Air Europa, the Latin America specialist, has increased its frequency to Lima to keep up with the growing demand for flights to the South American hotspot.

From 26 June, the airline's scheduled flights to Lima will be daily, significantly boosting capacity on the popular route. The service, which currently operates twice weekly, will move to five times a week from 5 April, with daily flights taking off by the end of June.

Using the new Airbus 330-200 and with short connection times of less than three and a half hours, the daily flights from London Gatwick via Madrid offer UK travellers even more flexibility when booking a break to the Peruvian capital.

The daily flights to Lima are the latest addition to the airline's extensive list of daily services to a host of exciting Latino destinations including Buenos Aires; Argentina, Caracas; Venezuela, Havana; Cuba and Santo Domingo; Dominican Republic.

"Due to unprecedented demand after its successful introduction in 2010, Lima has become one of our key routes and we're proud to expand our schedule in time for the busy summer season," says Colin Stewart, UK General Manager, Air Europa.

"2012 will be Air Europa's fourth year of operation in the UK and we can't think of a better way to celebrate our progress than by providing our customers with daily flights to Lima."

The airline has also boosted capacity on its Gatwick to Madrid connection by replacing the Embraer 195 with Boeing, adding an extra 120 seats a day to the route.

With its competitive prices, excellent customer service and a generous baggage allowance of a minimum of two pieces of 23kg per person, Air Europa has firmly established itself as the airline of choice for flights to Latin America and the Spanish Caribbean.
