AVE, Spain’s high speed trains, began serving the Madrid-Barcelona route cutting travel time to two hours and 38 minutes. When tickets went on sale, there were 20,000 bookings in one day. Last December new AVE service reduced trip times from Madrid to Segovia (from two hours to 30 minutes) and Madrid to Málaga (from four hours to two and a half hours).
