The European Regions Airline Association (ERA), to which most of Europe¿s regional airlines belong, has this year named Binter Canarias the best regional airline in Europe. The award was received at a ceremony in Gothenburg (Sweden) by Andreas Blass, General Manager of Binter. This is the third time that Binter Canarias has been awarded the prestigious and competitive gold award, having previously received this honour in 1991 and 1992.

The decision of the ERA, made after assessing the large number of regional airlines on the Continent, confirms the fact that the great change undergone by Binter Canarias in the last year has been beneficial for the activity of the airline in all respects. Highlights include the renewal of the fleet, the change of image, the complete adaptation to market trends, the ambitious plans for expansion and the maintaining of unchanging levels of regularity and punctuality.

Mr Blass expressed gratitude for the efforts made by the shareholders of the Canary Islands airline in terms of investments. He also stated that the challenges the airline once faced have been overcome, and that the airline now has a solid base from which to carry out its activities, creating its own market niche. ¿We have shown that we are not afraid of change or of constantly reinventing the company, if in this way our standards of quality and service are improved¿, he said.

The General Manager of Binter also highlighted the effort of all the employees of the company, which enables the airline to carry almost three million passengers and to be the leader on a day-to-day basis.

For Binter Canarias the award for Best Regional Airline in Europe shows how the Canary Islands brand has been established from a fresh perspective, with good management, in order to create a new business model.
