After offering flights from eight destinations this summer (brand new Dallas & Washington D.C., plus New York, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco & Puerto Rico), Iberia will offer more frequencies and seats than it did in the same period of 2019 in the upcoming winter season.
The season, which began on October 29, 2022, has scheduled an offer of 589,000 seats, which represents an increase of 15% compared to 2019, and around 2,000 flights, 21% more than the year before the pandemic.
Likewise, Iberia announced updates to its destinations. The flights from Dallas, which were initially launched to operate this summer, will be maintained during the winter season, initially with three weekly frequencies, which will gradually increase to daily flights starting in June 2023.
These flights will be operated with greater-capacity A330 aircraft equipped with Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabins, providing customers with an optimised travel experience.
In addition, Iberia has added more routes from several US destinations compared to last winter, when the restrictions for travel to and from Europe were not lifted until November. In Miami it will go from 10 to 14 weekly frequencies (two daily flights) and in New York, from 10 to 13 weekly frequencies, reaching 14 in March.
There will also be increased flights from Los Angeles, which, from the start of the summer season (April 2023), will be operated with A350 aircraft. The airline's latest aircraft offers greater capacity and are 30% to 35% more efficient thanks to their state-of-the-art components, and the advanced design of their Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines.
