Iberia is preparing to offer full service for the winter timetable
It’s been a while, but Iberia prepares to scale a full service for winter time.
The airline is pushing for full service, with the relaunch of the last suspended routes in Latin America, the expansion of its American network and the development of its short and medium-haul networks
Back to Latin America
Iberia will fill the last gaps in its network in Latin America, with direct flights to Rio de Janeiro and Caracas to return. These will be offered three times a week on each of the routes from November.
Meanwhile, there are frequency increases for Havanawhich goes from three flights per week to five, Guatemala-El Salvador go every day and Quito six weekly flights are consolidated, to which are added three others with Guayaquil.
Bogotá and Buenos Aires will see their services increased to two daily flights
In addition, Santiago de Chile, Lima and Sao Paulo and San José de Costa Rica will offer daily flights., whereas Montevideo and Panama will have six weekly flights and Porto Rico with four flights per week throughout the winter.
Iberia launched its dallas service this summer, the flight connecting to the network of American Airlines, as well as its joint venture partners British Airways and Finnair, with an Airbus A330.
The move allowed the airline to maintain service for three weeks in winter and four in March.
In addition, Miami scales up to 14 flights per week with two daily flights and New Yorkwhich will increase from 10 to 13 weekly frequencies which will reach 14 in March.
The regional network will expand, with many boosts across Europe.
- Milano go 35 times a week
- Rome go 37 times a week
- Lisbon up to 40 weekly flights (with up to six daily flights)
- Funchal with three weekly frequencies
- Geneva will increase to 34 weekly frequencies (up to five daily flights)
- Brussels will increase to 27 flights per week, with up to three daily frequencies
Iberia, Iberia Express and Iberia Regional/Air Nostrum will offer a flight schedule focused on business traffic and the Balearic and Canary Islands to boost the network during the winter season.
The Madrid-Barcelona Air Bridge will be fully restored to 87 weekly frequencies and up to 15 daily flights per direction.
- Bilbao up to six daily flights
- La Coruña up to four daily flights
- Asturias up to four daily flights
- vigo up to four daily flights
- santiago has up to three daily flights
- Santander up to three daily flights
- San Sebastian up to three daily flights
Normal for some routes
It appears that Iberia is taking advantage of the situation and returning to a full operation, with partners Air Nordstorm and Iberia Express to provide transport on its network.
With its long-haul service also strengthening, it should offer valuable options for those who need to travel, as well as belly space for cargo.
The trick for the airline will be to sustain this growth beyond the winter.
