Iberia has launched several direct services to Latin America, including Panama City, Cordoba in Argentina, and the capital of El Salvador.
The new non-stop flights from Madrid to Panama City launched on October 1, and depart on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, adding to the carrier’s connecting services to the capital of Panama via both Miami and San José. Iberia says the new service reduces travel time to Panama by four hours, and represents a 55 per cent increase in the carrier’s seat availability to the country.
The carrier also launched four-times weekly flights to San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador, on October 2. These two new Central American services add to existing routes to San José (Costa Rica) and Guatemala City.
Finally Iberia also commenced three-times weekly flights to Cordoba on October 2. Plying the route on Monday, Thursday and Saturday, Iberia is the first European airline to fly directly to Argentina’s second largest city.
There are no direct flights from London to any of these destinations, so BA’s merger and transatlantic joint business with Iberia should mean good news for UK-based travellers looking to reach Latin America.
