Iberia continues to ramp up its flight schedules to Latin America, with destinations including Bogota and Lima set to benefit from extra frequencies this cummer.

The Spanish flag carrier will offer around 280 weekly flights to 18 destinations across 16 Latin American countries, an increase of around 2 per cent on summer 2019.

Referring to Colombia as “one of Iberia’s star markets”, the airline has announced plans to reach three flights per day to the capital Bogota by November – triple the frequency operated in 2019.

Elsewhere the carrier will increase frequencies to the Peruvian capital Lima from seven to ten per week starting from June, “with the intention of reaching two daily flights”, and has recently increased service to the Uruguayan capital Montevideo to daily.

There will also be a focus on the US, with nearly 20 per cent more flights being operated to the country this summer than in 2019.

The airline will offer up to 124 weekly flights from Spain to Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco and Washington DC.

Dallas has fared particularly well, having been launched as a seasonal service in April 2022, before being extended into the winter season.

The current four-times-weekly service will increase to five flights per week from April, six in May and finally daily between June and October.

Iberia recently took delivery of the first of its A350 long-haul aircraft to feature a new business class seat with a sliding privacy door and a longer bed.
