Iberia Adds Central America-Madrid Flights

The Spanish airline will operate a fifth weekly flight to Guatemala and Panama on Sundays.

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

The fourth frequency was added only last May, which indicates the success of this route.

According to Iberia, the figures speak for themselves. In 2007 Iberia carried 253,000 passengers between Central America and Europe, a 17.5 per cent rise on 2006, with average seat occupancy of nearly 90 per cent. In 2009 capacity will be hiked to 357,000, an increase of 6.5 per cent from 2008 and of 26 per cent from 2007.

Iberia, which this month is marking the fourth anniversary of its services to Guatemala, Panama and Costa Rica, is showing its commitment to Central America with the additional service. It is the sole European airline to service the region without interruption since 1971. Since 2005, the first full year of these flights to the region, seat supplies have almost doubled.
