about this new airline and its hopes for the future!

What is Canarian Airways?

Canarian Airways is a startup short-haul carrier in the Canary Islands of Spain! Based in Tenerife, the airline aims to launch flights to many popular destinations such as Barcelona, Berlin, Madrid, Glasgow, and many other destinations!

The airline was formed by a group of tourist entrepreneurs in Tenerife and became a reality after five long years!

The first Canarian Airways airplane

The first airplane to be delivered to a startup is a 9 -year old Airbus A319, with registration EC-NMO. The airplane also flew previously for Atlantic Airways under the registration OY-RCG and is currently being re-fitted to an all-economy cabin with 144 seats.

Does Canarian Airways stand a chance?

Yes, Canarian Airways does stand a high chance of succeeding and becoming the Canary Islands’ leading airline because its competitor, Binter Canarias, does not operate to most of the destinations Canarian Airways does! Also, the Canary Islands is a top-rated tourist destination during winter. This is due to the islands’ warm temperature, making it a place to escape the cold mainland European winters.

In a nutshell, Canarian Airways is likely to succeed, unlike most startup airlines. The airline has many plans for the future but did not go all-in at first. They went into the market gradually with a few planes and a small market. This is a sign that the owners know what they are doing because patience always leads to success!
