IAG member carrier Level is set to launch new flights from its Barcelona hub to Santiago de Chile and New York JFK next year.

The news was posted on industry website routesonline.com, and was also referred to in a LinkedIn post by Chris Brown, Head of Marketing and Customer Experience for the airline.

According to routesonline.com the new flights between Barcelona and the Chilean capital will initially launch as a twice weekly service from March 31, 2019, before increasing to four flights per week from July 30. There are currently no nonstop flights between the two cities.

Meanwhile the new route to New York JFK will operate thrice weekly from July 27, 2019. US carriers American Airlines and Delta both offer flights on this route.

In addition routesonline.com reports that level will increase the frequency of its Barcelona – San Francisco services from two to three flights per week, from July 28, 2019.

Last month Level moved its flights from Barcelona to the San Francisco area, from Oakland International to San Francisco International.

In July Level announced plans to add two additional A330-200s to its fleet in 2019.

Level launched low-cost long-haul flights from Barcelona in June 2017, before adding services from Paris Orly, and more recently launching short-haul flights from Vienna.
