After a break of nearly 18 months, Iberia has reinstated the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo to its long-haul network from Madrid. It will face incumbent Air Europa on the city pair, which started its own flights between the two capitals last June.
- Iberia has restarted operations from its Madrid (MAD) hub to the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo (MVD), a route which it last operated in March 2013. Commencing on 31 August, the four times weekly operation will be flown by the IAG airline’s 254-seat A340s. The following day, the oneworld carrier started five times weekly flights to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic with its 289-seat A330-300s. Both routes will face competition from the incumbent Air Europa, with Montevideo being flown four times weekly, while Santo Domingo is operated daily.
