Iberia Returns to Puerto Rico


Spanish carrier Iberia has officially returned to Puerto Rico.

The company launched its first direct flight to the island in more than three years this weekend.

Iberia will be operating three weekly direct flights to Puerto Rico this summer, with round trip flights on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays.

The service will run through October.

Puerto Rico Tourism Company Executive Director Ingrid Rivera Rocafort said the flights would bring around 7,500 European tourists to Puerto Rico, with an estimated economic boost of $21.2 million.

The flights are being operated on Airbus A330-200 aircraft.

“This itinerary allows you to connect to Puerto Rico from more than 90 cities across Europe, which is a great benefit for both tourism and for trade,” Rocafort said.

Iberia becomes the latest European carrier to launch service to the island, following a successful launch of Norwegian flights to the island out of London.
