On Wednesday (April 21, 2021), Iberia announced the restart of direct flights between Madrid and Guayaquil, Ecuador starting May 3, 2021. The carrier will offer two weekly flights which will operate on Mondays and Wednesdays, with an evening departure and early morning arrival in Guayaquil to facilitate connections. Iberia will increase the frequency on the route to three weekly flights in June. The route will be operated with an Airbus A330-200 with a 288 passenger capacity, representing nearly 83,000 seats per year on the route.

Commenting on the restart of the Madrid-Guayaquil route, Iberia’s LATAM Sales and Institutional Agreements Director, Victor Moneo, said,


“Recovering our operation with Guayaquil is a source of great joy for Iberia, demonstrating our firm commitment to Ecuador, with an offer of almost 270,000 seats per year. Since the beginning of the crisis caused by this pandemic, Iberia has maintained minimal connectivity with the country and we managed to operate five repatriation flights, three of them with a stopover in Guayaquil. As current circumstances allow, we are working to gradually resume our activity , with our sights set on recovering our usual flight schedule with Ecuador as soon as possible.”

To ensure customers can book with confidence, Iberia offers a flexibility policy which allows ticket changes or voucher refunds if personal circumstances or destination restrictions are impacted by the pandemic. Additionally, Iberia recently announced the restart of service to Cali, Colombia and San Juan, Puerto Rico starting in July. Iberia will also soon resume service to Caracas, Venezuela, expanding their offer to 17 Latin American capitals.
