New airline Balearics receives its first aircraft


Palma - The new airline Balearics, the Spanish subsidiary of one of the largest travel groups in Europe, begins to take shape.

Just after receiving its Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) from the Spanish authorities, Balearics, the Spanish bet of the Thomas Cook Group, welcomed the first aircraft of the company. The A320 registered EC-MTJ, arrived at Palma de Mallorca on March 21 to begin the training of the crews and thus start scheduled flights in coming days.

The first route will be launched between Palma (Spain) and Hannover (Germany). With new acquirements in April and May, the fleet will reach four aircraft in total for the summer season.

The project, as highlighted by the company, is important for Spain, as it is an initiative promoted by one of the most prominent travel groups in Europe.

Balearics is the new company of the air division of the tourist giant Thomas Cook, Thomas Cook Airlines, which has an operating fleet of 119 aircraft.
