This comes as part of a project carried out by the private company Iryo, which is launching a route with two daily departures starting at €34 euros.
The inaugural journey will take place on March 31.
Behind this is the private company Iryo, which has already put these tickets on sale. Both cities are already connected by Renfe, but this new way of travelling is characterised by the price of its tickets.
The company offers three different fares for these journeys: Initial flexible (cheapest), singular flexible (average price), and infinite bistro flexible (most expensive).
The cheapest fare is €34.28 between Madrid and Malaga and €43.75 in the opposite direction.
The railway operator, Iryo, will start competing with Renfe and Ouigo (SNCF) in the Spanish high-speed network, aiming to attract 8 million passengers by 2025.
The Madrid-Andalusia link will not be deployed until the end of March 2023, followed by the Madrid-Alicante route, which will not be carried out until June next year.
