NAYSA has now ceased operations after merging into Binter Canarias in 2018.
NAYSA (Navegacion y Servicios Aéreos Canarios) was a regional airline based in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Spain, operating scheduled and charter flights alongside air taxis, cargo flights, crew transfers and air ambulance flights.
The company was established and started operations in May 1969, and started operating flights to and from the Canary Islands in 1973. It is credited as one of the first Commuter Airlines in Europe, and started the first regular services between the Canary Islands and the Spanish Sahara, as well as linking Madrid Barajas wth smaller airports in Spain.
NAYSA served destinations in Spain, Portugal and the Canary Islands, including Madeira Airport, El Hierro Airport, La Gomera Airport, Lanzarote Airport, and Fueteventura Airport.
Binter decided to merge NAYSA into its own operations in spring 2018 - since then, all of the former NAYSA flights are now part of Binter's operations.
Naysa had different baggage policies for carry-on baggage and checked baggage.
Naysa allowed passengers to bring one piece of carry-on baggage and one personal item, such as a briefcase, camera bag, or small backpack, on board the aircraft. Carry-on items should fit into the overhead bins or under the seat in front of you.
The dimensions of your carry-on baggage (including any wheels and handles) should not exceed a combined width, length, and height of 114 cm.
Checked baggage cannot weigh over 32kg due to international health and safety regulations and it must not exceed the permitted size allowance.
Naysa now operates as Binter Canarias and follows Binter Canarias' check-in rules. Visit the Binter Canarias page to find out more about Binter Canaria's check in policies.
Naysa operated to a number of destinations within Portugal and Spain.
