This new direct route offered by Air Europa is a historic event for the country as it will become the first direct air connection with Europe, which in turn means a bridge with some economic potencies of the world. But the importance of this flight goes much further; it is also the key in the promotion of European tourism to Honduras.

The flight from Madrid (MAD) arrives in San Pedro Sula (SAP) at 7AM. Roatan (RTB) is a short 20 minute flight from San Pedro Sula. Several local airlines cover the SAP-RTB route, including CM Airlines, which I recommend (their roundtrip fare SAP-RTB-SAP runs about US$200).
