Iberia Expands its Reach to the Americas for Summer 2024

Iberia, the Spanish airline and a part of the IAG Group, recently unveiled its ambitious growth plans for the summer of 2024. From March 25th to October 28th, Iberia is set to operate up to 328 weekly flights connecting its hub at Madrid International Airport (MAD) to destinations across the Americas. This expansion is particularly significant for strengthening the historical ties between Spain and Latin America.

Iberia will maintain its status as the European airline with the most extensive network of flights to Latin America. Currently serving 18 destinations in 16 countries, the airline's summer schedule for 2024 reveals exciting developments:

  • Buenos Aires: An increase from 14 to 17 weekly flights.

  • Sao Paulo: A rise from 7 to 10 weekly flights.

  • Rio de Janeiro: Offering 6 weekly flights from June to September.

  • Bogotá: Experiencing remarkable growth from 18 weekly flights to 3 daily flights, marking the most substantial expansion in the region.

  • Mexico City: Maintaining its 3 daily flights with A350 aircraft. Future expansion to cities like Guadalajara or Monterrey may be considered.

  • Lima: Maintaining a consistent 13 weekly flights year-round.

  • Quito: Growing from 6 to 7 weekly flights.

  • Guayaquil: Expanding from 3 to 5 weekly flights from June to September.

  • Santiago de Chile: Increasing from 7 to 10 weekly flights.

  • Montevideo: Continuing its daily flight to Madrid.

  • Central America: Offering daily flights to Guatemala, San Salvador, and San José, Costa Rica, along with 4 weekly flights to Panama.

  • The Caribbean: Enhancing its presence with San Juan, P.R., increasing from 5 to 7 weekly flights, and maintaining daily flights to Santo Domingo and 3 weekly flights to Havana.

  • Caracas: Maintaining the growth achieved this year with 5 weekly flights.

In total, Iberia will operate up to 164 weekly flights between Madrid and Latin America during the peak tourist demand months, which, when combined with the return flights, amounts to the announced 328 flights for the region in 2024. It's worth noting that these figures do not yet factor in the operations of Air Europa, with which a merger process is underway, further strengthening their presence in Latin America.

But there's more – Iberia is also expanding its operations to the United States, offering up to 126 flights to 8 destinations. This includes 2 daily flights to New York-Kennedy and Miami, a daily flight to Chicago, Boston, and Dallas, as well as daily flights to Los Angeles from June to September (5 weekly flights in other months). Additionally, the airline will operate seasonal flights with 4 weekly flights to Washington-Dulles and 3 to San Francisco.

On another front, Iberia's low-cost subsidiary, LEVEL, will commence flights from Barcelona to Miami starting March 31st with 3 weekly frequencies. This route joins LEVEL's existing routes from Barcelona to Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Boston. In April, Iberia will also add Tirana, Albania, to its network with 3 weekly flights.

Iberia's continuous expansion includes the addition of destinations like Dubrovnik, Split, and Zagreb in Croatia with up to 9 weekly flights in August; Catania, Italy, with up to 9 weekly flights; and Ponta Delgada in the Azores, Portugal, with 3 weekly flights. The airline is also increasing its frequencies to Greek islands, including Corfu, Mykonos, and Santorini, as well as Olbia in Sardinia, Italy, from May to September. Bergen, Norway, will see flights operating from May to September.

With these dynamic operations, Iberia remains the airline with the most extensive connections between Europe and Latin America via its Madrid hub. This expansion strengthens IAG's position as the Group with the most comprehensive options for travelers between the two continents.
