Spain has an extensive network of commercial air routes and is home to several international and regional airports, the largest of which is Madrid-Barajas Airport (MAD). The major airlines operating at MAD are Air Europa, EasyJet, Ryanair and Iberia Airlines - which is the flag carrier of Spain. The Spanish Civil Aviation Authority - Ministerio de Fomento is the authority responsible for overseeing and regulating the air transport industry in Spain as well as the Canary Islands. The Canary Islands are a Spanish cluster of islands located just of the Northwest coast of Africa, which are also part of the European Union. A number of airlines fly into the seven Canary Islands all of which have an airport. International flights are frequent as well as those from mainland Spain and inter-island flights. The majority of international flights serving the islands are charters.
