Returning airlines to deliver more flights between Miami and Europe

Two European airlines are returning to Miami International Airport later this year.

XL Airways France, a low-cost carrier, will offer three nonstop flights a week between Miami and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport starting May 25. The seasonal service, on a 408-seat Airbus A330-300, lasts until Aug. 29. The airline also flew between the two destinations last summer.

Spanish airline Air Europa, which last served MIA in 2010, will start flying between Miami and Madrid on June 4. Flights will be three times a week on an Airbus A330-200 with 299 seats. Until Aug. 17, the plane will arrive at MIA, fly round-trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and then leave Miami for Madrid.

After Aug. 17, flights will go directly between Miami and Madrid.

According to the airport, the new service will bring as many as 2,100 visitors to Miami every week.
