Starting on Sunday, 6 July, Iberia will offer daily return flights between Madrid and Panama City.

The Spanish airline will thus better connect its European destinations with Panama, one of Latin America’s most attractive and fastest-growing countries. Iberia is the sole airline to provide unbroken service to Panama since 1971.

The increase in flight frequencies will also help consolidate Iberia’s market leadership on routes between Europe and Central America, where the airline also flies direct from Madrid to Guatemala City, San José de Costa Rica and San Salvador, also offering good connections to Managua, Nicaragua and Tegucigalpa, Honduras, with local airlines.
