Iberia turns to the US with a historic number of seats

  • The company reinforces its operations for winter, offering 589,000 seats and around 2,000 flights, which represents 15% and 21% more than in 2019
  • It grows in several destinations in the US and maintains the route with Dallas throughout the season.

Iberia reinforces its presence in one of its priority markets, the United States. During the winter season, which starts on October 29, it will offer 589,000 seats, which represents an increase of 15 percent compared to 2019, and around 2,000 flights, 21 percent more than the year before the pandemic (Iberia allies with Madrid to reactivate the US market).

Likewise, it incorporates novelties in terms of destinations. Flights to Dallas, which were initially launched to operate this summer, will continue through the winter season. They will initially do so with three weekly frequencies (with A330), which will gradually increase until reaching daily flights from June 2023.

In addition, Iberia grows in several destinations in the US compared to last winter. In Miami it will go from 10 to 14 weekly frequencies and in New York, from 10 to 13 weekly frequencies, which will reach 14 in March (Iberia: “USA will be one of our star markets in 2022”).

In Los Angeles, where it will operate three flights per week, it will also increase its offer thanks to the use of A350 aircraft, which already covered the route this summer.

The list is completed by Chicago (between 5 and 7 weekly flights depending on the month), Boston (between 3 and 5 weekly flights depending on the month) and Puerto Rico (4 weekly). Meanwhile, flights to Washington will resume from March 2023, coinciding with the start of the summer season, and those from San Francisco will do so in May.
