Air France to operate 50 per cent of schedules during November and December

Iberia reactivates flights to America with a dropper and from October the weekly frequencies will suffer an increase of 36%, going from the 42 that it has operated between July and September to about 57 as of October. Starting in October, the airline will connect Spain with a total of 16 destinations in America, as long as there are no last minute changes. The destinations with the most frequencies are Dallas (seven per week), Mexico City (five), Buenos Aires (five but one of them operated by Level) and New York (also with four from Iberia and one from Level). They are followed with four flights a week Santiago de Chile, Santo Domingo and Miami. Behind are Bogotá, Lima, Montevideo, Quito and San José, all of them with three weekly frequencies. With two are Panama City, San Salvador and Caracas. Finally, in October there will be one flight per week to Habana. However, the number of frequencies has been minimal due to mobility restrictions in different countries.

Air France has outlined its planned operations for the start of the winter schedules, which will see it serve 170 destinations by the end of the year.

The carrier said it will operate 50 per cent of its planned flight schedule during November and December, serving almost all of its regular winter network, with frequencies adapted to the level of demand. Flights will operate to all 67 destinations, and there will be 43 domestic routes from Paris CDG, Paris Orly and Lyon Saint-Exupery, most of which will offer day return services.
