AirPlus and Air Europe to take over Iberia connections to the Caribbean
HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) — The withdrawal by Iberia from Caribbean markets such as Cuba and Santo Domingo has raised the interest by other airlines in taking over. Air Europe already announced flights to the Dominican Republic in April, after the Spanish airline cancels that route.
According to the Caribbean and Latin America Tourist Journal (www.arecoa.com), Air Europe is not the only airline interested in the routes left by Iberia. AirPlus could already be planning flights to the Caribbean before the summer, particularly to those destinations where Air Europe is already operating, such as Buenos Aires, Santo Domingo and Havana.
According to the website, the airline, managed by Julio Martinez, will commence its service only after it purchases a plane from a Portuguese company. The project involves an Airbus A-340 aircraft similar to those used in Iberia’s services to Latin America, and which the company expects progressively to replace with A-330 airplanes.
The website also announced that the Airbus A-340 would not be in a condition to offer commercial services for the first time until May.
