Iberia Launches New Flights to San Francisco and Managua
October 22
10:00 2017

MIAMI — The Spanish flag carrier, Iberia, announced new services to San Francisco, California (SFO), and Managua, Nicaragua (MGA).

The first route will be non-stop return flights between Madrid and San Francisco—an all-new destination for the airline—three flights per week, set to begin in late April 2018 until the end of September.

Managua will restart in October and will also offer three weekly non-stop flights to Madrid and with one stop in Guatemala City from Madrid to Managua.

These new destinations are the result of Iberia’s program called Plan de Futuro (in English, Plan of the Future), launched in 2013, with the goal to transform and modernize the carrier.

As of the first year, the airline managed to reduce losses in half, and the efforts made in the consecutive years transformed into operation reinforcement, 30 new routes, cost reductions, and a new long-haul fleet.

Plan de Futuro’s first phase ended this Summer, and its second one, which just began, is yielding its fruits.

Regarding the program’s success, Iberia’s chairman Luis Gallego said, For another year, our Plan de Futuro and the efforts and commitment of everyone are making it possible for us to open up new routes. Keeping them, and continuing to enter new markets, will depend on our ability to increase our competitiveness still further, and to continue to improve service to our customers.”
