Iberia leaves Covid behind and will recover its capacity in the winter season
Iberia warms up engines. The airline has assured that it will recover all its pre-pandemic capacity in the winter season (it runs from October 29 to March 25), and that in the first quarter of 2023, and thanks to the arrival of new aircraft, will experience a growth of 105% on its 2019 capacity. In a statement, it has detailed that in the last quarter of the year it will operate 95% of its capacity, and that already in the first quarter of 2023, it will experience a growth of 105%, which, in the global of the winter season, “it will translate into an offer that already matches the network of flights and frequencies that it offered before the pandemic”.
Iberia has highlighted that it has already restored its entire network of flights and destinations in Latin America; grows in the United States with the route to Dallas; and will make a greater deployment in several routes of its short and medium radio network in Spain and Europe. In detail, it has ensured that, in Spain, in the short and medium radio network it will deploy greater capacity since in the winter of 2019, increasing its presence both in destinations with more corporate traffic like on vacation. “In Spain, Iberia strengthens its position in the Air Bridge, and recovers all the frequencies that it operated before the pandemic,” added the group.
It will offer up to 86 weekly flights between Madrid and Barcelona, and customers will have up to fifteen daily flights in each direction, with Wednesdays being the days with the most operations. This represents about 700,000 seats, slightly above supply in 2019 due to, mainly because the route will be operated by Airbus A320neo aircraft with greater capacity. Likewise, the company has highlighted that in Latin America, this weekend it has already recovered 100% of its network, with the direct flights to Rio de Janeiro and Caracas, the last two destinations that were pending after the pandemic, and with three weekly frequencies on each of the routes. In Mexico it is also growing and it will be the market with the greatest offer with three daily flights, together with Bogotá -which increases from ten to fourteen weekly frequencies-, and Buenos Aires, where Iberia consolidates the two daily flights this season.
Iberia will add this winter about 260 weekly flights -mostly newspapers- linking Europe with eighteen destinations in sixteen Latin American countries. Regarding the US, Iberia has indicated that the region continues to gain prominence in its network and, for the coming winter monthshas increased its capacity compared to 2019. Specifically, it has planned an offer of 589,000 seats, which represents an increase of 15% compared to 2019, and around 2,000 flights, 21% more than in winter prepandemic. Iberia maintains the route to Dallas throughout the year, and in December it will move to T8 at JFK airport in New York. In Europe, growth in Italy stands out (Rome and Milan), France (Paris), Switzerland (Geneva) and Portugal, where the route to Funchal will operate all winter, has concluded.
