Iberia’s most profitable route in the region will see an increase of five weekly flights over the current operation: between April and October, it will have 19 weekly flights, operated by Airbus A350-900.
As of February 2022, Iberia will have two daily flights between Madrid (MAD) and Bogota (BOG) with Airbus A350-900, thereby exceeding the capacity offered prior to the pandemic.

More flights and destinations to the US
During the 2022 summer season, Iberia will offer its largest selection of destinations to the United States with a total of nine: The lifting of travel restrictions has allowed the airline to significantly increase its operations to the country.

From April to August, Iberia will offer five weekly flights between Madrid (MAD) to San Juan de Puerto Rico (SJU), one more flight than the current offer.
