In 2021, the airline CEO has announced the intention to start direct connections between Andorra La Seu d’Urgell Airport and Madrid, Porto, Paris, and Palma de Mallorca.

The frequency of flights and the price of tickets have not been disclosed. This is the second time Andorra Airlines is preparing to start a regular flight plan. In February 2016, the company came forward intending to offer 500 operations a year that could carry about 24,000 passengers. A few weeks later, the project was postponed.
According to the CEO of Andorra Airlines, Jorge Soriano, the first commercial operation with passengers will take place in Madrid and will be held twice a week. “We want to start connecting Andorra with the Spanish capital by enabling two regular weekly journeys,” he said. Andorra Airlines plans to carry out a round-trip air operation on Wednesdays and another on Fridays to the Principality and Sunday flight back to Madrid.
Soriano explained that Andorra Airlines aims to take advantage of the rest of the ski season to allow tourists to arrive in the country on weekends and promote professional interactions during the week to boost the current situation and offer more business opportunities. “We are not the solution in the country, but we want to be a tool to help in the current tourist situation due to the COVID pandemic,” he said.
Tickets sale would take place through the online platform Wold Travel and the country’s travel agencies.
Andorra Airlines leased ATR 72-500 Turboprop of Canaryfly with a crew, that should start operating from 15/3/2021.
The aircraft is equipped for 70 people, but due to COVID-19 restrictions and operational limitations of the airport, the number of passengers is capped to 50 seats. The airline expects to expand capacity, timetables, and destinations, including major European cities if the tourism sector allows it.
