It will also resume operations between Malaga and Melilla, as well as flights between the islands and the peninsula, in addition to internals between the islands. During the crisis, the latter have operated, although with a reduction in frequencies, to guarantee the mobility of those who needed to move.
At the moment, the only destination that will increase the number of weekly flights is Palma de Mallorca, although Air Europa will study the evolution of the demand for the other routes it offers in case it should increase the number of operations to facilitate the movement of those who want it. .

From that same date, it will also resume its flights to Marrakech, Tunisia and Tel Aviv with two weekly frequencies.
The new offers launched by Air Europa to travel this summer are valid from today until June 21, and allow travel until December 10 in the case of long-haul flights, and until November 30 in the rest of national and european routes. They also include a free exchange, paying only the difference in rate if the original rate at the time of the change is not available.
The Government, as OKDIARIO advanced a week ago and José Luis Ábalos confirmed today, will allow mobility between provinces that are in phase three as of June 8. In this way, when within a week 70% of Spanish territory is in the last phase of the de-escalation, citizens residing in those provinces that share phase will be able to go on vacation.
