Renfe, the main Spanish railway operator, has put on sale on Friday 100,000 tickets to travel on its high-speed trains (AVE) and long distance services at a price of 15 euros.
The company says that it is launching this campaign to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the opening of the first AVE service between Madrid and Seville, on 21 April 1992.
According to a press release, the tickets for this promotion will be on sale on 22, 23 and 24 April. Travelers will be able to use them to travel during the three summer months, between July 1 and September 30 in all national destinations.
Since the first 18 AVE trains came into service 30 years ago, Renfe has transported more than 464 million passengers on its high-speed trains, according to data released by the company.
Thirty years later, Spain has an extensive high-speed network and a fleet of 229 trains that run over 3,726 kilometers of high-speed rail on 13 lines passing through 57 cities.
Galicia, a new destination
The last high-speed destination to join Renfe's catalog of new destinations was Galicia.
Since December 2021, the company has started operating the AVE to the Galician city of Ourense in a journey time of 2 hours and fifteen minutes from Madrid.
This service has allowed travelers to shorten their trips by 88 minutes compared to the previous travel time.
