Iberia continues to open up new destinations: after Montevideo, Santo Domingo, Istanbul and Athens, now it’s the turn of Havana, Medellin and Cali.
With these new incorporations, the figure of new destinations opened in the past year climbs to 23.
The Havana route, which was suspended two years ago, will begin to operate on 1 June, with five direct flights per week, on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. The flights to Cali and Medellin, cities that Iberia has never flown to before, will begin on 3 July, with three weekly flights, on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
Iberia president Luis Gallego said:
“I am delighted to be able to announce Iberia’s return to Cuba. When we suspended flights with Havana two years ago we promised to return as soon as we could make the route sustainable in the long-term. That time has come. All the changes the company has made in recent months allow us to not only return to Cuba but initiate flights to new Latin American destinations such as Cali and Medellin, further shoring up Iberia’s current leadership position in the region”.
The three destinations will also be covered by the new A330 aircraft.
