Low-cost, long-haul airline Level is to increase the frequency of its Barcelona-Buenos Aires route later this year.

The IAG member carrier launched flights from Barcelona to Los Angeles, San Francisco Oakland, Buenos Aires and Punta Cana in June, using A330 aircraft operated by Iberia crew.

At the time of the launch IAG’s CEO Willie Walsh said that “Level sales have exceeded our expectations”, and the carrier has now confirmed via Twitter that it will increase flights on its Barcelona-Buenos Aires route from three to five services per week from October 29.

Fellow low-cost carrier Norwegian recently announced plans to launch a new route from Gatwick to Buenos Aires, with flights scheduled to launch in February 2018.

Level aircraft are fitted with 293 economy and 21 premium economy seats. Economy passengers pay for extras including checked luggage, meals, seat selection and in-flight entertainment, while premium economy customers get these benefits included in their ticket.

In-flight wifi is also available “with prices starting at €8.99”, and passengers are able to earn and redeem Avios on Level flights.
