In this way, Air Europa will return to China, the country it flew between 2005 and 2006, but had to stop operating due to lack of profitability and, in order not to repeat that failure, the group will enter the Asian continent at the hand of the Chinese giant Alibaba, more specifically through its travel platform, Fliggy.
Globalia participates in a cooperation agreement signed today between Fliggy and the National Institute of Tourism Promotion (Inprontur) of Argentina, whose objective is to position the South American country as a tourist destination among Chinese travelers.
