Montferrer airport, which serves the Principality of Andorra situated in the Pyrenees mountains between Spain and France, has resumed commercial operations as of Sunday, July 19.

Closed to commercial traffic in 1984, the airfield was reopened to general aviation in 2010 before attaining commercial certification in January of this year.

As such, La Seu d'Urgell-based travel agency Regina has chartered an ATR72-500 from Swiftair (WT, Madrid Barajas) to offer flights to Madrid Barajas and Palma de Mallorca on July 18 and 25, and on August 8.

Air Andorra (Montferrer) has also expressed an interest in serving the airport, located just 12km from the Andorran border.
