Spanish airline Air Nostrum, Iberia’s franchise airline for regional flights, has resumed its commercial flights at Córdoba Airport. This happens after 16 years without regular flights. The recent renovation of the facility makes this possible.

Air Nostrum will inaugurate the airport with almost fifty flights this summer to Palma de Mallorca and Gran Canaria. In addition, the airline is investigating the possibilities of adding more destinations.

Palma de Mallorca

On Thursday 4 July, flight IB8446 from Palma de Mallorca returned to Córdoba. The first flight on the new route was operated with a CRJ1000 aircraft with a capacity of 100 passengers. In the arrivals hall, the first passenger, along with the other 65 occupants of this flight, was welcomed by the highest local authorities of Córdoba, representatives of Aena and the airline.

The return flight departed with 53 passengers to Mallorca. The route to the Balearic Islands will be operational until 1 September, with two weekly flights on Thursdays and Sundays. During this period, the airline operates 36 flights, with 3,600 seats available. It is expected that more tickets will be sold from Mallorca to Córdoba than the other way around. In doing so, the route contributes to supporting tourism in the Andalucian city.

Gran Canaria

In addition to the route to Mallorca, Air Nostrum will also operate a connection from Córdoba to Gran Canaria during the high summer season, between July 23 and August 27, with a weekly frequency on Tuesdays.

Incentive for airport and province

The director of the airport, Amelia Quintero, thanked Air Nostrum for its confidence in the destination of Córdoba. highlighted this milestone: “the implementation of the first regular route in 16 years for the airport and the province”.

The president of the Provincial Council of Córdoba, Salvador Fuentes, stressed: “This milestone not only connects the province of Córdoba with important destinations such as the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands, but also positions us as a top tourist destination. The new flights will boost tourism and trade, boosting our economy and creating new opportunities for all.

Mezquita, patio festival and much more

Córdoba was once one of the most important cities in the world. Romans, Moors and Catholics have conquered the city. Impressive sights from the different periods can still be found. For example, the Meqzuita, the Alcázar and the Jewish Quarter. For those who love flowers, the patio festival is a must. But there is also plenty to do or see in the province. Such as a visit to the Moorish city of Medina Azahara, or a visit to one of the most beautiful inland beaches.
