On Friday (February 17, 2023), Iberia announced that their network between Spain and Latin America will be fully restored for summer 2023, with approximately 280 weekly flights, two percent more than summer 2019. The carrier will offer three daily flights to Mexico, increase flights to Bogotá from 14 to 18 weekly frequencies, and increase service to Lima from seven to 10 weekly flights. In the US, the carrier will resume summer seasonal service to San Francisco and (SFO) Washington DC (IAD), while offering daily flights to Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW).

Additionally, the carrier will offer service to popular summer European destinations, including Corfu, Mykonos and Santorini (Greece), Dubrovnik, Split and Zagreb (Croatia), Catania and Olbia (Italy), and Faro, Punta Delgada (Portugal), joining year-round flights to Lisbon, Porto and Funchal. Iberia will also grow service to Stockholm, Dusseldorf, Oslo, Venice, Milan and Rome. In Spain, the carrier will focus on the Air Shuttle between Madrid and Barcelona, offering the same capacity as summer 2019. Services will also be increased to Bilbao with up to 38 weekly flights, A Coruña with up to 31 weekly frequencies, and Santander, with an increase this summer from three to four weekly flights.

In Thursday’s announcement, Iberia’s Director – Commercial, Networks & Alliances, María Jesús López-Solás, said,

“Latin America and the Caribbean have always been at the centre of our strategy, but this year we will go further to increase our presence in markets such as Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru, strengthen our leadership on routes between Latin America and Europe and, at the same time, support the role of Madrid’s airport as a bridge between both regions.”

Iberia will offer approximately 280 weekly flights to 18 destinations in 16 Latin American countries for summer 2023. During the last year, the carrier grew their service to Bogotá from 10 to 14 weekly frequencies, which will increase to 18 weekly flights for June and three daily flights from November, triple 2019 capacity.
