Specifically, the number of weekly flights between Pamplona and the Spanish capital will increase from 18 to 21. This measure, on the other hand, is the result of the agreement signed by the Government of Navarre, the Public Business Corporation of Navarre (CPEN), the Navarre Business Confederation (CEN) and the airline Iberia. The aim is to improve connectivity by facilitating travel to the business world and its possible international connection. It also aims to promote the mobility of the region’s productive sector in terms of quality.
Therefore, the frequency of flights from Pamplona to Madrid is as follows: four flights at 6:45 a.m. from Monday to Thursday; one flight at 9:25 a.m. on Saturdays; five flights at 10:40 a.m. from Monday to Friday; five flights at 1:55 p.m. on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; three flights at 5:45 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays; and three flights at 9:55 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
These flights also improve the connectivity of the region with Iberia’s international network of destinations in both the United States and Latin America. In this sense, the change responds to a need detected by the Government of Navarre, and contrasted by a survey carried out by the Navarre Business Confederation (CEN) to find out the priorities and needs of Navarre’s companies in terms of air connectivity.
The CEN business organisation promoted a consultation in which the region’s business community agreed on the need for more flights to be able to be in Madrid early in the morning, either to carry out business or attend meetings in the Spanish capital itself and return to Pamplona at night, or to access other air connections with the rest of the world.
The increase in early morning flights is therefore a measure that will boost Navarre’s competitiveness while responding to a demand from the region’s business community.
