On December 1st, Iberia will move from Terminal 7 to the newly remodeled and expanded Terminal 8 of New York's John F.

Iberia has already started its winter season, -which goes from 29 October to 25 March-, marked by the recovery of all its pre-pandemic capacity and a firm commitment to the US market. The United States continues to be a priority market for Iberia, with the airline offering more flights and seats than in the same period of 2019. Specifically, it plans to offer 589,000 seats, an increase of 15% compared to 2019, and around 2,000 flights, 21% more than the year before the pandemic.
Iberia will be offering flights to six destinations in the US this winter: Dallas -which opened in June 2022-, New York, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, and Boston. In addition, the Spanish airline is growing in various destinations in the US compared to last winter, when restrictions on travel from Europe were not lifted until November. In Miami, itwill go from 10 to 14 weekly frequencies -two daily flights- and in New York, from 10 to 13 weekly frequencies, reaching 14 in March.
Likewise, Iberia also announces changes in terms of destinations. The flights to Dallas, which were initially launched to operate in the summer only, will be maintained during the winter season, initially with three weekly frequencies, which will gradually increase until reaching a daily flight starting in June. Iberia's program in the US is complemented by three weekly flights to Boston, another three to Los Angeles and another five weekly flights to Chicago.
