With the central objective of recovering to pre-pandemic levels, Iberia has resumed operations in all markets and now operates virtually its entire global network of pre-pandemic destinations in more than 50 countries. The Spanish airline has taken stock of this still difficult year that is about to end, the second of the appearance of COVID-19, a virus that has paralyzed the travel and aviation sector due to the restrictions implemented by governments to contain it. However, the company has bet on recovery by re-establishing air connectivity between Spain and the countries it operates, encouraging demand and thus stimulating the market: its challenge now is to recover the levels of air capacity it operated before the pandemic.
In this regard, the airline has initiated an accelerated recovery of routes and services. In Latin America, Iberia has increased frequencies to Mexico, Dominican Republic, Colombia and Argentina for the first months of 2022.
Likewise, the reopening of the United States to European tourism in November allowed the reactivation of the North Atlantic market for the current winter season, in which Iberia has scheduled 70 weekly flights between Madrid and the cities of New York, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston.
In addition, Iberia, after the success achieved with the launch of Maldives as its star route last summer, decided to include it in its winter program, as well as Cali.
In the domestic market, Iberia increased its offer in the Air Shuttle by 50% to stimulate business travel, as well as domestic routes to cities with demand from the professional segment such as La Coruña, Asturias, Bilbao, Santander and San Sebastián.
