San Salvador from Europe

IBERIA next Saturday (2 October) will start flying between San Salvador and Madrid, becoming the first European airline to link the two cities directly.  The four new weekly flights (on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays) will also allow travellers to connect to other Central American cities with codeshare partner TACA, and to other European cities from Madrid with Iberia.  The carrier will use Airbus A340/300 aircraft, with capacity for 254 passengers, including 36 Business Plus flat-bed seats.  Iberia currently flies from Europe to Costa Rica, Guatemala and Panama.  The new flights will help consolidate the carrier's presence in Central America, and increase its market share, currently 42% (or 52% for Business Class travellers) of all European flights to the region. www.iberia.com
