Train dis­counts spur Spain’s tourism fig­ures

TravTalk - India - - Associations -

SPAIN's Min­istry of Trans­port this week re­ported that rid­er­ship on Renfe AVE ser­vices has risen 14% year-on-year in the last four months to 4.7 mil­lion pas­sen­gers, fol­low­ing an 11% cut in all tourist class tick­ets in early Fe­bru­ary. The fare cuts were in­tro­duced as part of a raft of mea­sures in­clud­ing the launch of 10trip passes, and the in­tro­duc­tion of more flex­i­bil­ity in re­turn tick­ets, aimed at stem­ming the de­cline in high-speed pas­sen­ger num­bers, which fell 2.6% last year.
