Iberia Latin America boost

Starting with this year’s winter season, Iberia is boosting its services to its increasingly-competitive Latin America destinations with three additional weekly flights to both Buenos Aires and Mexico City.

As of 27 October, the IAG member airline will increase weekly flights to Buenos Aires, which it has served since 1946, from 14 to 17, using Airbus A330-200s with 19 seats in Business and 269 in Economy. Available seats will rise by 90,000 to 625,000 a year.

Iberia, a member of the Star Alliance, is also scheduling 17 flights a week between Madrid and Mexico City, which the airline has operated since 1950, for the 2018-19 winter, three more than last year, which means an additional 30,000 seats (+13%) compared to 2017-18.

A third flight is being added to the midday, afternoon and night flights on Monday, Thursday and Sunday afternoons from Madrid, and return flights from Mexico City on Monday, Tuesday and Friday afternoons.

Like the existing daily flights, the new ones will be operated by Airbus A340-600s, with room for 36 passengers in Business, 23 in Premium Economy and 300 in Economy.
