Iberia, the Spanish airline and leader in Europe-Latin America routes, presented today in Panama City two new features in its services, including a new "premium" cabin for tourists and benefits for SME's (Small and Medium-sized Enterprises) that join their flight program.

The company, which grew 6 percent more in passenger transport between Europe and Panama in 2017, said that it seeks to attract small and medium-sized companies that need to transport passengers with greater comfort.

"With the Premium Economy class, we are targeting customers who demand more amenities and complementary services on board, which is why we are sure that it will be well received by SMEs and other Panamanian customers," said Iberia's Latin America director, Frédéric. Martínez

After presenting in Panama the new components of the company that begin operating this month, the representative specified that this intermediate product between the economic cabin and "business class" will have a competitive price of about $ 1,499 round trip.

Among Iberia flights linking Panama to Madrid operated by A330-300 aircraft, 21 seats will be offered with 20 percent more separation, wider, 40 percent more reclining, with larger screens and greater hand luggage capacity.

With respect to a new program, "On Business", Martínez said that the advantages that SMEs will have when choosing this service will be the ease of internationalization towards Europe.

"With this (program), small and medium-sized companies can benefit from direct discounts on their tickets, On Business points redeemable for upgradings and other tickets and, also, Avios in the personal account Iberia Plus of the ticket holder," said the spokesman.

To access this benefit, Martínez said that interested companies must have a registration number of the company established in Panama and enter it on the Iberia website.

According to Iberia, in 2018 it will offer about 210,000 seats on the Panama-Madrid route.

The airline that expects to grow more than 6 percent in passenger transport in Latin America, will include this month a fleet of 16 Airbus A350 aircraft.

Iberia expects capacity growth of 7 percent in 2018 compared to last year, with the new routes already announced to San Francisco, Managua and the increase in frequencies to destinations such as Japan, Argentina, Colombia and Chile.
