Initially, they will request the use of a larger aircraft with greater capacity and an additional frequency to the current four per week.

"Iberia began flights between Madrid and Panama in October, after reaching an agreement with the ATP for 4 million dollars, which is partly used to promote the route. Minister Shamah said current flights recorded an occupancy close to 100%, which is makes it necessary to use larger aircraft and more weekly flights," published Prensa.com.
