Iberia is strengthening increasing its commitment to Uruguay by increasing the frequency of its non-stop Madrid-Montevideo flights to five per week.
Iberia’s new Airbus A330/200 MTOW 242t will be used for Montevideo flights starting in March. Iberia is the first airline to fly the new generation Airbus model, with a maximum capacity on take-off of 242 tonnes and a range of 11,500 kilometres.
In 1946, Iberia became the first airline with regular flights between Europe and Latin America when it launched its Madrid-Buenos Aires route, with a stop in Montevideo.
Iberia is the leading airline on routes between Europe and Latin America, with 256 flights per week to 20 Latin American destinations, including five that were launched or resumed in the past two years: Montevideo, Santo Domingo, Havana, Cali and Medellin. In May it will resume services to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
