Thursday, January 19, 2012

A press release from Iberia states:

Iberia continues to grow strongly in Panama. In October 2010 it launched direct flights from Madrid, with four weekly flights, and from today (January 16th , 2012) it will operate one more flight every Monday. This frequency is added to those already operating on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Thanks to the flights that With Iberia operates to other destinations in the area and connections with other regional operators, a complete daily schedule is on offer to fly between Europe and Panama.

In addition, Iberia is using in some of its five weekly flights the Airbus A340/600, the largest of its fleet, which has about 100 seats more than the regularly scheduled A340/300 on this route.

Therefore, the supply by Iberia between Europe and Panama in 2012 reached a new record, with a total of 145,000 seats, representing an increase of 33% compared to 2011, the year in which the number of seats very significantly increased. In fact, in two years it has doubled the supply, because in 2010 there were 77,000 seats between Madrid and Panama.

This increase in supply has had a very good response from customers in Iberia, and in 2011, some 90,000 passengers traveled in the company's aircraft between Europe and Panama, which is 35% more than in 2010, maintaining an occupancy rate of 80%.
